Searching for the spectacular Mountain Gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, chimpanzee tracking in Kyambura Gorge, multiple game drives in Queen Elizabeth National Park with its amazing selection of wildlife, including the tree climbing lions, and an optional visit to Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary on the beautiful Lake Victoria.

Days 1-4 | Entebbe & Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

On arrival at Entebbe Airport you'll be transferred to your hotel and depending on your time of arrival, can spend time exploring the city. We'll take a short flight to Bwindi where we will have the opportunity for two days of gorilla tracking, as well as forest walks, visits to a local school or orphanage or the Batwa pygmy village, and curio shopping if you fancy it!

Days 5-8 | Queen Elizabeth National Park

From here we drive a relatively short distance to to Ishasha in the southern part of Queen Elizabeth National Park to experience game drives looking for the huge herds of buffalo, elephant, Uganda kob and of course the famous tree-climbing lion typically found in the area. Heading north in this park we come to the ‘Mweya’ sector which is rich with wildlife with vast numbers of Uganda’s unique and strange Euphorbia, or “candelabra” tree. The many nearby crater lakes and mountain ranges provide a beautiful backdrop for your journey, and here we also enjoy a leisurely boat cruise along the Kazinga Channel, where the shores are dotted with herds of elephant, buffalo, pods of hippos, and countless bird species. After tracking chimpanzees in the Kyambura Gorge we take a short flight back to Entebbe for onward journeys home or extended African adventures.
