Day 2: Transfer to Kibale National Park for Chimpanzee

Kibale National Park is popular for its primates like the chimpanzees, Colobus monkeys, grey-cheeked mangabeys and red-tailed monkeys. On your chimpanzee trails, these are regularly seen swinging in the forest trees and others feeding on the wild fruits.

An experienced ranger guide will take you chimp tracking and you will be marveled at the sights of primates here. Once you locate the chimpanzees, you will have a full hour with them. Return to your accommodation for some rest time and lunch. Later, go out for the Bigodi Swamp walk. The Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary is a fascinating area, located in the Magombe swamp. This area is recognized for its extensive array of biodiversity among which are several primate species like the baboons, black and white Colobus monkeys, vervet monkeys and the L’Hoest monkeys. The Bigodi is also a paradise for bird watchers. Among the major bird species within the sanctuary is the grand blue turaco.

After breakfast, you will exit Kibale National Park and continue your journey to Queen Elizabeth National Park. Queen is Uganda’s second largest park, located at the base of the majestic Rwenzori Mountain range, adjacent to Lake Edward and Lake George. The park’s diverse ecosystem which includes sprawling savannah makes it the ideal habitat for a classic big game, ten primate species including chimpanzees and over 600 species of birds. You will reach Queen early enough to rest, have lunch and later go for a boat safari along the Kazinga Channel which joins Lake George to Lake Edward. You will surely be fascinated by the concentrations of giant hippos, elephants and crocodiles among others. You will also see many varieties of birds on the water shores. On your way back, you will have an evening game drive then return to the accommodation for dinner and later your overnight rest.

Return to your accommodation for some rest time and lunch. In the afternoon, you will go for the explosion crater drive. The drive is basically sightseeing with a very spectacular view of the breathtaking scenery in and around Queen. There is also plenty of wildlife to see along the drive although the commonest are sights of Cape buffaloes plus elephants. Return to the accommodation for relaxation, dinner and the overnight stay.

With a strenuous day ahead, you will do less on arrival but just check into your accommodation. Relax as you prepare for the Bwindi gorilla trekking experience the following day.

Accommodation: Rushaga Gorilla Havens Lodge |  Meals: Breakfast - Lunch - Dinner  |  Drive Time: 4-5Hours.

Day 7: Gorilla Trekking Bwindi Forest and Transfer to Lake Bunyonyi

After an early breakfast and a briefing by a ranger guide, you will enter the gorilla sanctuary for your adventure. The beauty of this rainforest is spectacular! The area offers a dramatic steeply forested landscape and is incredibly dense, but crisscrossed by numerous animal trails allowing access to tourists. The time taken and the terrain varies with the movements of these great primates. Once you locate a gorilla group, you will be allowed an hour in their presence. The thrill of spending time observing these gentle and endangered giants is an awesome, exciting experience to be long-savored. Return to your lodge for some rest time and lunch. Thereafter, embark on a transfer to Lake Bunyonyi. You will reach and do little but check into your accommodation, relax, and enjoy your dinner and overnight stay.

Accommodation: Heritage Lodge Habuharo |  Meals: Breakfast - Lunch - Dinner  |  Drive Time: 4-5 Hours.
