Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Bwindi National Park

Depart for Bwindi Impenetrable forest National Park in the morning at 8.00am. The park is situated in southwestern Uganda on the edge of the western rift valley. This safari will take a minimum of nine hours drive from Kampala. The drive takes you through the grasslands of Ankole, a common sight is the famous long-horned cattle; then to the highlands of Kigezi commonly known as Switzerland of Africa with their beautifully terraced hills. Break off for lunch at any hotel en route. Continue with the journey through beautiful scenery and arrive Bwindi National Park in the evening. This park is home of the rare mountain gorillas. Apart from gorillas, there are a wide variety of primates to see including the blue and red tailed monkeys. The forest itself is lush and green and there are streams running through it. You will check in at Buhoma Community Campsite, for dinner and overnight.

Day 2: Bwindi National Park

After breakfast set off early with your guide to track the gorillas. The thrill of your encounter will erase the difficulties of the potentially strenuous trek. Spend time in awe watching the gorillas go about their activities. Each encounter is different and has its own rewards, but you are likely to enjoy the close view of adults feeding, grooming and resting as the youngsters frolic and swing from vines in a delightfully playful display. Return to camp. Have dinner and over night at Buhoma Community Campsite.

Day 3: Queen Elizabeth National Park

After breakfast, depart northwards for Queen Elizabeth National Park. The drive takes you through the unique western rift valley escarpment. Carry out a game drive in Ishasha sector in search of tree climbing lions before proceeding to the Mweya Peninsular; park headquarters. Arrive in the evening and check in at your Lodge. The park boasts of a variety of big game like; lions, buffaloes, kobs,
elephants, bushbucks, and leopard. Have dinner and over night at Mweya Campsite. Overlooking the Great Lakes of Africa and the lush Kazinga channel connecting Lake Edward and George.

Day 4: Kyambura Gorge

Rise before the sun and drive to Kyambura Gorge for a thrilling
Chimpanzee safari. The gorge is the natural home of habituated chimpanzees. Your guided walk may last three to five hours and in addition to seeing the chimps, the trip may yield sightings of the colobus monkeys, baboons, red tailed and velvet monkeys, and other primates. It is important to note that the chimpanzee safari is subject to availability of permits and good weather because occasional flooding can make the trails impassable. After lunch, drive to the dock, for an afternoon launch cruise on the Kazinga Channel, which joins Lakes Edward and George. It is a waterway that is filled with schools of hippos, buffaloes, and elephants, which can be seen at the banks. There are also a rich variety of birds on the channel. Retire to the Campsite for dinner and over night.

Day 5: Salt Lake

Before sunrise go for the early morning game drive to catch-up with the early risers and predators returning to their hideouts. You are likely to meet grazing hippos, elephants, lions, spotted hyenas and leopards, bushbuck, water buck and stripped jackal and of-course the several warthogs. Visit a Salt Lake (salt explosions) to see how salt is mined locally and its different grades. You learn the participation of the local people, especially the women, in salt mining and the relationship between the park Authorities and the local community in the area. Return to Kampala with lunch en route. Along the way you will see banana plantations, long horned cattle and the undulating hills of Ankole.
