Itinerary

Day 1  Hotel No.5, Entebbe 

Upon arrival at Entebbe Airport you will be met and transferred to your hotel, the remainder of the day is free to relax or explore

Day 2  Buhoma Lodge, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

This morning, a wonderful scenic flight will take you from Entebbe to Kihihi airport and from here a 90minute drive through local villages and bumpy mountain roads takes you to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, a World Heritage Site and one of East Africa’s richest eco–systems with over 120 mammal and 345 bird species.  Perhaps best–known as being home to nearly half of the world’s endangered mountain gorillas. Buhoma offers eco–friendly accommmodation overlooking this pristine rain forest

Day 3&4 Buhoma Lodge, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest GORILLA TRACKING

Today heralds one of the most rewarding and humbling wildlife activities – gorilla tracking and coming face to face with one of the intelligent and gentle giants is something words cannot aptly describe and it certainly worth the hike to get there. An hour is spent among the group as you watch them feed, relax or the youngsters playing.  Note sightings are not guaranteed and treks can be strenuous.  On day 4 there is the option for a second visit or perhaps explore the Bwindi area on forest walks,visit local communities or the Batwa pygmy village.

Day 5 & 6  Ishasha Wilderness Camp, South Queen Elizabeth National Park

Onward to the Ishasha Community Uplift Project and immerse yourself with an interactive tour with local Ugandans, seeing a little of how they traditionally live before making our way to Queen Elizabeth National Park. There is a wealth of wildlife from famed tree–climbing lions, to endemic Uganda kob antelope, as well as huge herds of elephants and buffalo, as well as perennial and migratory birds.  Day 6 brings a full day exploring this wonderful historic park known for its rich bio–diversity finishing off with a bush sun–downer

Day 7 Mweya Safari Lodge, North Queen Elizabeth National Park 

Journeying north to the Mweya section of the park, enjoy a leisurely boat cruise along the famed Kazinga Channel – a haven for numerous birds, many of which migrate to warmer climes.  The cruise also offers a spectacular view of local fishing villages and the gorgeous Mweya Peninsula.  Your lodge is surrounded by the magical Rwenzori Mountains 

Day 8 & 9 Primate Lodge, Kibale Forest National Park  CHIMP TRACKING

A brief photo stop at the equator before continuing ot Kyambura Gorge and chimp tracking where the forest comes along at the noise and activity of chimps as they move quickly through the forest and treetops. As one of the closest relatives to humankind, watching their behaviour is both entertaining and perhaps a little unnerving! Note sightings are not guaranteed.  During your stay,in the wildlife–rich location, watch out for other primates including red–tailed monkey, diademed monkey, olive baboons an black & white colobus. It’s also a terrific loation for birds with around 300 species and up to 150 species of butterfly
