Safari Itinerary

Day 1 Kabalega Resort Hotel, Murchison Falls
After meeting your guides in Kampala, we will make our way to the Murchison Falls National Park. The Murchiso Falls, also referred to as the Kabaraga Falls National Park, is a waterfall found on the course of the great Nile and is located within the Murchison National Park. This afternoon we will enjoy a game drive through the park in search of the great diversity of wild animals including lion, buffalo, leopards, elephant and numerous bird species. Note: as the Chimp Trekking is limited to 12 guests per trek, should there be more than 12 guests on a tour, the trekking will be split over two days. Therefore, you may find that you will first do the game drive activity followed by the Chimp trekking the following day or vice versa. Please allow for flexibility. (D)

Day 2 Kabalega Resort Hotels, Budongo Central Forest Reseve
This morning we will meet up with our chimp guide who will take us on our trek through the forest in search of the chimps. Please allow for flexibility as this activity may take place on the previous day. (BLD)

Day 3 Kampala
This morning is set aside to participate in any activities, should we not have been able to participate in them the previous days. It's then onto Kampala where you will have the afternoon free to take in the atmosphere of this bustling city. (BL)

Day 4 & 5 Lake Bonyonyi Overland Resort, Gorillas
As permits granting permission to visit the gorillas are extremely limited we require flexibility in both the tour itinerary and where we we actually visit them. The home of the mountain gorillas is completely at odds with man-made borders and so their range encompasses Uganda, Rwanda and the DRC (Democratic Republc of the Congo). Whenever possible we choose to make use of the National Park in Uganda, but this depends on the availability of permits. Should we not obtain permits to visit the mountain gorillas in Uganda then we will inform all the passengers beforehand that the tour will travel to Rwanda or DRC. On your free day in Bonyonyi you will have the opportunity to participate in certain optional activities. You can also go hiking or explore the area on a mounain bike. (BD/BD)

Day 6 Lake Bunyonyi Overland Resort, Gorillas
Although there are 2 days allocated to Gorilla Trekking, you will only spend one day on the trek. The other days are there to provide a large enough window in which to obtain permits and to allow the entire group to trek if there are more than 6 of you on the tour. Today we will enjoyn a visit to the Nyombi Village, a Pygmy village which is reached by motor boat from Bunyonyi Resort. We will have the oppertunity to learn about the culture of the Pygmies and how they live. (BLD)

Day 7 Kampala – no accomodation
Today we make our way back to Uganda's capital, Kampala. End of tour.(B)
