Day 3: Murchison Falls National Park, game drive and boat safari

Today we set off early in the morning on our first game drive in the park. Murchison NP offers a wide variety of different animals.  Lions, leopards, elephants, giraffes, hartebeests, oribis and of course the Uganda kobs are the best known. Your guide will take you to the most beautiful places and will never tire of answering your questions. The vegetation with the savannah and the riverside forest will inspire you. After lunch, you will set off on a boat safari towards Murchison Falls. Crocodiles, hippos and water birds accompany you on your trip on the Nile to the impressive waterfalls. Just before the thundering spray of the waterfalls, the boat moors on a rock, you enjoy the view of the river and take your photos. If you wish, you can hike along a steep path to the top of the waterfalls from where your guide will pick you up. Alternatively, you can return by boat.

Day 4: Murchison Falls National Park – Fort Portal – Kibale Forest

In the morning you leave the park and drive towards Fort Portal. The route runs along Lake Albert, one of the country’s great lakes. You will have the opportunity to take photos of Lake Albert at a viewpoint. You reach Fort Portal in the early afternoon. After a break in a nice café, you can take a stroll around the market. You will arrive at your lodge in the Kibale Forest in the late afternoon.

Day 5: Kibale Forest National Park, chimpanzee tracking – Queen Elisabeth National Park

Today you will visit the chimpanzees in the rainforest. Follow the tracks of the primates in the jungle with an experienced guide. Soon, with a bit of luck, you will reach the first animals, observe their way of life and have the opportunity to take photos. You will be back at the lodge around midday, after lunch you will set off on your journey towards Queen Elisabeth National Park.

Day 6: Queen Elizabeth National Park, game drive and boat safari

Today there is a morning game drive in Queen Elisabeth National Park. The park offers everything that makes up the African animal world.  A large number of lions, buffaloes, hyenas and also the Kobe antelope, which is native to Uganda, live here. Your driver knows the best places and will show you the animals and answer your questions. After lunch, you will go on a boat safari on the  Kazinga Canal, which  connects the two lakes, Lake Edward and Lake George. Crocodiles and hippos live in the canal, while buffalo, elephants and impressive birdlife can be found on its banks.

Day 7: Queen Elisabeth NP – Batwa visit – Bwindi NP

Today we continue in the direction of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Around midday we arrive at the Ntugwe River, which is famous for its abundance of hippos. The Batwa are looking forward to our visit, where they will demonstrate their traditional hunting techniques and show us how they extract honey and medicinal plants. We listen to their songs and the stories about their tragic past. We reach our lodge in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in the evening.

Day 8: Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, gorilla tracking

Today you have the opportunity to go gorilla tracking. Here in Bwindi Impenatrable NP, the gorillas and chimpanzees have their common habitat – nowhere else will you find both primate species so close together. After a briefing by the rangers at the entrance to the national park, you start your hike in the rainforest. To begin with, you will walk with your guide and a ranger on a well-maintained hiking trail slightly uphill into the park. On the way, the guide will answer your questions about the impressive vegetation of the rainforest and the way of life of the primates. Depending on the location of “your” gorilla family, you then head off the beaten track and cross-country through the bush. The ranger leads the way, you follow him and then suddenly you are standing in front of the gorilla family. You have 1 hour to observe and photograph the animals before heading back. Alternatively, you have the option of going on a hike in the surrounding area or visiting a Batwa community. But you will certainly regret it if you don’t visit the gorillas.

After breakfast, we continue to Lake Mburo National Park.  Numerous rocks and hills alternate with small valleys. Once in the park, you will go on a game drive. Here you will find zebras and antelopes together with the impressive Ankole cattle.
