Day 2: Kampala – Lake Mburo National Park

After a hearty breakfast, you leave Kampala and drive on well-maintained roads towards Lake Mburo National Park. In the capital, you will experience the hustle and bustle of traders on the roadside and in the small stores. You will find everything the locals need for their daily needs, fruit, fish and much more. Outside the city, it becomes quieter and ever greener. After a stop at the Equator, you will reach your lodge at Lake Mburo National Park in the afternoon.

Day 3: Activities in Lake Mburo National Park

Today you set off on your first game drive. In Lake Mburo NP, the Ankole cattle with their horns are particularly striking. Zebras, impalas and reedbucks can often be seen outside the park boundaries. The lake after which the park is named is home to crocodiles, hippos and a large number of rare birds. Here in Lake Mburo National Park it is permitted to go on a foot safari. Together with an experienced ranger, you go on an exploration tour. The guide will show you the footprints and tell you which animal was on the move here.

Steep slopes characterize the landscape and the view of Lake Bunyonyi and the Virunga volcanoes in the background will inspire you. In the afternoon you reach your lodge at Bwindi NP.

Day 5: 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.
