The trip Primates And Wildlife Of Uganda starts and ends in Entebbe. It is a trekking trip that takes 7 days taking you through Entebbe, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Kibale Forest National Park in Uganda. Primates And Wildlife Of Uganda is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Track mountain gorillas and chimps in the wild, and enjoy game viewing and bird watching in Queen Elizabeth National Park. Perfectly crafted for animal lovers with hikes into the natural habitats of the Mountain Gorilla and chimpanzees of Uganda, as well as a wide variety of other wildlife species, the highlights in this superb itinerary are numerous. Tracking the mountain gorillas in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park is an unequalled jungle trek experience culminating in the thrill of standing within metres of a family, often including the imposing male silverback. Uganda is also known for its colourful culture, lush forests, beautiful lakes and some of the best bird watching in Africa with over 1000 different species. We will enjoy game viewing in the scenic savannah plains of Queen Elizabeth National Park famous for its tree-climbing lions, and cruise along the tropical Kazinga Channel teeming with vast numbers of hippos and endemic birdlife. This trip showcases the diverse ecosystems of Uganda where East meets West, and is the perfect addition to any Africa itinerary.

“If Gorilla trekking is on your bucket list (as it was on mine), this is the trip for you. Added bonus, is the chimp trekking and game viewing by vehicle and by boat. The accommodations were fantastic and the food was really good and very plentiful. The Ugandan people were very friendly and the service we received surpassed expectations.”

“Another fantastic trip provided by World Expeditions. With the help of Pawan, we extended our tour and were very pleased with the outcome. The diversity of the landscape and animals were amazing. The chimpanzee and gorilla treks were experiences of a lifetime. We were so well catered for and our driver, Nelson, was extremely knowledgeable and he kept us safe and well at all times. The trip was exciting from start to finish, great accommodation and food and above all the treks were fantastic!”

“This trip was one of the best we have done. Our guide, Eric, was very knowledgeable, having undertaken gorilla habituation himself. We were very pleased with the variety of wildlife experiences - gorillas tracking, chimp tracking, game drives - compared to other offerings which are gorillas only. The standard of accommodation was above our expectations and we especially loved the Birds Nest Lodge at Lake Bunyonyi and the Kasenyi Safari Camp. Uganda itself is a country worth seeing; spectacular landscapes of steep hills of vibrant green jungles and tea plantations, offset against deep red soil and blue skies. You will not regret booking this trip.”
