The tour Primates And Wildlife Of Uganda starts from and ends in Entebbe. It is a trekking tour that takes 7 days taking you through Entebbe in Uganda. Primates And Wildlife Of Uganda is a guided small group tour 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.”
On arrival at Entebbe International Airport in Uganda, you shall be welcomed by your guide and transferred to the group hotel for overnight.

Accommodation: Boma Guest House or similar

Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
After an early morning breakfast, you will undertake a chimp trek. Note: the chimp permits are subject to availability - there are two slots in either the early morning (when they are often up in the trees feeding and more active) or at mid morning (when they often come down to take a nap as it is cooler on the forest floor and therefore closer and more relaxed). Both of these viewing slots are rewarding and interesting.

Kibale’s 795 sq km National Park contains one of the most beautiful and varying tracts of tropical forest in the whole of Uganda. This is home to 13 species of primate including chimpanzees. The park’s highest point is at 1590m above sea level. After lunch we will proceed to Queen Elizabeth National Park, and enjoy a game drive on the way to our lodge. Named after Her Majesty's Queen Elizabeth of England, it is Uganda's most popular and scenic game reserve. It stretches from the crater-dotted foothills of the Rwenzori range in the north, along the shores of Lake Edward to the remote Ishasha River in the south, incorporating a wide variety of habitats that range from open savannah, wetlands, crater lakes and rainforest.

After an early breakfast, you will be taken to the Park Headquarters for a short briefing after which you will enter the forest and start your Gorilla trek (please note that a drive may be required to your trekking starting point). The trek can be anything from 2 hours to 6 hours or longer depending on the location of the Gorillas on the day. The terrain is rough, often over steep slopes covered with matted vegetation. You will be led by an experienced ranger who will tell you interesting facts about the flora and fauna and the lifestyle of the Gorillas. Be prepared for rain, mud and giant stinging nettles – long trousers, gloves and a waterproof jacket will help. The mountain gorillas have inspired travellers from all over the world to experience one of nature’s greatest interactions. Anyone who has witnessed the Mountain Gorillas of East Africa will strongly agree that it is a once in a lifetime experience that will never be forgotten. Afterwards we will drive to Lake Bunyonyi for overnight.
