  • Go out on gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
  • See the Amabere ga Nyina Mwiru caves & New Tooro Kingdom Palace
  • Track chimpanzees in Kibale Forest National Park
  • Enjoy boat safari in Queen Elizabeth National Park
This exciting, eight-day Uganda trip will take you to some of the most popular national parks in the country and bring you face to face with a variety of wildlife, birds and primates, including the majestic gorillas found in the mist-covered hills of Bwindi.

Your driver will pick you up at Entebbe International Airport and transfer you to the hotel in Kampala on arrival. Drive to Kibale Forest National Park on the second day of the tour. At Kibale, you will get an opportunity to track chimpanzees and, if you are lucky, see as many as 12 species of primates.

From here the journey continues to the historic Amabere Ga Nyina Mwiru caves as well as New Tooro Kingdom Palace. The next destination is Queen Elizabeth National Park, an excellent destination for those interested in animals like gazelles, elephants, lions and hippos.

Continue your journey to the southwestern part of Uganda, to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, famous for its resident gorilla population. Track mountain gorillas found in the national park with an experienced guide.

Please note that accommodation while in the national parks is on a full-board basis. In case you want to customize your accommodation, we can help you choose between safari lodges in budget, mid-range and luxury categories. For more details, please go through the itinerary below.

Meals
  • Dinner
Kibale Forest Camp
Leave Kampala for Kibale Forest National Park, with a stop-over for lunch in the friendly town of Fort Portal. The drive is incredibly scenic, passing through tea plantations and the lush green countryside which characterizes much of Uganda.

Kibale Forest National Park is home to at least 13 primate species including red-tailed monkeys, olive baboons, black and white colobus monkeys as well as blue monkeys. If you are lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of a meandering herd of elephants in this national park.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Kibale Forest Camp
Kibale Forest boasts the highest number of primate species in the world, including our delightful cousins, chimpanzees. There are approximately 5,000 chimpanzees left in the wild in Uganda, which makes this country the perfect place to spot them!

Our experienced ranger will take you to track chimpanzees in the morning or afternoon depending upon your choice and show you a variety of primate species found in its forest. We cannot, however, guarantee that you will see the chimpanzees, though (they are wild animals after all).

Hike through swamps and grassland, see the communities living in this remote area and enjoy beautiful scenery along the way.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Bush lodge
We will take you to the Amabere ga Nyina Mwiru caves in the morning. Please make sure you wear hiking boots during this trip. Enjoy your lunch at Fort Portal before heading out to see New Tooro Kingdom Palace. We will then transfer you to Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda’s second largest park that is located at the base of the majestic Rwenzori Mountain Range.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Bush lodge
Your game drive starts at 6.30 am after an early breakfast. See a variety of wildlife found in the national park, including elephants, buffalos, lions, waterbucks, leopards and warthogs among others.

Enjoy a boat trip along the Kazinga Channel after lunch. See hippos as well as a variety of other animals that come to the channel to drink or bathe. Drive back to your lodge after the boat safari is over.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Bunyonyi Overland Camp
Travel to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, located in the south-western part of Uganda, close to the borders with Rwanda and Congo. This journey will carry you through a beautiful part of the country often referred to as “the Switzerland of Africa.”

Enjoy great countryside scenery and amazing views of the Virunga Mountains. Stop at a local restaurant en-route to Bwindi for lunch. Check into your accommodation upon arrival.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Bunyonyi Overland Camp
Prepare yourself for an encounter with one of Bwindi’s gentle giants, the rare mountain gorilla. For most people this is the absolute highlight of their Uganda tour. Bwindi's forests boast both mountain gorillas and chimpanzees. In fact, this is the only national park in Africa to claim this title.

Additionally, this national park also hosts five other primate species, 113 mammal species, over 200 species of butterflies and 360 species of birds. You will be assigned one of the nine gorilla family groups that can tolerate the presence of humans for a brief period every day. The trek itself is an exciting journey through deep forests entwined with vines, bushes and bamboo.

En route, your guide will point out signs of previous gorilla activities, including dung, nests and chewed bamboo shoots. Once the gorillas have been located, your group will be allowed a maximum of one hour to observe them from up close.

Depending on the gorilla family assigned to you, it will be as little as two hours or more than eight hours before you return to your accommodation today.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
After breakfast, we will drive you back to your accommodation in Kampala or hotel in Entebbe with a stopover at the equator, the best place for your souvenir shopping. Accommodation for tonight is not included in the tour price but can be arranged with us at an additional cost. In case you want to leave for home today, we suggest that you buy tickets for a night flight.
