This safari tour is available all year round and takes you through the best of Ugandan National Parks with an opportunity for a local immersion.

We begin with the highlight of the tour - Chimpanzee tracking or Chimpanzee Habituation experience in Kibale National Park, which is a once in a lifetime encounter to see these smart creatures up close in their natural habitat.

Game drive at Queen Elizabeth National Park comes next for wildlife and boat safari. Here, you will see a number of African wildlife such as lions, cheetahs, and elephants. We then proceed to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park for Gorilla tracking & Batwa experience.
Day 1 Arrival in Uganda & transfer to Kabale National park 8 hours Camping

Your guide will pick you up early in the morning and provide briefing on your upcoming safari.

We then proceed to a rich tropical forest in Uganda, Kibale National park. The park provides shelter to roughly around 70 mammal species including chimpanzees, as well as over 375 species of birds.

In the afternoon, we go for a walk at Bigodi Wetlands Sanctuary where you can see primate species, and reptiles among other interesting mammals. Bird lovers will enjoy sightings of over 200 bird species, set amid varieties of lush trees, shrubs and vines.

Day 2 Chimpanzee Tracking & Transfer to Semuliki Nat'l Park 8 hours Eco lodge

Tracking chimpanzees is a unique experience that makes Safari in Uganda at par with its neighboring East African countries. There is nothing more exotic than starring in a real African jungle adventure. You get the real Ugandan atmosphere as you move through the bushes and watch the Chimps swing through the steady branches.

If you can’t get enough, you may opt to do the habituation experience, which means you can spend the whole day with these amazing creatures.

In the afternoon, guests doing the Chimpanzee Tracking will continue to Semuliki National Park.

Day 3 Wildlife Game viewing & Hotsprings 8 hours Eco lodge

Today’s activity begins with a game drive where you will not only see a number of wildlife but also witness various species of birds native to Central Congo. Semuliki National Park is home to a number of exotic Central African wildlife and Batwa pygmy community. This provides a taste of Central Africa without having to leave Uganda.

After this, we go on a short walk and arrive to see the Sulphur hot springs in a hot mineral encrusted swamp. The Mumbuga erupting spring resembles a fountain with its 0.5m high perpetual spout, receiving its heat from the deep faults of East African Rift System.

Day 4 Game Drive & Boat Safari 8 hours Eco lodge

We will set out for a real Ugandan African adventure traversing through the bushes of Queen Elizabeth National Park. This park previously known in 1952 as Kazinga National Park was later on renamed to commemorate a visit by Queen Elizabeth II. Here you can see hippos, leopards, elephants, lions, and Chimpanzees among other 95 species of mammals and over 500 species of birds.

In the afternoon, we proceed to Mweya peninsula for a boat safari where you get to see crocodiles. Once again, feast your eyes with the wonderful wildlife before you while enjoying a relaxing cruise along the Kazinga channel.

Day 5 Bwindi Impenetrable National Park 8 hours Eco lodge

We depart for Bunyaruguru to enjoy wonderful views of lush tea, fruit plantations and the Rwenzori Mountains. We then continue to pass through Ugandan soil along Kagamba, Ntungamo, and Kabale, which is heralded as the Switzerland part of Africa with its hilly nature and breeze.

Finally, we will drive to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in southwestern Uganda where another amazing game drive adventure awaits.

Day 6 Gorilla Tracking, Batwa experience & Lake Bunyonyi 8 hours 3 Star Hotel at Entusi Resort

We begin today’s activity with the much-awaited Gorilla Trekking in either Mgahinga or Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, home to half of the Gorilla living in this world.

After Gorilla tracking, the Batwa experience in Karengerere follows where your guide will take you at the top of the hills to take in the great view of Lake Bunyonyi.

You can also visit the underprivileged children of Mwendo. They will welcome you with utmost hospitality via a short concert or traditional dance.

Day 7 Lake Bunyonyi Canoe Trekking & Village Walk 8 hours 3 Star Hotel at Entusi Reosrt

You will embark on a canoe trek to enjoy the serene ambiance and breathtaking views of Lake Bunyonyi, which has made this place synonymous to paradise.

You can also go on a village walk and immerse in the African community. Apart from its beauty, Lake Bunyonyi is also known as a place for little birds. In fact “Bunyonyi” translates to “place of many little birds”. Lake Bunyonyi encircles 29 islands of various shapes and sizes.
