The trip "Chimps & Gorillas Of Uganda" starts and ends in Entebbe. It is a wildlife trip that takes 11 days taking you through Kibale Forest National Park, Queen Elizabeth National Park, Bigodi and 4 other destinations in Uganda. "Chimps & Gorillas Of Uganda" is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Uganda is renowned for its abundant wildlife. With landscapes ranging from savannah to lush forests, the animal count is high: more than 300 mammal species and more than 1,000 bird types. This trip is a true adventure into the heart of Africa. Kibale Forest is possibly the best place in the world to track chimpanzees while Queen Elizabeth National Park is home to hippos, elephants, buffalo, leopards and elusive tree-climbing lions, plus a huge variety of birds. Continuing on our journey, we reach Bwindi where we have the option of tracking the gentle giants of the forests, mountain gorillas.

Aldo Kane Collection: A hand-selected range of adventures by our Brand Ambassador:"Having been lucky enough in my lifetime to catch glimpses of both chimps and gorillas in their natural habitats, I would highly recommend this extraordinary experience. There's nothing quite like spotting a signature species in the wild and spending an hour with these rare creatures in the misty peaks of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is nothing short of incredible."
