Day 2 Kibale Forest National Park/ Scenic drive to the park Today you drive to the Kibale Forest National Park. The impressive park is the dream of every primate fan. 80% of its area is covered with evergreen wet forests and lush deciduous forests. The rest of the park consists of swamps and grassland. Due to the high proportion of forest, more than 1,000 chimpanzees live here, of which a group of about 80 are accustomed to the presence of visitors. There are also some easily observed monkey species such as the Black and White and the Red Colobus Monkey, as well as the Red Tailed Monkey. With a little luck you may even find the rare forest elephants here. 2x Nights at Isunga Lodge, B/L/D (breakfast, lunch and dinner)
Day 3 Kibale Forest National Park . Optional: Chimpanzee Tracking, Bigodi Swamp Walk Today after breakfast you have the possibility to go on an exciting chimpanzee search. Kibale Forest inhabituates the largest number of primate species in the world, including our very peaceful relatives, the chimpanzees. Nowadays, there are about 4.950 wild chimpanzees in Uganda, which makes it a unique area of observations. During your guided forest walk you will learn a lot about the diverse flora and fauna in the park. In the afternoon you can take a walk in the Bigodi Swamp (approx. 2-3 hours). This tour takes you through pastures, small villages, tea plantations and other impressive landscapes where the locals will warmly welcome you by waving enthusiastically. It is normal to see up to three or four different types of monkeys on this hike, but the highlight of the tour certainly is spotting the Great Blue Turaco, an unbelievably beautiful bird! B/L/D

At noon you then say goodbye to the forest and drive a short distance to Queen Elizabeth National Park. Before you check into your new accommodation, go hunting for gazelles, warthogs, waterbucks, also lions, hippos, elephants and buffalos – but only with your camera! ☺ 2x Nights at Marafiki Safari Lodge, B/L/D
Day 5 Queen Elizabeth National Park/ Safari Optional: Kazinga Channel Boat Tour Start the day with another game drive through the national park. Keep your eyes open and the camera ready – the chance of meeting a group of lions resting in the sun after an eventful night is very big. In the afternoon you can choose to do a boat trip on the Kazinga Channel. This channel flows through the middle of the park and connects the lakes Edward and George. You will see more hippos and buffalos than you can imagine. Bathing elephants are also regular guests here. This boat safari could undoubtedly be another highlight of your tour. B/L/D
Day 6 Queen Elizabeth National Park/ Ishasha Sector with Tree Lions Another highlight awaits you today: Ishasha, located in the southern part of the park. This area is known for its tree-climbing lions, which are unique in Africa. The lions climb the trees to relax and escape the sun at the hottest time of day. You have a good chance of seeing the lions in the tops of African fig trees. This offers a unique opportunity for wonderful photo shoots. 1x Night at Enjojo Lodge, B/L/D
Day 7 Bwindi Impenetrable National Park/ Lake Mutanda Today after an early breakfast you will explore the park one last time and then your journey takes you to another breath-taking attraction – the home of the mountain gorillas. The “gentle giants” can be found in the southern part of the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. The roads are somewhat bumpy, but the many impressions through the wonderful landscape, past banana plantations, lakes and islands, with unique panoramic views, will certainly compensate you. You will also pass extensive hilly landscapes and tropical rainforests before the impressive Virunga volcanoes finally appear in front of you. 2x Nights at Chameleon Hill Lodge, B/L/D
Day 8 Bwindi Impenetrable National Park /Optional: Gorilla Tracking Prepare to meet Bwindi’s gentle giants: the rare mountain gorillas. For most visitors, this is the absolute highlight of their Uganda trip! The gorillas you will see today belong to a family that accepts the presence of humans. Your tour will be a very special and exciting one – along the wooded slopes, through winding vines, past bushes and bamboo plants before you finally see the gorillas. On the tour your ranger will show you traces of previous gorilla activities such as faeces, nests and nibbled bamboo shoots. You will learn a lot about the Ugandan giants and if it gets slippery, a ranger will lend you his hand. It is an emotional, touching and very impressive experience to face a gorilla face to face.
Day 9 Lake Mburo National Park/ Safari at Lake Mburo National Park After an extensive breakfast your journey continues into the Lake Mburo National Park. The National Park is one of the smallest parks in Uganda, but not to be underestimated.
