Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive in Entebbe Airport and Transfer to Kibale Forest NP

Stop At: Kibale National Park, Kibale National Park, Western Region
Hopefully, your flight is scheduled for an early (not past noon) landing in Entebbe. Your safari will start from the Entebbe International Airport where you will be received by the assigned driver/guide and depart for Kibale Forest NP. The park is popular for its primate’s population like the chimpanzees, colobus monkeys and red tailed monkeys. On your chimpanzee trails, these are regularly seen swinging in the forest trees and others feeding on the wild fruits. You will arrive in the late afternoon (evening) and just check into your accommodation, relax and later enjoy your dinner plus the overnight stay (awaiting the next day’s activity).
Duration: 6 hours

Meals included:
• Lunch
• Dinner
Accommodation included: Overnight at Isunga Lodge

Day 2: ChimpS tracking Kibale Forest and Transfer to Queen Elizabeth NP

Stop At: Kibale National Park, Kibale National Park, Western Region
Have breakfast and head to the rangers’ point where you will receive some briefing on the dos and don’ts during chimp trekking. Thereafter, you will proceed to trek the chimps in the Kibale Forest. An experienced ranger guide will take you chimp tracking and you will be marveled by the sights of primates here. Once you locate the chimpanzees, you will have a full hour with them.
You will return to the lodge for lunch after which you will head out for Queen Elizabeth National Park. You will arrive in time for your dinner and overnight at the booked accommodation.
Duration: 6 hours

• Breakfast
• Lunch

Return to your accommodation for some rest time and then lunch.
In the afternoon you will go for a 2-hour boat trip on the Kazinga Channel which connects Lakes: George and Edward and you will surely be fascinated by the concentrations of giant hippos, elephants and crocodiles among others. You will also see many varieties of birds at the water shores. You will have dinner and overnight at your accommodation.
Duration: 6 hours

Meals included:
• Breakfast
• Lunch
• Dinner

Day 4: Transfer to Bwindi with en route game drive in Ishasha area

Stop At: Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Western Region
Have breakfast then set off for Bwindi Impenetrable NP through the Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park [famously known for its resident tree-climbing lions]. The chance of spotting these lions is about 70% though sometimes they are really hard to spot (most especially when they’re down in the grassland looking for prey). Hoping you get the chance to spot them, the sight will be spectacular!
Continue to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Bwindi is a big habitat for mountain gorillas in Uganda, harboring an estimated 400 mountain gorillas – roughly half of the world’s population, including several habituated groups which can be tracked. With a strenuous day ahead, you will do less on arrival but just check in your accommodation, relax as you prepare for the Bwindi gorilla trekking experience the next day.
Duration: 4 hours

Meals included:
• Breakfast
• Lunch
• Dinner
• Dinner
Accommodation included: Overnight at Bwindi View Lodge

Day 5: Go gorilla trekking Bwindi and later transfer to Lake Bunyonyi for relaxation

Stop At: Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Buhoma, Uganda
After an early breakfast and a briefing by a ranger guide, you will enter the gorilla sanctuary for your adventure. The beauty of this rain forest is spectacular! The area offers dramatic steeply forested landscape and is incredibly dense, but crisscrossed by numerous animal trails allowing access to tourists. The time taken and the terrain vary with the movements of these great primates. Once you locate a gorilla group, you will be allowed an hour in their presence. The thrill of spending time observing these gentle and endangered giants is an awesome, exciting experience to be long savored.

Return to your lodge. Have your lunch and thereafter check out for a transfer to Lake Bunyonyi. Lake Bunyonyi is framed by lush, green-terraced hills that reach a height of (2,200 – 2,478m) but it’s the 29 islands of various shapes and sizes scattered across the water that make it most magical — you could admire them all day.
Duration: 6 hours

Meals included:
• Breakfast
• Lunch
• Dinner
Accommodation included: Overnight at Bunyonyi View Lodge

Day 6: Depart Bunyonyi for your outbound flight in Entebbe Airport

Stop At: Entebbe, Entebbe, Central Region

Expect en route stopovers in Mbarara town for lunch and the Uganda Equator line mark in Kayabwe for some memorable photos and maybe buying some art pieces of interest. Proceed with the journey arriving late afternoon/evening for drop off at the airport.
