You will receive a briefing from the knowledgeable ranger guide on what to expect and how to act in the forest.
After the briefing, you will begin the journey through the tropical forest in search of chimpanzees, which are the closest living cousins of humans. Once you’ve found them, you have one hour to spend with them.

Day 5: Game drive and Boat Safari in Queen Elizabeth national park
There are an enormous, unmatched number of wild species in Africa. Of all the protected areas in Africa, Queen Elizabeth National Park boasts the most biodiversity. The morning, when predators are on the prowl for prey and just before they retreat into hiding, is the optimum time to see wildlife. To maximize your chances of seeing the game, you’ll be driving a car with an opening roof. Take in the uncommon and exotic animals, such as the elephants, lions, leopards, buffaloes, and uganda kobs, among others.
Enjoy a launch cruise on Kazinga Channel in the afternoon as you head toward Lake Edward to see the various wild animals that visit its waters, those that reside there, and a wide variety of birds.
Day 6: Transfer to Ishasha sector for tree climbing Lions
The tree-climbing lions make Ishasha, in the southern portion of Queen Elizabeth National Park, famous. These predators enjoy climbing fig trees after meals to rest, experience the winds, and to keep an eye on their prey because of the tall savanna grass. You will go for the Ishasha area to see the lions, several bird species, and other creatures this morning after a late breakfast.
Day 7: Transfer to Bwindi Forest
After breakfast, depart for Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is home to half of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas.
If you weren’t able to see the lions the day before, you have the option of going on another game drive around the park to look for the amazing Ishasha tree climbing lions.
Day 8: Gorilla trekking in Uganda
Spending a day in the dense forest with the enormous, friendly mountain gorillas is the pinnacle of the safari experience in the “jungles of Africa.” An unforgettable experience is traveling through the dense, impenetrable jungle of Bwindi in search of gorillas. After receiving a briefing from the ranger guides, you will be divided into groups to search for various gorilla families.
Then, under the guidance of a ranger guide, you will stroll through the jungle in search of gorillas. Once you and your ranger guide have located the gorillas, spend an hour watching them before beginning your exit from the forest.
Day 9: Transfer to Lake Mburo national park
After the thrilling experience of seeing gorillas up close in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, your driving guide will pick you up after breakfast to begin the journey to the serene and lovely Lake Mburo National Park. Take pleasure in the Kigezi region’s winding roads with photo stops.
You have a choice of taking a boat tour on Lake Mburo or a guided nature walk or walking safari once you get to the park. You will return to your lodge to get the much-needed rest after this event.
Day 10: Depart to Kampala
After breakfast, your driving guide will pick you up for a little game drive before leaving the park. Today you return to Kampala by car. As you leave the park, you’ll make a pit stop at the Equator monument for lunch, gifts, and photos of both the northern and southern hemispheres.
