7 Days Uganda Safari

7 Days Uganda Safari : Travelers have the chance to partake in a number of activities in Uganda with the 7 Days Uganda Safari, including chimpanzee tracking, gorilla trekking, wildlife viewing, a launch ride down the Kazinga channel, birding, and a visit to the Batwa pygmies. For those who love the outdoors and the wildlife of Uganda, this is a fantastic itinerary. You will have the chance to see the national parks of Queen Elizabeth, Kibale, and Bwindi Impenetrable. The itinerary can be customized such that it begins in Kigali, Rwanda, instead of Kampala or Entebbe, Uganda.

First, a halt is made in Kibale National Park to start the tour. Kibale Forest is frequently referred to as the “primate’s capital of the world” because to the 13 different kinds of primates that live there. There isn’t a finer site to see primates than here. It would rank among the most popular African wildlife conservation locations if it housed gorillas. The Bigodi Wetlands reserve is another stop on the safari in Kibale, where you can go bird watching and see more primates. The travel to Queen Elizabeth National Park continues from Kibale. It is Uganda’s most popular and most picturesque park by nature.

Unlike the Serengeti, Queen Elizabeth enjoys plentiful rain for much of the year. Crater lakes, gorges, forests, and many other natural features that you will see while there were created by earth movements and volcanic eruptions. Four of the big five mammals, including the unique tree climbing lions in Ishasha, are found in Queen Elizabeth. You will be transported to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park from Queen Elizabeth. Bwindi is the top location for gorilla trekking and a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its tremendous biodiversity. Beyond gorillas, Bwindi is also home to chimpanzees, lesser primates, duikers, leopards, birds, forest mammals, and a variety of other animals. You can go on nature excursions and visit the Batwa pygmies while in Bwindi to track gorillas.

The majority of the locations that make Uganda such a stunning country to visit will have been seen by the end of your 7-day Uganda wildlife safari. Check out our 6 day Uganda safari trip or the 5 day Uganda wildlife tour package if you’re looking for a shorter safari. You might wish to think about our 9-day Uganda Wildlife Safari package if you desire a lengthier safari. A 8-day Uganda tour package is also available.

Day 1: Transfer to Kibale National Park – Tour Fort Portal

You will be picked up from your hotel very early in the morning by a driver from Discover Africa Safaris Tours to begin the trip to Kibale National Park. Get up early, eat breakfast, and then watch for them. Although the 7-day Uganda wildlife safari trip to Kibale National Park is exhausting, it will be rewarded with breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside, national parks, forests, rivers, lakes, sizable plantations, the intriguing Ankole cattle, trading hubs, cities, and districts, as well as the perpetually cheerful peasant. You will have lunch when you get to Fort Portal City, then have a tour of this little but stunning town. The current center of tourism in Uganda is Fort Portal. Along with housing the Toro Kingdom’s administrative center, it is situated in a region with year-round pleasant weather and stunning scenery. The town is perhaps the nicest place to reside in Uganda because of the calm in the city.

Day 2: Chimpanzee tracking and Bigodi Swamp walk

You will be driven to the Kibale National Park headquarters following an early-morning breakfast for a briefing on chimpanzee trekking. The briefing, which is conducted by the Park Guides, covers the park’s regulations for tracking chimpanzees as well as what to expect. The Park Guides will take you into the forest to find the chimpanzees after the briefing. Trekking with chimpanzees is very different from trekking with gorillas. Compared to gorillas, chimpanzees spend more time perched on trees. Additionally, their gatherings are louder and more dramatic. Even before approaching them, it is easy to hear their cries from a mile away. They would have noticed your group by the time you arrive. Chimpanzee tracking typically takes three to five hours. You only have one hour to see them during a seven-day safari in Uganda. Take as many images as you can at this period.

You will be taken back to the park headquarters after spending an hour with the chimpanzees, where the business driver will be waiting for you. You will be taken by the driver to the hotel for lunch and a nap. The driver will take you to the Bigodi wetlands sanctuary later in the afternoon for a nature walk and birding. One of the best places for birdwatching in Uganda is the Bigodi marsh. Small monkeys, butterflies, and many more creatures can be seen.

Day 3: Head for Queen Elizabeth National Park – Game drive in Ishasha – Visit Kyambura Gorge

Uganda Wildlife Tour for 7 DaysYou’ll get up early, eat a big breakfast, and then check out. You will be picked up by our guide to begin the two-hour drive through the Ishasha region of the park to Queen Elizabeth National Park. Lions that can scale trees are a common sight in the Ishasha region. A couple of these lions can also be seen in Tanzania’s Lake Manyara and South Africa’s Kruger National Park. According to researchers, lions have evolved to climb trees to avoid bug stings. They use their perch above trees to keep an eye on their prey’s movements. Although you may see them on downed trees, lions prefer the robust acacia and fig trees.

7-day safari in UgandaAfter Ishasha, the vehicle will carry on to your hotel where you can check in and refuel before the next activity. A trip through nature at the Kyambura Gorge is the next activity. One of Uganda’s most breathtaking natural treasures is the Kyambura Gorge. In the gorge’s underground forest, which also supports chimpanzees, baboons, monkeys, hippos, and birds, are various primates. Additionally, you’ll see unusual animals, trees, and plants that have adapted to thrive in the gorge. The guide will transport you back to the lodge after you have visited the Kyambura gorge.

Get up early, eat breakfast, and then wait for the driver to take you on a day that will be extremely memorable. To watch how the locals mine salt, the driver will take you to Lake Katwe. It’s a good idea to talk to the locals during this period to learn how the salt benefits them and their ancestors. After that, you’ll go on a nature hike through the Maramagambo forest, where you’ll see the bat caves and the pythons that feed on them from a secret platform. In addition to witnessing pythons and bats, there is a good chance of seeing red-tailed monkeys, various primates, unharmed chimpanzees, pygmy antelopes, and more. The crater lakes Nyamasingiri and Kyasanduka will also be visible. You will set off for Bwindi national park and your new accommodation later in the afternoon.

Day 6: Mountain Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi Forest – Visit to the Batwa Pygmies

On the 6th day of your 7 Days Uganda Safari , As you wait for the driver to bring you up, get up early and order breakfast. By 7:00am, the driver will transport you to the park headquarters for a briefing. You will meet other tourists and the Rangers who will take you to the forest during this crucial briefing. The most crucial issues covered in the briefing are how to act near gorillas, what to expect, and what to bring with you when tracking gorillas. Based on your age and general fitness, a gorilla family will be allocated to you. This is due to the fact that certain gorilla groups are farther into the jungle, requiring more hours of trekking. You can get assistance from porters if you have excess luggage. You will follow the park rangers into the bush as they search for primates. It takes two to six hours to go gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Take as many pictures of them as you can once you find them because you only have an hour with them. Mountain gorilla viewing can be fascinating. You can watch them play, eat, groom, or take a nap. Some may approach you out of curiosity, but keep your cool and follow the park guides’ advice at all times.

You will return to the starting site, where our Guide will be waiting for you, after spending an hour watching the mountain gorillas. Remember to pick up your completion certificate before returning to the Batwa Visit on a Uganda Safari Lodge for lunch and rest. The driver will take you to the Batwa pygmy village after you’ve had a chance to rest. The Batwa lived in Bwindi Forest before being driven out by the government. They were to be removed from the park and sent somewhere, the administration decided. The efforts to assist the Batwa in adjusting to life outside of the forest, despite the initiation of various projects, have not been successful. Due of their inability to compete with nearby tribes or adjust to life outside of the forest, the Batwa continue to live in extreme poverty. You will discover a lot about their culture and the difficulties they encounter after leading a life of plenty in the forest while you are with them. Expect the tribesmen to perform traditional dances and other acts.

Day 7: Transfer back to Kampala for departure

The last day of the safari, so get up whenever you want, keeping in mind when you have to leave. The driver will take a different route, stopping for lunch at the Igongo Cultural Centre in Mbarara and for pictures near the Equator crossing in Kayabwe. To see how enormous drums were made, stop by the Buganda Royal drum makers if you have time. We really hope that you had a pleasant stay in Uganda. You will be dropped off by the driver to either your hotel or the Entebbe airport.
