Our 15 Days Safari in Uganda is intended for people who have the opportunity to go about and learn more about the country, which is also known as the Pearl of Africa. You can hike chimps in Budongo Forest, Kyambura Gorge in Queen Elizabeth National Park, and Kibale Forest National Park on the 15 Days Safari in Uganda. Additionally, it gives you the opportunity to go on boat tours and wildlife drives in three national parks in savannahs. Enjoy two boat excursions and a hot air balloon trip in the national parks of Murchison Falls, Queen Elizabeth, Lake Mburo, and Lake Bunyonyi, followed by a canoe paddle in the latter park. While on our 15 Days Safari in Uganda, these three savannah national parks offer the best game drives with opportunities to see thousands of antelopes, hippos, elephants, buffaloes, lions, leopards, and so much more. We also include several village and community walks that will take you to the nearby villages to learn more about the locals and their cultures.


15 Days Safari in Uganda

Day 1: Transfer to Budongo Forest

Our driver guides will give you a briefing about your 15 Days Safari in Uganda before you set out on your drive to Murchison Falls. En route, you’ll stop at the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary to look for endangered white and black rhinos that are being restocked there. Then, you’ll proceed to Masindi for lunch before travelling to the Budongo Forest, which is located in the Murchison Falls National Park Conservation area. Spend the night at Budongo Eco Lodge and have dinner there.

Day 2: Budongo Chimpanzee Trekking

Start your day with breakfast, proceed to the forest headquarters for a briefing on the Dos and Don’ts of chimpanzee trekking, and then begin your monkey walk in the Budongo Forest under the guidance of knowledgeable ranger guides. You will see other primates, birds, and many plant species on your walk, and once you are in close proximity to a community or party of habituated chimpanzees, you will be given an hour to observe them and take pictures before returning to your lodge for lunch.
After lunch, your driver will take you to the top of the Falls to see the water squeeze through a 7-meter-wide chasm before crashing downwards. Then, you’ll return to your lodging to unwind and get ready for the following day.

Day 3: Morning Game Drive – Afternoon Boat Cruise

After starting your day with a cup of coffee, your driver guide and game ranger will pick you up for a morning game drive where you will have the chance to see several antelopes, hippos, buffaloes, giraffes, buffaloes, and with any luck, big cats like leopards and lions. You will then return to the lodge for lunch. You will take pleasure in the boat ride to the falls’ base in the afternoon. Many herds of buffalo, crocodiles, hippos, water bird species, and other wild creatures congregate near the River Nile to drink water as you go. Continue upstream to the foot of the falls to see how the water is forced through a 7-meter-wide canyon before returning to the resort via car.

Day 4: Hot Air Balloon Ride – Nile Delta Cruise

Your driving guide will pick you up after an early breakfast to begin your hot air balloon safari on the Para side of Murchison Falls National Park. If you are staying along the southern bank of the River Nile, everyone will meet up at Para Lodge to begin your trek to the launch site of your balloon. You will be driven to the location where your hot air balloon safari will begin, together with the pilots and the rest of the team. You will be given the option of a cup of tea or coffee as the Balloon is put together. The pilot will then board the hot air balloon, give you a briefing, and launch your expedition. The entire process of touring Murchison Falls National Park might take up to an hour. Following the landing, certificates will be given out, and those who purchased a complete hot air balloon package will be treated to a full bush breakfast. Transfer to your lodge where you may unwind, eat lunch, and take a boat ride to the Albert delta in the afternoon where there is a lot going on. Your prospects of viewing the uncommon shoebill stock as well as elephants, buffaloes, and hippos crossing as well as crocodiles are all dependent on your luck.

Day 5: Transfer to Kibale National Park

After breakfast, you will go off on a lengthier trip to Kibale National Park, stopping sometimes for lunch and observing various bird species along the route.

Day 6: Chimpanzee Tracking – Bigodi Wetland Tour

After breakfast, you’ll be driven to the Kibale National Park’s administrative centre in Kanyachu, where you’ll meet up with the other trekkers for an orientation and eventual chimpanzee trekking. In Kibale Forest National Park, your game ranger guide will lead you on a guided primate walk. In this forest, visitors get the chance to go to one of the chimpanzees’ habituated groups or parts and spend an hour there watching and taking pictures. Along with forest birds, Kibale National Park is home to another 13 species of primates. You will drive to Bigodi Village for a wetland walk after your chimpanzee hike, which is intended to help the neighbourhood living close to Kibale Forest National Park.

Day 7: Transfer to Queen Elizabeth National Park

You will start your approximately three-hour trip to Queen Elizabeth National Park after breakfast. You will get the chance to go through tiny villages, take in a number of the Mountain Rwenzori’s foothills, view a number of the Rwenzori mountain ranges’ minor rivers, and cross the equator at Kikorongo. Check in at Bush Lodge and unwind before heading out on a late-afternoon wildlife drive in Mweya. This region of Queen Elizabeth National Park is home to elephants, lions, leopards, warthogs, antelopes, buffaloes, and many other wild creatures.

Day 8: Game Drive – Boat Cruise on Kazinga Channel

After a cup of tea in the morning, you will return to Kasenyi Plains for a game drive to make up for everything you might have missed on your first game drive. You will have the opportunity to see the big cats searching for their food during this early morning game drive, which increases your chances of seeing lions or leopards. Other mammals you may see on this game drive include buffalo, hippos, several types of antelope, and many others. Lunch at the lodge should be taken. One of the attractions of Queen Elizabeth National Park is a two-hour boat tour on Kazinga Channel in the afternoon, which you may take by driving straight to Mweya jetty.

Day 9: Chimpanzee Tracking in Kyambura Gorge – Katwe Salt Mines Tour

You will be taken to Kyambura Gorge after breakfast, where you will meet up with the other trekkers for a briefing before beginning your chimpanzee walk in the canyon. Your game ranger guide will assist you in recognising the many plants and animals that call this canyon home, and once you locate a group of chimps, you will be permitted to spend an hour photographing them. After the hike, return to the resort for lunch and some downtime.

You will go to the Lake Katwe salt mines in the afternoon. The local population mines and obtains salt from Lake Katwe, an explosive container endowed with salt. You will be given a tour of the salt mines by a member of the local community who will explain how salt is extracted, the difficulties encountered, and the opportunities present. One of the current instances supporting Queen Elizabeth as one of the conservation zones in the globe where people and animals can coexist peacefully and responsibly is the Lake Katwe salt extraction project.

Day 10: Transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

You will drive to the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park in the Kabale area of southwest Uganda after breakfast. Nearly half of the critically endangered mountain gorillas in the world live in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, which is also the only national park where mountain gorillas and wild chimpanzees coexist. You will pass through undulating hills with terraced gardens of Irish potatoes and a Kayonza tea plantation on your way to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Your late afternoon arrival will allow you to have dinner and remain the night.

Day 11: Gorilla Trekking – Village Visit

You will be brought to the Park headquarters after breakfast for a training on the dos and don’ts while interacting with gorillas. You will then be escorted to the starting location of the gorilla family you have been assigned to in order to begin your journey through the forbidding Bwindi Forest. Depending on the location of the mountain gorillas, this trip might take anything from 30 minutes to three quarters of a day. As a result, gorilla trekking can be physically demanding and as such, some level of fitness is needed. The experience will be worthwhile after you locate the gorillas, and you will be given an hour to observe and take pictures.

Returning to the park’s main office, you will get a certificate commending you for your efforts in preserving the critically endangered mountain gorillas. After unwinding at the lodge, go on a village stroll to discover more about the locals who live close to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.

Day 12: Transfer to Lake Bunyonyi

In the Kabale District, take a drive from Bwindi Impenetrable National Park to Lake Bunyonyi. One of the three Lava Damned Lakes, Lake Bunyonyi was created when lava pouring from one of the volcanoes blocked a river channel, forcing water to flow back and filling the void to form the lake. Due to the large number of little birds in this region, the term “bunyonyi” means “small birds” locally. According to reports, Lake Bunyonyi is the second-deepest lake in East Africa and the deepest lake in Uganda. One of the finest places to unwind after a gorilla climb is Lake Bunyonyi, which attracts tourists for its beauty.

Day 13: Canoeing or Hiking near Lake Bunyonyi

After breakfast, you are free to take in the beauty of the lake and the hills that surround it as you take a canoe ride on the lake to explore various islands with fascinating histories. You also have the chance to visit the Punishment Island, where girls who would bear children through legal traditional marriage were dumped and left to perish. You will without a doubt appreciate this full-day activity.

Day 14: Transfer to Lake Mburo National Park

Start your day with breakfast and then drive to Lake Mburo National Park, where you will arrive around lunchtime. Later, you will go on a boat cruise where you can see a variety of plants, animals, and birds up close, including the rare shoebill, crested crane, pelicans, fish eagle, heron, and many other water birds. You’ll start an evening game drive later in the day. Impalas, Giraffes, Zebras, and many more creatures may be seen in Lake Mburo National Park.

Day 15: Early Morning Game Drive – Departure

After breakfast, take a game drive across the park early in the morning. Olive Baboons, Vervet Monkeys, Yellow-Winged Bats, Side Striped Jackals, Dwarf and Banded Mongooses, Common Zebras, Hippopotamuses, Common Warthogs, Buffalo, Bushbucks, Oribi, Deffassa Waterbucks, Bohor Reedbucks, and many more species will be seen. Then set off for your trip to the Kampala/Entebbe International Airport, stopping along the way at the Igongo Cultural Centre to learn more about the ethnic groups in western Uganda’s traditions and to take photographs near the Equator.
