5 Days Uganda Safari Adventure

Day 1: Transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

Our driving guide will pick you up from your hotel or other residence to begin the 5 Days Uganda Safari Adventure. He will then give you a briefing on the five-day safari. After stopping near the equator for photographs and scientific experiments, travel to Mbarara for lunch at the Agip Motel before continuing to Bwindi National Park, which is home to mountain gorillas. 630 mountain gorillas, or almost half of the remaining population, are thought to reside in Bwindi National Park. The lengthy, but pleasurable, drive. Continue to Buhoma in the south and take in terraced slopes of the Kigezi Highlands, sometimes known as the Switzerland of Africa. Have dinner and stay overnight at Buhoma Lodge, Gorilla Havens Lodge, Trekkers Tavern Lodge, Mahogany Springs.

Day 2: Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi Forest

Start your day off well with a hearty breakfast and a packed lunch, followed by a transfer to the starting point for your driver’s briefing with your guide. After being assigned a guide to track gorillas with, you will go out on your excursion. The length of the journey and the terrain change depending on how these gentle giants move (1–8 hours). The excitement of a face-to-face encounter lessens the agony of an occasionally difficult and long journey. Each encounter is unique and has its own benefits, but you are sure to appreciate getting a close-up look of adults eating, grooming, and relaxing while the young playfully romp and swing from vines.

You have the option of staying at the lodge to unwind at night or going for a stroll in the Batwa neighbourhood. You will get the opportunity to talk to these folks, learn about their way of life, and see them perform their folk music and dances. Have dinner and stay overnight at Buhoma Lodge, Gorilla Havens Lodge, Trekkers Tavern Lodge, Mahogany Springs.

Day 3: Transfer to Queen Elizabeth National Park

Head to Ishasha Sector after an early breakfast. This southern sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park, one of Uganda’s most spectacular assets, has been named a Biosphere Reserve for Humanity under the auspices of UNESCO. It is located on the western side of the Great Rift Valley escarpment and has boundaries with Lake George, Lake Edward, and Kazinga Channel. Driving through the Ishasha area while looking for lions to climb is followed by lodge check-in. Take a 2-hour boat tour on the Kazinga Channel after lunch. This river connects Lakes Edward and George, and the banks are lined with hippos, buffalo, and elephants. Hippos that are grazing, elephants, lions, spotted hyenas, leopards, Bushbuck, Waterbuck, striped jackal, and, of course, multiple warthogs are all likely to be encountered. Short evening game drive will be taken following the launch cruise. Have dinner and stay overnight at Mweya Safari Lodge or Enganzi Lodge or Bush Lodge or Katara Lodge.

Day 4: Chimpanzee Tracking in Kyambura Gorge

You will leave with your tracking equipment after breakfast to go chimpanzee tracking in Queen Elizabeth National Park’s Kyambura Gorge. During the tracking, you will descend a valley and see a vibrant, mature tropical forest below sea level that is home to chimpanzee populations. Finding the chimps requires a tough hike up the gorge’s steep slopes, but once you do, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience as you can see them rolling around on tree branches and hearing their pant-hooting noises. You may also see the black and white colobus monkeys and the olive baboons.

After returning to the resort for lunch, go on a game drive in the evening to look for wildlife. At the delta, you could encounter buffalo, waterbucks, leopards, elephants, giraffes, Jackson’s heart creatures, oribis, warthogs, and other species. Have dinner and stay overnight at Mweya Safari Lodge or Enganzi Lodge or Bush Lodge or Katara Lodge.

Day 5: Return to Kampala – Departure

Drive briefly along the wildlife trails after breakfast as you leave the park to start the trip back to Kampala. On the way, stop at Mbarara for lunch and the Igongo Cultural Centre, which is the origin of Ankole tradition. Retract from that and travel on to Kampala, where you may rest up before going to the airport to catch your flight home.
