Our 6 Days Uganda Primate Tracking Safari is intended for people who like wildlife viewing, boat cruises along Kazinga Channel, and observing gorillas and chimpanzees in their natural habitat. Take advantage of the chance to go chimpanzee trekking in Kibale Forest National Park. You may also go on boat tours and wildlife drives in Queen Elizabeth National Park. The finest opportunities to see thousands of antelope, hippos, elephants, buffaloes, lions, and gorillas on a safari to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park in southwest Uganda are on boat rides on Kazinga Channel. You may have an incredible encounter with one of the 19 habituated mountain gorilla groups in the region that is home to more than 630 mountain gorillas. You will also get the chance to witness other primates, such as red-tailed monkeys, chimpanzees, baboons, and black and white colobus monkeys, in addition to the gorillas.


6 Days Uganda Primate Tracking Safari

Day 1: Transfer to Kibale Forest National Park

Have breakfast in the morning before leaving Kampala for the interesting trip through the dense rainforest of the Nile Delta and papyrus marshes to Kibale National Park, which is located under the Rwenzori Mountains. You will go to Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary in the afternoon, where you may embark on a guided tour of the swamp. You will get the chance to view a variety of plants and animals on your tour. View many birds, insects, and butterflies. Take a tour of the area surrounding Ndali Lodge’s crater. Any tea plantation along the way is also open to stops if you so want. Visit Kyaninga Lodge, Mountains of the Moon, or Kibale Forest Camp for dinner and a night’s stay.

Day 2: Chimpanzee Trekking – Transfer to Queen Elizabeth National Park

After an early breakfast, go to the Kanyanchu Tourist Centre, where the tourist activities start, and then proceed to the Kibale Forest to search for chimpanzees. The likelihood of seeing chimpanzees is above 90%, but there is no guarantee. You could spend more than four hours searching for chimpanzees before returning to your lodging for lunch and then making the approximately three-hour trip to Queen Elizabeth National Park. 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 Mweya Safari Lodge, Ihamba Safari Lodge or Elephant Plains Lodge for dinner and stay.

Day 3: Morning Game Drive – Afternoon Boat Cruise

After a cup of tea in the morning, you’ll head back to Kasenyi Plains for a game drive to catch up with some wildlife creatures. If you’re lucky, you’ll be able to see big cats hunting for prey, so your chances of seeing lions or leopards are slightly higher. Other mammals you might see on this game drive include buffaloes, hippos, various species of antelopes, and many others. Return to the lodge for lunch. Drive straight to Mweya jetty in the afternoon for a boat tour in Kazinga Channel. One of the delights of Queen Elizabeth National Park is this two-hour boat ride. It gives you the chance to see more than 300 of the 600 species of water birds that have been identified here as well as antelopes, crocodiles, elephants, buffaloes, and hippos. Visit Mweya Safari Lodge, Ihamba Safari Lodge, or Elephant Plains Lodge again to spend the night.

Day 4: 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. You’ll arrive in the late afternoon to have supper and spend the night at Buhoma Lodge, Mahogany Springs, or Trackers Safari Lodge.

Day 5: Gorilla Trekking Experience

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. Visit Buhoma Lodge, Haven Safari Lodge, or Buhoma Community Bandas for supper and overnight lodging.

Day 6: Return to Kampala – Departure

Following breakfast in the morning, you will be taken to Kampala/Entebbe. En route, you will stop at the Equator crossing for photos and a little experiment before continuing your trip to the airport in Kampala/Entebbe.
