You get the chance to go chimpanzee trekking in Kibale Forest National Park as part of the 7 Days Uganda Safari. Additionally, it gives you the opportunity to go on boat tours and wildlife game 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 country that is home to around 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 gorillas.


7 Days Uganda Safari

Day 1: Transfer to Kibale Forest National Park.

After breakfast, depart Kampala for the interesting journey through the Nile Delta’s dense forest and papyrus marshes to Kibale National Park, which is located under the Rwenzori Mountains. For an exceptional cultural experience, take a guided walk in the park’s crater lakes section in the afternoon.

Day 2: Kibale Chimpanzee Tracking Experience.

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. Over 90% of visitors see the chimpanzees, but it’s not a certainty. Visit the Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary after lunch to go 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 Kibale Guest House, Primate Lodge, or Kyaninga Lodge for dinner and a night’s stay.

Day 3: 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. With antelopes, buffaloes, warthogs, elephants, and several other wild creatures, including as lions and leopards, this region of Queen Elizabeth National Park is abundant with wildlife. After your game drive, return to the lodge for dinner and an overnight stay at Mweya Safari Lodge or Simba Safari Lodge.

Day 4: 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. 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. Return to the lodge for dinner and an overnight stay at Mweya Safari Lodge or Simba Safari Lodge.

Day 5: 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 will get there in the late afternoon to have dinner and spend the night at Buhoma Lodge, Mahogany Springs, or Trackers Safari Lodge.

Day 6: 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. Have dinner and spend the night at Buhoma Lodge, Mahogany Springs, or Trackers Safari Lodge.

Day 7: Return to Kampala – Departure

Your driver guide will deliver you in time to the airstrip Kihihi to catch your morning or afternoon flight back to Entebbe/Kampala before we set out on our journey to Kampala.
