Price from: £3279pp
Day 1 Entebbe: On arrival you will be transferred to your hotel.
Day 2 Entebbe/Kibale National Park: During today’s journey you will be rewarded with glimpses of local life as you pass small villages and local markets. Stop in Fort Portal, an area known for its tea plantations, before reaching the dense forest of Kibale.
Day 3 Kibale National Park/Queen Elizabeth National Park: This morning, the forest beckons for a sensational chimpanzee tracking experience. Upon sighting the primates, spend an unforgettable hour with them as they feed, play, groom and take care of their young. After lunch, head to Queen Elizabeth National Park where on arrival you set off on a game drive in the scenic reserve which incorporates a huge range of habitat.
Day 4 Queen Elizabeth National Park: Early morning game drive in search of lion, elephant, buffalo and other wild animals. This afternoon take a scenic cruise along the Kazinga Channel, keeping your eyes peeled for large schools of hippo, Nile crocodile, wallowing buffaloes, elephants and multitudes of birds.
Day 5 Queen Elizabeth National Park/Bwindi: Travel through Ishasha en route to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, the home of the endangered mountain gorillas.
Day 6 Bwindi: Very early start as you set off on your trek in search of mountain gorillas. The trek with an experienced ranger will take between 2-8 hours in steep and sometimes muddy conditions and does require a degree of fitness. You will be more than compensated for this effort when experiencing the thrill of a close encounter with giant mountain gorillas. Spend an hour with them, watching as they go about their daily life.
