7 Days Uganda Wildlife Safari Adventure

Discover the top attractions of Uganda on this 7-day safari, during which you will go on a chimpanzee tracking adventure in Kibale, go on a game viewing safari and boat cruise in Queen Elizabeth national park, and cap off your trip with an unforgettable gorilla trekking experience in the Bwindi impenetrable forest. 

Day 1: You will arrive in Kampala and be transferred to your hotel.

After you arrive at the international airport in Entebbe, our guide will be waiting to pick you up and take you to your hotel in Kampala, where you will have supper and stay the night.

Day 2: Kampala-Kibale National Park

After a leisurely early breakfast, you will be picked up by your guide and driven from Kampala to Kibale Forest via Fortportal while taking in the breathtaking scenery. Lunch will be provided while you are on the road. Upon your arrival at the park, travel onward and pay a visit to the breathtaking crater lakes region. While there, you will also have the opportunity to observe the terraced tea gardens. Eat dinner and stay the night in the hotel.

Day 3: Chimpanzee trekking in the Kibale forest

The driving guide will transfer you to the park head offices for a briefing after breakfast on the early morning. Then, you will set off on your journey with him. Following the briefing, you will begin your chimpanzee trekking in this rainforest at approximately 8:00 in the morning while being accompanied by the park rangers. It is always an exciting and once-in-a-lifetime experience to come face to face with chimpanzees and witness them engage in their daily routines such as playing, jumping, feeding, and other similar activities. In addition, it is possible to see a variety of other animals, such as the L’Hoest’s monkey, the grey cheeked mangabey, and many birds.

When some time has passed, you should return to the lodge for lunch before checking out and beginning the three-hour drive to Queen Elizabeth National Park, which is home to a wide variety of animal species.

Day 4: Game drive & Launch cruise

You should get up and ready for the day as early as possible, grab a cup of coffee, and then go on a wildlife drive down the Kasenyi route. There are a number of animals and birds that are active early in the day, including elephants, antelopes, solitary buffaloes, lions, warthogs, and birds. After the trip, which should take between two and three hours, arrive at the lodge, where you will have breakfast and lunch, and then, after some time has passed, you will go on the launch cruise down the Kazinga canal. One of the most enjoyable activities available in the park is a boat tour, during which you will have the opportunity to see a variety of animals, including birds, waterbucks, crocodiles, hippos, and water buffalo along the banks of the river.

Day 5: Travel from the Queen Elizabeth to the Bwindi Forest 

After breakfast, you will start your journey to Bwindi, passing through the Ishasha sector on the way. Along the way, you will have the opportunity to see climbing lions and many other types of animals. You will get to take in some beautiful vistas of the surrounding area as you travel. Take a lunch break while traveling, and plan to arrive to the Park or Lodge in the afternoon. Have a wonderful time at supper and the overnight.

Day 6: Gorilla tracking in the Bwindi forest followed by a tour of the Batwa community.

You will need to get up very early in the morning to have breakfast, and then you will need to drive to the Park head offices with your tour guide. In addition, you will need to remember to have a packed lunch with you. When you have been instructed by the ranger guides on what to do and what not to do while trekking and have arrived at the meeting location by 7:30 in the morning, you will be taken by them through the mist jungle. Due to the location of the gorillas, the typical duration of a trek can range anywhere from eight to twenty-four hours. When you finally get to view them, you will have a wonderful and enjoyable time seeing them, but you will only be able to do so for one hour. A sufficient amount of water, caps, sun glasses, raincoats, and cameras that do not use flash should also be brought along.

Later on, following the hike, make your way back to the lodge, where you’ll have lunch before making your way to a community visit among the Batwa people that will take place in the evening.
