8 Days in the Skies Over Uganda [Pure Luxury Expedition]

Begin your journey on “8 Days Wings Over Uganda” to discover the diverse landscape of western Uganda, home to a variety of wild animals and mountain gorillas. Learn more about Uganda on one of the several regularly scheduled flights to Kisoro, Kibale National Park, and Murchison Falls. See the critically endangered mountain gorillas twice in Uganda’s ancient and untouched rainforest while sleeping in top-notch luxury safari lodges. This is the single most important thing you can do to make the most of your trip.

Day 1: Flight to Kisoro and Transfer to Bwindi National Park.

Today, we will make the journey to Entebbe airport in order to catch our connecting flight to Kisoro. After you arrive at Kisoro Airstrip, our driver guide will bring you to your lodge in the southern parks of Bwindi, which is around +/- two hours away from the Nkuringo side of the gorillas. Settle into the lodge and get ready for the Ultimate Gorilla trekking that will take place the next day.

Spend the night at either the Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge or the Nkuringo Gorilla Lodge.

Day 2: Xtreme Gorilla Trekking

This afternoon, you will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with mountain gorillas. The expedition begins with a briefing at the park headquarters, after which participants will make their way deeper into the jungle. You will have the opportunity to spend one hour with them, after which you can either head back to the starting point or to the resort for a nightcap and to catch up around the campfire.

Spend the night at either the Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge or the Nkuringo Gorilla Lodge.

Day 3: The Ultimate Gorilla Hiking Experience in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Uganda
You are about to embark on a day filled with gorilla encounters today. This day will have you observing some of humankind’s closest relatives in Bwindi as you embark on a gorilla tracking excursion with a new gorilla family. The trip will begin with a briefing, like it did the day before, and then go on into the dense forests of Bwindi. (If you would like, you can choose to participate in the gorilla habituation on this day.)

Spend the night at either the Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge or the Nkuringo Gorilla Lodge.

Day 4: Fly to Kibale National PArk

In the morning of today, you will make the transfer to Kisoro Airstrip, where you will wait for around two hours in order to board a connecting charter flight to Kasese Airstrip, which is located a little to the east of Uganda. You will then be met by another of our guides who will take you to either the Ndali Lodge or the Kyaninga Lodge, all of which are breathtaking.

Enjojo Lodge or Ishasha Wilderness Lodge will be your home for the night.

Day 5: Bigodi Swamp Tour & Chimpanzee Trekking.

This day will be spent embarking on the Bigodi Swamp Walk, which is located on the outskirts of Kibale National Park. After this exhilarating walk of approximately three hours, you will go on to the chimpanzee trekking experience in the afternoon. Retreat to the resort, which features a stunning pool and a breathtaking sunset.

Spend the night at the Kyaninga Lodge or the Turraco Tree Tops Lodge.

Travel to the Kasese Airstrip, followed by a flight to Murchison Falls on Day 6.

Transfer to the Kasese airfield will be provided for you this morning in preparation for your connecting charter aircraft to Murchison Falls National Park. Bugungu airfield may be reached in a little over one and a half hours from here. You will be transferred to the lodge by our driver and guide. You can choose to spend the rest of the afternoon at the pool or go on a game drive in the evening.
Spend the night at either the Bakers Lodge or the Twiga Safari Lodge.

Day 7 will consist of a boat cruise on the Nile and a game drive.

In the northern part of Queen Elizabeth National Park, where there is a lot of wildlife, we are going to go on a wildlife game drive today. We might start the day with lunch at the lodge, then take an afternoon boat excursion to the base of the falls, followed by a hike to the top of the falls, and then end the day back at the resort.

Spend the night at either the Bakers Lodge or the Twiga Safari Lodge.

Day 8: Fly back to Entebbe, where you will either check into your hotel or connect to your aircraft home.

Our return aircraft to Entebbe will depart from Bugungu Aistrip, so we will transfer there. This will take approximately +/- two hours. Transfer to the lodge for a day stay or to the airport for your connecting flight back home will be provided upon arrival.
