The objective of this Vintage Primate Safari excursion is for your walking guide to share his expertise in the forest with you; it is not just a stroll from point A to point B. The track is also a popular route for locals, especially on market days, connecting Nkuringo and Nteko to Buhoma, on the park’s northern edge. Because there is no road through Bwindi.

Join the car at the park offices in Buhoma and leave for Queen Elizabeth National Park for its resident ‘tree-climbing lions‘.

Day 6: Explore Queen Elizabeth National Park Savanna

at Queen Elizabeth National Park Mornings are allocated to game drives, and boat rides on the Kazinga Channel are experienced during the evening. The park is one of Uganda’s oldest, having been founded in 1952. The park was originally titled ‘Kazinga National Park,’ but it was renamed in 1954 to mark a visit by Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom. Queen Elizabeth National Park is home to 95 species of animals, more than any other park in Uganda, and 619 bird species.11 Days The Best of Uganda Safari

Day 8: Chimpanzee Habituation Experience in Kibale

11 Days The Best of Uganda SafariThis is your second Uganda Safari Highlights rainforest jungle challenge: identify the eager chimp troop and follow up with their daily natural behaviours. Can you handle it? It’s thrilling and exhausting, but it’s well worth it.
