Brief information about the tour

This 5-day Gorillas and Game Safari will take you to Queen Elizabeth National Park for game drives and a boat trip on the Kazinga Channel, which connects Lake George and Lake Edward in Uganda. This channel boasts the biggest concentration of hippos in the world, as well as over 700 different bird species. On a ‘good’ day, a sail along the Kazinga Channel might expose you to more species than any single game drive. You will next go to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, where you will get the opportunity to hike one of the habituated families of mountain gorillas. This 5-day gorilla and game safari begins and concludes in Entebbe.

5-day Gorillas and Game SafariDAY 2: Gorilla trekking in Bwindi National Park

After an early breakfast and a packed lunch, your guide will bring you to Ruhija Park Headquarters for registration and briefings at 7:45 a.m. Your guides will lead you through the dense creepers and vegetation in your quest to discover the gorillas. This walk might take anywhere from 30 minutes to three quarters of a day. The densely wooded area is crisscrossed by numerous animal pathways that provide access to tourists. The amount of time you spend on the walk is primarily determined by the gorillas’ movements. But it’s an incredible experience to be around these lovely but endangered creatures.

After breakfast, you will drive for Queen Elizabeth National Park in Western Uganda, arriving in time for lunch at Elephant Hab or Pumba Safari Cottages. After lunch, you will have time to unwind before embarking on an evening wildlife drive across Kasenyi’s Savannah plains. The Kasenyi plains are home to herds of buffaloes, elephants, and antelopes, as well as big cats like lions and leopards, which can be observed with sheer chance. Return to your resort for an overnight stay.
