Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Entebbe

On arrival into Entebbe you will be met and assisted to your hotel where you stay for one night.

Overnight: Airport Guest House (Bed and Breakfast)


Day 2: Kibale Forest National Park

Today you will transfer to Kibale Forest where you stay for one night. The journey is scenic and on good roads.

You will stop for lunch as well as rest stops as required, however, light aircraft flight options are available at additional cost.

Relax in the afternoon at the lodge which has stunning views over the crater lakes from the main building and swimming pool.

Overnight: Crater Safari Lodge (Full Board – Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner) 


Day 3: Northern Queen Elizabeth National Park

Spend the morning searching for the famous chimpanzees of Kibale Forest. It should be noted that because chimpanzees move quickly through the trees sightings are not guaranteed, however, Kibale forest offers the most reliable sightings and close-up viewing opportunities.

In the afternoon, embark on a shared safari boat cruise on the Kazinga Channel, before transferring to Queen Elizabeth National Park for one night.

Overnight: Mweya Safari Lodge (Full Board – Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner)

Enjoy the wildlife encounter of a lifetime as you trek the majestic mountain gorillas in Bwindi.

After the trek, enjoy an optional visit to the Ride 4 A Woman project; a community initiative providing work and valuable skills for the local women. This is a hub of activity, with a lovely craft shop and a chance to engage with the local ladies. They even offer cooking lessons by pre-arrangement so you can learn to make the famous snack, a Uganda Rolex!

Overnight: Mahogany Springs Lodge (Full Board Plus – Dinner, Bed, Breakfast, Lunch and Activities)
