5 Days 4 Nights
Encounter with the Mountain Gorillas and chimpanzees on our safari to Kibale forest National park and the misty forests of Bwindi National Park , walk with the bigodi communities for a chance to see the Hornbills and Great Blue Turaco and lots of Monkeys and enjoy a cup of fresh cup of Mountainous organic Arabic coffee in the Kigezi highlands of Kisoro.
Today, our guide will meet you from your hotel in Kampala and drive to Kibale Forest National Park. The drive route is beautiful and picturesque – characterised by the lush green and hilly landscapes of Uganda. This evening, we shall go for a Bigodi swamp walk (2-3 hours) that takes you through grasslands, small communities where you meet the locals. It is usual to spot 3 or 4 different primate species during this walk and abundant birds life especially the Great Blue Turaco. Dinner and overnight at Kibale Forest Camp.
Kibale Forest is a large protected block of rainforest, which has the highest number of primates in Africa such as chimpanzees, Grey cheeked Mangabeys, Red tailed Monkeys and Red Colobus.
The journey takes you through the scenic country sides of western Uganda, crossing the equator line via Queen Elizabeth savanna grasslands and fig trees to the beautifully placed Kigezi Highlands with nice terraces overlooking virunga volcanoes. You will know why the place is called ‘the Switzerland of Africa’. Dinner and overnight at Rushaga Gorilla Camp
Today, prepare yourself for an encounter with the amazing Mountain Gorillas.Bwindi Impenetrable Forest boasts both Mountain Gorillas and chimpanzees - the only forest in Africa which can make this claim in fact. It also hosts five other species of primate, 113 species of mammal, over 200 butterflies and 360 birds. The gorilla tracking time is unpredictable, it is difficult to foresee how many hours you will actually hike. It may take 2 hours up to 5 hours or more and you should be prepared to walk long distance in steep and muddy conditions, sometimes with rain overhead, before you encounter any gorillas. Dinner and overnight at Rushaga Gorilla Camp.
After breakfast, we transfer to Entebbe international Airport, stopping at the Equator for those last minute souvenirs and photos.
