It is ever-green, beautiful, and hilly, which will give you the best scenic view, you will take pictures, and then later embark on the road to Kibale Forest National Park. You will arrive at your lodge in the evening, check-in, have dinner, and overnight.

On this early morning, you will wake up on a delicious breakfast, grab your trekking gear, and meet your driver guide who will transfer you to the Kanyanchu briefing center, you will be assigned a ranger guide who will lead you to the chimpanzee community which you will visit, you spend an hour with these interesting primates, you will take pictures capturing every moment in the jungle, you will return to the lodge with memories, enjoy a hot lunch and in the evening you visit Bigodi wetland which is a supplement to your chimpanzee trekking experience in Kibale.

You will wake up on a lazy breakfast, check out of the lodge, and transfer to Queen Elizabeth National Park which is a 2-hour drive from Kibale Forest National Park. You will arrive in the afternoon, check-in at the lodge, check in, have lunch, and later in the afternoon, you will do a boat cruise on the Kazinga channel which connects the Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda. This is a swimming pool for elephants, buffaloes, hippos, crocodiles, and birds, these will give you goosebumps as you see these big boys sharing a pool. You will enjoy sunset pictures and later return to the lodge for dinner and overnight.

On your 4th day of the 7-day Uganda safari holiday, you will wake up in the early morning, grab yourself a packed breakfast, and head to the jungle to catch the animals when they are still very active. Expect to encounter kobs, herds of buffaloes, bushbucks, and tree-climbing lions in the Ishasha sector. You will later enjoy your picnic breakfast and exit the park as you slop to the thick lush forests of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Arriving in Bwindi will be in the afternoon for lunch, check-in, have lunch, and relax at the lodge as you rewind about the memories created previously.

Arise in the morning, greet your intestines with a delicious breakfast, get your gorilla trekking gears, meet your driver guide who will transfer you to the park headquarters for a briefing about the gorilla trekking. This is about the dos and don’ts while tracking gorillas. You will later be assigned a gorilla family to track, then head to the thick forests to encounter the gentle giants, you will spend an hour with them, take pictures and videos, return to the park headquarters to get a tracking certificate, and proceed for a relaxed lunch at the lodge. You will spend this evening as you regain the lost energy and refresh the memories.
