Chimp walking in Kibale and Gorilla trekking in Bwindi. Meet our closest families in one trip. Once in a lifetime meeting with mountain gorillas and chimpanzees in the steamy rainforests of Uganda
Day 1: To Kibale NP
Early in the morning we will pick you up from the hotel or guesthouse of your choice and leave for Kibale Forest. In the afternoon we will arrive at Kibale Forest Camp, sleeping with the sounds of the tropical rainforest.
Day 2: Chimp walk
At 08.00 am we will start with the 4 hour chimp walk – during which you may also get to see 10 other primates! Kibale park is also known for all the butterflies and birds. In the afternoon we will walk through Bigodi Swamp (home to a community based project).
Day 3: To Bwindi Impenetrable NP
Early morning after breakfast start (8 AM) the drive to Kabale for lunch. From here the journey takes us through a beautiful landscape called the “Switzerland of Africa”. We pass mountains, hills and lakes with cultivated terraces, tropical rainforest and bamboo forest. On the last hill the landscape unfolds beneath us, in the vast plane of Uganda, Rwanda and Congo the Virunga volcanoes dominate the view.
The day of gorilla tracking!
You will travel by car to the starting point of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest NP. Once there you will first receive a briefing (7.45am) and at 8.30am you will start the tracking. Once you have found the gorillas, you will be able to spend up to one hour with them!
Day 5: To Kampala
Early in the morning after breakfast you will travel back to Kampala. On the way back to the city you will have lunch in Mbarara town, and after Masaka, there will be an opportunity to a stop at the Equator for photo shoots and buying souvenirs and have tea or coffee.
We will then bring you to a guesthouse, campsite or hotel of your choice in Kampala or Entebbe – or, if you continue your holiday somewhere else or back home, we will bring you directly to Entebbe airport for an onwards flight.
