Itinerary for 5-Days Mountain Gorillas Tracking & Queen Elizabeth National Park Adventure

Day 1
To Queen Elizabeth National Park

After your morning breakfast, you will embark on an exciting drive to Queen Elizabeth National Park situated in the shadows of Mt. Rwenzori with several stops along the way for relaxation, equator and landscape viewing before reaching the Park in the evening or late afternoon.

After your long journey, you will check in to Pumba Safari Cottages for relaxation, dinner and overnight stay. Pumba Safari Cottages is a great Lodge by Queen Elizabeth national park-located in a prime wildlife area. The lodge is located in Kyambura overlooking Queen Elizabeth National Park. With a view over a rich animal kingdom you might spot elephants coming to enjoy the waterhole.

Day 2
Game Drive & Boat Safari on Kazinga Channel

On this day, your safari breakfasts will be served before the day breaks so that you can start your morning game drive as the sun comes up. Sunrise is the best time for wildlife spotting as animals tend to be the most active during the “golden hours”, when the first rays of sunshine come to rest on the savannah. Elephants, buffalo and several species of antelope are some of the characters you may come across today, and if you’re lucky, you may even spot a lion or leopard.

You will return for lunch and later in the day when the sun is high in the sky and the animals make their way to the river for a drink, you will head to Kazinga Channel for an exciting boat safari. You will spot more hippos today than you can possibly imagine. Herds of elephants and buffalo will also be wandering down to the shoreline to bath in the cooling waters. It will be a wonderful experience.

After the boat safari, you will return to the lodge for relaxation, dinner and overnight stay.

Day 3
To Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

On this day, you will wake up early and have your breakfast then transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park while enjoying a scenic drive that allows you to view the beautiful and varied country side. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is located in the southwestern part of Uganda on the rim of the Rift Valley. More notably, this “impenetrable forest” protects an predictable 320 population of mountain gorillas – approximately half of the population in the world, among which are a number of habituated groups, that can be tracked by visitors.

You will arrive in the evening and check in at Buhoma Community Rest Camp for relaxation, dinner and overnight. Buhoma Community Rest Camp gives outdoor enthusiasts a taste of safari-style living and is an excellent base camp for gorilla trekking, as well as observing the many endemic bird species that inhabit the region.

Day 4
Mountain Gorillas Tracking & Batwa Community Visit

After your breakfast, you will hike to the Park headquarters just meters from the Lodge for briefing by Uganda Wildlife Authority guides before transferring to the starting point for Mountain Gorillas tracking. Your tracking experience will be an exciting, yet challenging, journey along forested slopes, tangled vines, thick vegetation & bamboo forests before you reach the territory of these gentle giants. The visit will give you a glimpse into the life of a Mountain Gorilla family & if you are lucky enough to gaze into the eyes of a Mountain Gorilla. Visiting Mountain Gorillas will take you 3 hours to a full day trek through the forest since Mountain Gorillas move from one place to another every day looking for food & water.

After Mountain Gorillas tracking, you will visit the Batwa community for them to take you through their traditions like traditional dance, beer making, setting fire among others (optional) before returning to the lodge for relaxation, dinner & overnight stay.
