Day 2: Game drive & boat ride Kazinga Channel.
Queen Elizabeth National Park is Uganda’s second largest park, located at the base of the majestic Rwenzori Mountain range, adjacent to Lake Edward and Lake George. Lions are often sighted both inside and at the entrance to the park.

After lunch, you will have a boat cruise along the Kazinga Channel which joins Lake George and Lake Edward 40kms.

This will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of your tour. After you will be transferred back to your preferred hotel.
Day 3: Drive Via Ishasha to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest
Today you will be transferred to the southern part of Queen ElizabethN.P. This area is called Ishasha Sector and is famous for its tree-climbing lions.
To escape from the heat during the day, the Lions learned how to climb the fig trees. If you’re lucky you might spot a few during your game drive.
After the game drive, you will be taken to Buhoma, from where you will do the gorilla tracking tomorrow!
Day 4: Gorilla Trekking
Today is the big day… Prepare yourself for an encounter with one of Bwindi’s gentle giants: the rare mountain gorilla. For most people, this is the absolute highlight of their tour in Uganda.
Bwindi Impenetrable Forest boasts both mountain gorillas and chimpanzees – the only forest in Africa which can make this claim in fact. It also hosts eleven other species of primate to make it 13, 113 species of mammal, over 200 butterflies and 360 birds. The gorillas you will track belong to one of seventeen habituated family groups who can tolerate the presence of humans for a brief period every day.
Your gorilla trekking will be an exciting journey along forested slopes, entwined vines, bushes and bamboo before you eventually reach the gorillas’ habitat. En-route, your guide will point out signs of previous gorilla activity, including dung, nests and chewed bamboo shoots.
The time taken to track the gorillas can take as little as 2 hrs to as much as 7 hrs before one returns! Once the gorillas have been located, your group will be allowed a maximum of one hour with them. Coming face-to-face with a mountain gorilla is a truly humbling and emotional experience. This is a fantastic and privileged opportunity to get up close and personal with Uganda’s very own ‘Gorillas in the Mist’. After you will be transferred back to your hotel/lodge.
