Tour Plan

Day 1 – Chimpanzee Trekking in Kibale National Park

This morning after an early breakfast, your driver will drop you at the airport to catch your morning flight to Kasese Airstrip which is close to Kibale Forest National Park. You will be received by another driver who will drive you through the beautiful scenery to your lodge which is located very close to the forest, and this is where you are expected to have lunch. After lunch, you will be driven to the park headquarters where you will join other trackers who will have come for the afternoon trek. After a short briefing by one of the park officials, you will be allocated a ranger guide who will lead the group into the forest to find the chimpanzees. It is said that there are over 2000 chimpanzees in this forest making it one of the best places for chimpanzee trekking in Africa. You will be driven back to your lodge after the trek.

Day 2 – Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

After breakfast, you will depart Kibale Forest for Bwindi and this drive will take you through the beautiful sceneries as well as the village en route. It is an interesting route where you will be driving through Queen Elizabeth National Park right from the northern side to the southern end of the park (Isahsha sector). This is where you will enjoy your picnic lunch. There are many chances of seeing wildlife like elephants, buffalos, waterbucks, kobs, topis as well as leopards and the tree climbing lions that are famous in this sector. After this, you will then proceed further south to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. This is the only day of this trip that will include driving for more than 4 hours.

Day 3 – Gorilla Trekking Experience in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

This day is always regarded as the biggest day of all days on the safari. So, after breakfast, you will head out to the park headquarters where you have to get to no later than 7:30 am. Here, you will join other visitors for a briefing by one of the park staff. Thereafter, you will meet with the lead guide who will take you into the forest to find the gorilla family that you will be allocated to. This may take between 2-7 hours round trip depending on how long the family you are trekking will have moved today from where it was last seen yesterday. Depending on how you feel, you may go out for an evening community walk through the villages very close to the forest.

Day 4 – Fly from Bwindi Forest to Entebbe International Airport

After breakfast, your driver-guide will drive you to the nearest airstrip where you will board the flight to Entebbe International Airport. This will mark the end of your 4-day primate safari.
