Summary of The Day: Upon arrival at Entebbe International Airport you will be met by our safari guide who will transfer you to your hotel in Kampala.
If you arrive early, you will be taken on a brief tour of the city of Kampala.
Summary of The Day: In the morning you will have a meet and greet with our local guide over breakfast, and then drive to southwestern Uganda. Enroute,we'll visit a local community popular for making local drums and crafts. We'll stop here for a rest break and to buy souvenirs.
Then we'll proceed to the equator line and take in the the beautiful scenery of Africa. As we continue on our route we'll pass by mountains, tropical rainforest and bamboo forest during the nine hour journey to Bwindi.
Summary of The Day: We'll have an early morning entry into the mountain gorillas’ sanctuary. The rainforest is spectacular, and heavily vegetated with dense landscapes crisscrossed by numerous animal trails, allowing access for trekkers. This park is best known for the fascinating gorillas, where the time taken and terrain varies according to the movements of these fantastic apes.
Our intimate gorilla experience will allow you to accompany the Uganda Wildlife Authority’s Bwindi gorilla habituation team for the entire day, letting you to have a minimum 4 hours in the presence of a mountain gorilla family – since regular permits only allow 1 hour, this is 4 times the amount of time spent up close with Gorillas, more than any other safari operator! During this time you will be able to experience the gorilla family as they wake up, hunt, patrol, play, fight, copulate, and breastfeed until they build their nests at bed time.
The thrill of spending time with and observing these gentle giants is a rare and moving adventure that will leave you with long lasting memories. Spending more time with them than the norm means you are assured of the best possible experience, with 4 full hours for better photography, researcher access for more questions, and enough time to experience more intimate and unusual behaviors. The gorillas are shy and peaceful animals and it is an unforgettable experience to watch and photograph them as they interact with each other.
The walking can sometimes be tough and long, but when you catch a glimpse of the magnificent silverback, any discomforts will be quickly forgotten. Once the gorillas are sighted, you will be guided to within 6 meters of the gorillas, and be able to sit all around them while gazing into their big round eyes as the researchers note health, behavior and other characteristics. Dinner and overnight will be at your lodge of booking.
Summary of The Day: After breakfast, we'll check out and drive to Kibale National Park. Along the way, enjoy the stunning scenery and gorgeous views of Mountains of the Moon – the Rwenzori. Upon arrival we'll check into our accommodation for the night.
Summary of The Day: Today we’ll accompany Kibale’s researchers in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to contribute to a “soft” habituation project with chimpanzees. You’ll learn to safely observe the chimps during their daily activities, so they get comfortable with human presence without changing their natural behaviors. You will be able to experience the chimp families as they wake up, hunt, patrol, play, fight, copulate, and breastfeed. Guided by biologists and researchers, we will enjoy unprecedented intimate access to these wild chimps for the entire day until they build their nests at bed time.
Kibale Forest hosts at least 1,500 chimpanzees out of the 4,950 found in Uganda, making this the largest concentration of chimps in Africa. The park is also home to 10 other primates including diurnal species like the Red Colobus Monkey, Blue Monkey, Red-tailed monkey, Gray Checked Mangabeys, and Vervet Monkey, as well as many other animals. Dinner and overnight will be at your lodge of booking.
Summary of The Day: After breakfast we'll head back to Kampala (about 5 hour driving) via Mubende. This route travels through breathtaking scenery and delightfully rolling plantations some of the best in Uganda. Depending on how much time we have on us we can tour around Kampala‘s craft and souvenirs markets before checking in at your hotel or being transferred to the airport.
