Indulge in the enchanting beauty of Africa by visiting the core: the Pearl of Africa; Uganda.
We prepare to go to Murchison Fralls, a National Park with a beautiful waterfall and lots of wildlife. In this game park you will find many wild animals and it is one of the most beautiful game parks in Uganda. In the afternoon you will receive a briefing from the guide.
Budongo Forest is the largest “mahogany” forest in East Africa. A lot of chimpanzees live in the wild here. The estimate is that there are around 600 – 700. This morning you will meet your chimpanzee guide who will take you into the forest in search of chimpanzees. You also make a cruise on the Nile in the Murchison Falls National Park.
Please note: only a maximum of 12 people can search for the chimpanzees at a time. The one group goes on a cruise first and then on a chimp trek and afterwards they switch.
Activities package: chimpanzee trekking at Murchison Falls for half a da
Today we travel back to the capital of Uganda, Kampala. Here you have the opportunity to visit the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary and visit a program set up to protect the rhinos.
Activity package: Ziwa rhino walk
Lake Bunyony is a small but attractive lake to see different birds in their natural environment. We use this relaxed place to rest a while before we enter the domain of the gorillas.
The mountain gorilla is unfortunately seriously threatened with extinction. Official figures are missing, but their number is estimated at only 650 mountain gorillas. Visiting the gorillas is a great way to secure their future: the money you spend on permits is used for their protection. With the money that the permits raise, the local community is tried to understand that protection of the gorillas yields more than poaching the mountain gorilla.
It is very difficult to get permits. That is why we are required to be flexible on this part of the tour. We may visit the mountain gorilla in Uganda, but the mountain gorila also resides in Rwanda or in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Logically, the gorilla doesn’t care much about national borders. So it depends on the gorilla and the local authorities (who must issue the permits) where we view the gorillas. We ask you to take this into account and to adjust accordingly.
We take two days off for the gorilla trek. Keep in mind that the gorilla trek is only a day. We keep the other two days in hand, in case the gorillas do not show themselves or it is difficult to get permits.
You are also going, this is part of the activity package, out on a motorboat to the Nyombi Village pygmy strain.
Optional activities are a boat tour to the Batwa community (bushmen), or a hike / hike through the mountainous surroundings (community walk).
This day you spend traveling back to Kampala, Uganda and after that your journey unfortunately ends.
