Transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park.After an early breakfast we depart for Bwindi Impenetrable Forest via Mbarara town. We drive through stunning volcanic landscape adorned with steep sided hills covered from top to bottom in neatly terraced plantations of bananas, tea and thick montaine forests to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. The Bwindi area is a highly fertile, mountainous region with steep sided hills covered from top to bottom in neatly terraced rows of cultivation. You are really driving through the “Banana Republic” with banana plantations all around you, steep hills, small rivers – just amazing Gorilla Trekking & Wildlife Safari scenery.

Gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable ForestWith packed breakfast and having had your delicious breakfast ,meal you will then get into the car to drive to the briefing center to know more about what is going to happen in the forest. Thereafter head to the forest to search for the primates in the forest you will find them with help from the rangers and while with them you are allowed a full hour to interact with them as you observe the way they relate. There after you will transfer to the lodge to freshen up and then head for the Batwa walk in the evening to enjoy their vibrant dances and the various activities that they engage in and have a living from. Back to the lodge for dinner evening relaxation at the previous lodge.
Transfer to Queen Elizabeth National Park for the Tree Climbing Lions searchAfter breakfast we drive through stunning savannah grasslands as we head to the southern sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park, Ishasha a much more remote and less-traveled part of Queen Elizabeth National Park, but one which has a sense of exclusivity and remoteness. The game densities here are high, and this region has reported some of the largest herds of Elephant anywhere in Uganda, as it is their main migration corridor between Uganda and the DRC. As we enter the park, we do a game drive in search of the wild game. We continue and drive to the northern circuit which is the area near the main road known for its tree climbing lions. We look particularly at the many fig trees where lions like to stay. But we also visit the Uganda kob mating ground which is their preferred hunting area.
Game Drive Safari in Queen Elizabeth National ParkWe set out early in the morning for a game drive in the northern part of the park on the Kasenyi Track in search of lions, elephants, solitary buffaloes. This is the best time for opportunities of viewing the cats in action owing to the vast population of Uganda Kobs. We have an excellent chance to view just about every animal here at very close range. In the afternoon we will go for a launch trip along the Kazinga Channel. This gives you the opportunity to view wildlife up close: hippo’s huff and spray at a mere feet away from the boat, buffalo linger in the shallows. The shores of the channel are also home to an array of birds including pink backed pelicans, pied and malachite kingfishers, saddle billed stork and many others.
Visit the crater lakes region, Baboon cliffs and Depart to KigaliBreakfast and head for Kigali. While en-route, travel 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 Kigali’s craft center of nyamugongo and souvenirs markets before checking in at your hotel or being transferred to the airport for your flight catch.
