On the first day, you will have a briefing on the safari before we head to Murchison Falls National Park for a safari with a chance to visit Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary. You can choose to visit and track White Rhinos at the sanctuary. We drive through the famous Luwero Triangle.

In the morning, we drive to Kibale National Park for chimps and primate tracking. On the way, you will enjoy spectacular views of Lake Albert.
The next day will consist of chimpanzee tracking with tracking over 12 primates in Kibale National Park. Chimpanzees are man’s closest cousins though they are one of the most threatened primates species.
Enjoy a drive to Queen Elizabeth National Park in the morning for herds of impala-like Uganda Kob, as well as topi, elephant and lion, giant forest hog and Cape Buffalo. There are also several soda lakes filling ancient volcanic calderas where flamingos reside seasonally.
We set out early in the morning for a game drive in the northern part of the Queen Elizabeth National Park in search for lions, elephants and solitary buffaloes. This is the best time for viewing the cats in action owing to the vast population of Uganda Kobs. We will also have a boat ride to see wildlife along the Kazinga Channel.
After early morning breakfast, embark on another game drive in search of lions, elephants, buffalo, kobs, elands and other antelope species. Enjoy a game drive in the northern part of the park, visiting the Baboon Cliff famous for its nice scenery and good views of the shadows of the mountains of the moon, the Rwenzoris.
Day eight will see us drive through the Ishasha sector of the park in search for the tree-climbing lions. Nowhere in Africa do you stand a better chance of seeing this than in the large low-limbed fig trees of Ishasha. We will drive to Bwindi in the late afternoon, check-in to the hotel and take a guided village walk in Buhoma Village.
The next two days at Bwindi Impenetrable National Park will see us venture on gorilla tracking as we trek through the rainforest and bamboo covered slopes. After gorilla tracking on day 10, we drive to Kisoro.
On day 11, it is time for Golden Monkey tracking at the scenic Mgahinga Gorilla National Park. Apart from primates, the park has rare bird species, some endemic to the Albertine rift area such as Scarlet-tufted Malachite Sunbird, Mountain Yellow Warblers, Rwenzori Batis, Rwenzori Turaco, Archers Robin Chat and many more.
In the morning, we drive to Kampala, driving down the grassed and terraced escarpments of southwestern Uganda while taking in the breathtaking sights of the hills of the region dubbed as the little Switzerland of Africa. A remarkable highlight of this journey is the equator line and we will have a brief stop here. We will be in Kampala in the evening.
