Itinerary

Upon your arrival in Uganda, you will be warmly greeted at the airport and transferred to your accommodation. Take the rest of the day to relax and prepare for the upcoming adventure. This first day in Uganda offers you a gentle introduction to the vibrant life and warmth of its people.
Dive into the heart of Uganda’s primate territory with a chimpanzee habituation experience. Unlike typical visits, habituation allows you to spend extended time with these fascinating creatures, observing their behaviors and interactions within the group. This experience provides a deeper understanding of the daily lives of chimpanzees in their natural habitat.
Explore Uganda’s rich savannahs on a thrilling game drive, spotting a variety of wildlife that includes lions, elephants, and perhaps the elusive leopard. Later, embark on a boat safari that offers a unique vantage point to view animals as they gather around the water’s edge. This combination of land and water-based activities showcases the diversity of Uganda’s ecosystems.
Venture into the Kisovo region, known for its breathtaking landscapes and rich biodiversity. This day is dedicated to exploring the area’s natural beauty, with opportunities for bird watching and encountering smaller wildlife species that contribute to the ecological tapestry of Uganda.
Challenge yourself with a trek to the summit of Mount Sabyinyo. This active volcano, known as the “Old Man’s Teeth” due to its rugged peak, offers not only physically rewarding hikes but also stunning panoramic views across three countries—Uganda, Rwanda, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
The highlight of your trip, gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, promises an emotional and thrilling encounter with the gentle giants of the forest, the mountain gorillas. Trekking through the dense forest to come face-to-face with these majestic creatures is an awe-inspiring experience that resonates with profound respect and awe for nature.
After the intense emotions of gorilla trekking, unwind at the serene Lake Bunyonyi, known for its scenic beauty and tranquility. Take a canoe trip, swim in its bilharzia-free waters, or simply relax and reflect on the natural beauty surrounding you.
On your final day, reflect on the incredible experiences and lasting memories you’ve created as you prepare for your journey home. Transfer to the airport, carrying with you a newfound appreciation for Uganda’s natural wonders and the conservation efforts that keep them alive and thriving.
