Tourists will then arrive at the pristine town of Fort Portal, located at the base of the extensive and majestic Ruwenzori Mountains. After a delicious lunch, continue the journey along the undulating hillside past the scenic Crater Lakes to the stunning Kibale Forest Camp situated in the famous Kibale Forest National Park.

Early next morning, embark on the trip with Kibale’s expert researchers into the beautiful subtropical forests to track down the local chimpanzees’ population. To view these regal creatures in their natural habitat is an out of this world experience.

 

Day 4 – Day 5

Bid adieu to the mind-blowing beauty of Kibale Forest and make your way towards the southern region through the rich farmland. Travel on the magnificent slopes of the gorgeous Ruwenzori Mountains which is famously known as one of Africa’s tallest mountain ranges. Cross the equator before you finally reach the legendary Queen Elizabeth National Park.

After enjoying a tantalizing lunch at the beautiful Queen Elizabeth Bush Lodge, start out on a safari drive in Uganda’s primary game viewing district. Be on a constant lookout for elephants and buffaloes which are common visitors over here. This is also the breeding ground of the rare Uganda kobs and you will see them grazing on the lush green grass.

Continue with your safari trip in this beautiful park, the next day, as you thoroughly explore the intricate network of tracks in your quest for all the animals you have yet to see. In the evening, board a cruise on the Kazinga Channel which is home to the vast concentration of hippos.

This early morning will see tourists off on a once in a lifetime experience of trekking for the exquisite mountain gorillas of Uganda.
