You’ll’ track chimpanzees hunting through their natural habitat and colobus monkeys and Sitatunga antelope in the Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary. Keen bird watchers can expect a range of species, including the impressive great blue turaco and rare papyrus gonoleks.

Stay Three nights in a double room at Kyambura Gorge Lodge on the 12 days Uganda safari tour.
Days 8 – 10 Bwindi Impenetrable Forest
Today you set off into gorilla country as your safari takes you into the primaeval Bwindi Forest. And along the way, you’ll’ be able to see tree-climbing lions and appreciate magnificent countryside – some of it making for difficult travelling!
Your accommodation is comfortable, though; you’ll’ be staying in the only luxury lodge in Bwindi National Park, with uninterrupted views of the towering forest and impressive river. So naturally, meeting gorillas in the wild is the main reason for visiting Bwindi for a thrilling experience.
The birdlife is lovely, and the forest’s flora is equally fascinating. You’ll’ also have the chance to meet the local community and trek through dense forest in search of the gentle giants.
Stay Three nights in a double room at Bwindi Lodge.
Days 11 – 12 Bwindi – Entebbe – Departure
