Luxury Uganda safari 10 days

The itinerary includes visits to 5 National Parks, Kibale Forest, Queen Elizabeth, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Lake Mburo National Parks. In the rainforests of Kibale Forest there will be the two opportunities to trek for the chimpanzees. Trekking twice allows for the observations of the chimpanzees during a different section of their daily lives, once in the morning and then again in the afternoon. Game drives and a shared boat trip on the Kazinga channel whilst at Queen Elizabeth National Park will reward your senses with the sights and sounds of the open savannah and lush grasslands of this spectacular wildlife reserve. The highlight of the safari is a hike in the Bwindi forests in search of the rare mountain gorilla. An hour spent with one of the habituated gorilla families will provide a lifetime of memories. You will watch the infants and juveniles tumble and play alongside their mothers and as your eyes spot the shining back of the mighty Silverback the hairs on your arms tingle as the excitement mounts and you realise the opportunity which you have been given to share this experience with your fellow trekkers and this incredible apes.
