Touch down in Entebbe, Uganda’s lakeside city, which sits on the edge of Lake Victoria. Spend the afternoon at leisure relaxing in your hotel or exploring the city.

Day 3: Entebbe - Kibale National Park


This morning you’ll have a short safari briefing, then set off to Kibale Forest National Park. This huge protected rainforest is home to plenty of primates, and hopefully, you’ll be blessed enough to get up close and personal with some over the next few days. In the afternoon, you’ll visit the scenic crater lakes near Ndali on a sightseeing tour. (Meals: breakfast)

Day 4: Kibale National Park


Today you’ll venture out into the forest for your chimpanzee-tracking excursion. Trek through the lush greenery with your expert guide as they track the chimps. Hopefully, you’ll find a group and be able to watch them go about their daily activities, from climbing and feeding to noisily interacting with each other. You’ll head back to the lodge, then relax before a bird walk in the Bigodi Swamp this afternoon. (Meals: breakfast)

Day 5: Kibale National Park - Queen Elizabeth National Park

Day 6: Queen Elizabeth National Park


Today you’ll rise early for a sunrise game drive, giving you the best chance to see the wildlife of the region - from lions and buffalo to hyenas and leopards - as they’re waking up. Return to the lodge for a late breakfast, then later, head out on a cruise along the Kanziga Channel, famous for its hippos and crocodiles. (Meals: breakfast)

Day 7: Queen Elizabeth National Park - Lake Mburo


Wave goodbye to the national park today - you’ll be heading towards the Tanzania border to visit Lake Mburo. Spot game as you make your way towards the lodge, then relax for a while before an afternoon game drive. (Meals: breakfast)
