What's Included

Your Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival in Uganda

On your arrival for this Uganda adventure tour, you are transferred to your accommodation for the night. If your flight arrives in the afternoon, you have the option of exploring Entebbe town, the Entebbe Botanical Gardens, and or the Uganda Wildlife Education Center. Or you will simply check in and rest of the travel in readiness for the next day travel.

Day 2: Transfer to Queen Elizabeth National Park; Boat Safari Cruise on Kazinga Channel

The moment you’ve been waiting for has finally arrived: this is when your Ugandan safari begins. After a few brief formalities and an introduction to your guide, we’ll start this journey together and begin to discover all of the amazing animals Uganda has to offer. Transfer by road from Kampala to Queen Elizabeth National Park. You will have a stop over at the Equator Monument as you cross from the northern to southern hemisphere.
Once in the park, you will take the boat safari cruise on theKazinga Channel. Thereafter retire to your accommodation.

Day 3: Game Drive Seeking for Africa’s Big 5

Set on the Rift Valley floor in view of the snow-capped Rwenzori peaks, Queen Elizabeth National Park offers plenty of variety to safarigoers. On the Kasenyi and Ishasha Plains, large herds of Uganda kob, the national antelope, stand on constant guard for the lions that feed on them. Lakes Edward and George, together with the connecting Kazinga Channel, support around 5,000 hippos and an abundance of waterbirds, as well as being a magnet for thirsty elephant and buffalo herds.

After the game drive in Queen Elizabeth National Park, you will transfer by road to your accommodation near the Kibale National Park.

Day 4: Track the Chimpanzees of Kibale

The opportunity to see chimpanzees in the wild is one of the most memorable of all safari activities. Getting close to these creatures that share so much of our DNA is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and the excitement of walking through the forest and knowing that they are close will stay with you forever.

In the afternoon, you’ll go on a guided walk in the community-managed Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary bordering Kibale National Park. Here, you stand a good chance of spotting up to five monkey species. The forest birding is excellent, with a long list of colorful regulars that includes great blue turaco, papyrus gonolek, yellow-spotted barbet and blue-throated roller.

Day 5: Transfer to Murchison Falls National Park

Transfer to the Murchison Falls National Park. Described as the most exciting thing to happen to the Nile along its 6,000km journey from Lake Victoria to the Mediterranean, the 43m-high Murchison Falls is also the centerpiece of Uganda’s largest and oldest national park. Here you might encounter four of the Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant and buffalo), along with the world’s largest population of the endangered Rothschild’s giraffe, and several types of antelope and monkey.

Day 6: Game Drive, Nile Safari Cruise

Your early morning game drive in Murchison Falls National Park will quickly become the favorite part of your safari day, with animals out and active. It is amazing how you will not grow tired of the game drive experience – no matter how often you go out. The Murchison Falls National Park is different in landscapes, plants, birds and animals compared to Queen Elizabeth National Park. On your game drive, look out for the graceful giraffe, the colorful patas monkey (fastest monkey), the Abyssinian ground hornbill, and the beautiful white-crested turaco and red-headed lovebird.

In the afternoon, take a safari cruise on the Nile River all the way to the bottom of the Murchison Falls. The Nile is the world’s longest river, and this is the only cruise of its kind the whole length of the river.

Day 7: Transfer to Entebbe

Today you transfer to Kampala with a stopover at the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary. This is the last day with us on safari out in the great natural outdoors of Uganda. At Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary you will get to track rhinos. This is the only place in Uganda where you will find this member of the African Big Five out in the wild.
