When you arrive at Entebbe you will be met and taken to The Boma Guest House, or an equivalent property for your first night. The remainder of the day is at leisure, allowing you to relax after your flight, and you have a choice of local restaurants for meals today, or you can eat in-house.
Fly To Bwindi
After breakfast you'll head to the airport for the 90 minute flight to Bwindi. On arrival you'll be transferred to the lodge, a journey of about 2 hours. This afternoon there'll be time to take a guided walk in the forest, or pay a visit to a local village for an insight into the way of life and culture.
Today is the real highlight for many people - the day you trek for gorillas! You will be put into a group matching your rough physical fitness by the park authorities. Some gorillas are nearby and others can be a long hike away. Once you find the family, you have one hour to revel in this incredible experience, watching them at rest and play. Afterwards you'll return to the lodge for a well-earned rest.
Optional Second Trek, Walk Or Community Visit
If you have bought a second gorilla permit, then this is your day to head off into the mountains again to spend another magical hour with the gorillas. Otherwise it's a day to relax, take a guided forest walk or perhaps a visit a local village. Either way you'll have a full and rewarding day in Bwindi.
Drive To Ishasha
This morning, having had breakfast, you'll set off for Ishasha in the south of Queen Elizabeth National Park. On they way you'll stop to visit the Ishasha Community Project where you can walk around the village, meet the local people and have the opportunity to buy locally made handicrafts. Total driving time is 2-3 hours, so you'll arrive at Ishasha Wilderness Camp in good time.
Queen Elizabeth National Park
Today you'll be busy on a game drive in the Ishasha region of Queen Elizabeth National Park. Elephant, buffalo and several species of antelope live here and you might even get to see one of the famous tree-climbing lions of the area! Nearer the camp there will be chances to do some bird watching.
Kazinga Channel And Queen Elizabeth National Park
This morning you'll have another game drive to the northern sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park, followed by a boat cruise on the Kazinga Channel. This is excellent for observing birds and wildlife on the riverbanks. You'll overnight at a lodge nearby tonight.
Chimp Trek, Return To Entebbe
Rising early you'll have the chance to go on a chimpanzee trek in Chambura Gorge, another exciting encounter with primates! On completion of the trek you'll transfer to the airport for the flight back to Entebbe, where you'll be met and transferred either into town (if you're continuing your holiday in Uganda), or to the international airport for your onward flight.
