Itinerary

Day 1 Entebbe
After arrival in Entebbe, you will meet up with your guides. This day is set aside for everyone to explore the area. Most people take an optional day trip to the Chimpanzee Sanctuary of Ngamba Island. This non-profit eco-friendly project was set up in 1998 to care for orphaned chimpanzees.
Optional Activities: Ngamba Chimpanzee Excursion, visit the Uganda Wildlife Education Centre,
Dinner Out.
Meals: No meals included
Overnight: Uganda Wildlife Education Centre


Day 2 Entebbe - Lake Bunyoni
Lake Bunyonyi is a small but attractive lake with steep sides and abundant birdlife. Ringed by mountains, the lake is best known for its dense Otter population and stunning scenery. You make use of this beautiful spot to relax the night before the final drive to the gorillas.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Overnight: Lake Bunyonyi Overland Resort


Day 3/4 Gorillas (Lake Bunyoni)
The mountain gorilla is extremely endangered and while exact numbers vary it is widely assumed that there are only around 650 left. Visiting the gorillas is a great way to support their future on earth as the money spent on permits is used for their protection. An extremely important part of the future conservation of the remaining gorillas rests in the community development work as local communities change their attitudes towards wildlife and start to protect rather than poach, the future of the mountain gorilla is assured.

As permits granting permission to visit the gorillas are extremely limited you require flexibility in both the tour itinerary and where you actually visit them. The home of the mountain gorillas is completely at odds with man-made borders and so their range encompasses Uganda, Rwanda and the DRC (Democratic Republic of the Congo). Whenever possible we choose to make use of the National Park in Uganda, but this depends on the availability of permits.
Should you not obtain permits to visit the mountain gorillas in Uganda then all passengers will be inform beforehand that the tour will travel to Rwanda or DRC.

On your free day in Bunyoni you will have the opportunity to participate in certain optional activities. You can embark on a boat ride to the community of the Batwa (pygmies) who stay in the islands adjacent to the lake to observe their social lifestyle, behaviour and be entertained by their cultural performances. You can also go hiking or explore the area on a mountain bike. Optional activities: Visit to the Batwa (Pygmies) tribe, mountain biking, nature walk, hiking
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Overnight: Lake Bunyonyi Overland Resort


Please Note: Although there are 2 days allocated to Gorilla Trekking you will only spend one day on the trek. The other day are there to provide a large enough window in which to obtain permits and to allow the entire group to trek if there are more than 5 of you on the tour.


Day 5/6 Queen Elizabeth National Park
Leaving Lake Bunyoni, you venture to the Queen Elizabeth National Park, where you will spend the next 2 nights. Many game species can be found in this wetland park as well as the (elsewhere elusive) giant forest hog and the legendary tree-climbing lions of the Ishasha Sector. You will enjoy an included 4x4 game drive on day 6 through the National Park.
Optional Activities: Kasinga Channel Sunset Cruise, Chimpanzee trekking at Lake George
