Price From:
R6 150.00

Destination: Uganda

Duration: 8

Departs From: Kampala

Regions Included:Ngamba Chimpanzee Sanctuary, Bunyonyi, Queen Elizabeth National Park


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.

Itinerary

Day 1 Uganda - Kampala
After your arrival in Uganda’s capital and largest city, Kampala, you will meet up with your guides and have the whole day free to relax and explore.

Meals: Lunch, Dinner
Overnight: Red Chilli Hideaway - www.redchillihideaway.com

Day 2 Kampala / Ngamba Chimpanzee Sanctuary
Although officially this day is set aside for everyone to explore Kampala, 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, Kampala Markets, Dinner Out.

Meals: Breakfast
Overnight: Red Chilli Hideaway - www.redchillihideaway.com

Day 3 Lake Bunyonyi
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. We make use of this beautiful spot to relax the night before the final drive to the gorillas.

Meals:Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Overnight: Lake Bunyonyi Campsite - www.bunyonyioverland.com

Day 4/5/6 Gorillas
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 we require flexibility in both the tour itinerary and where we 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 we not obtain permits to visit the mountain gorillas in Uganda then we will inform all passengers beforehand that the tour will travel to Rwanda or DRC.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Overnight: Buhoma Community Camp - www.buhomacommunity.com

Please note: Although there are 3-days allocated to Gorilla Trekking you will only spend one-day on the trek. The other days 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 6 of you on the tour.
Day 7 Queen Elizabeth National Park
Many game species are to be found in this wetland park including the (elsewhere elusive) giant forest hog, and the legendary tree-climbing lions of the Ishasha Sector. Optional Activities: Kasinga Channel Sunset Cruise.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Overnight: Queen Elizabeth National Park - www.queenelizabethnationalpark.com

Day 8 Kampala
Today we drive back to Kampala where our tour will come to an end.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch
