Full Guide:

Kampala – Queen Elizabeth:

You will wake up early so as to have breakfast. Afterward, you will be  picked up from the hotel or Entebbe to start  your 5 Days Gorilla Tracing Trip. However, the trip will involve two pauses. First, at the Uganda Equator crossing in Kayabwe, briefly to take photos of this remarkable landmark.

Nevertheless, you will be able to study on how water drains (clockwise or anti-clockwise) when placed in the northern and southern hemispheres. Immediately, you will continue with the trip to Igongo Cultural Center, and Country Hotel for lunch as well as an optional tour of the local Museum known as “Erijukiro” Museum  6y7gh to have a view on some of the original artifacts of the Ankole people.

Therefore, the tour will continue to Mbarara the land of milk and honey, as well as Bushenyi where the cool air and lush vegetation will leave you open-mouthed, yet your arrival at Queen Elizabeth will introduce you to real heaven.

Game drive and boat cruise on Kazinga means:

The fatigue due to the trip on the previous day will require enough rest. However, get up early for breakfast, simply to start the game drive by 6:30 am for a chance to meet the lions and leopards returning from their hunt. The Queen’s mile as well as Kasenyi tracks within the vast savannah plains reward tourists with the chance to see many wildlife types which include; side-striped jackals, buffaloes, Kobs, and elands.

Well as a game drive doesn’t mean that your options will be limited to wildlife but also introduces you to the many bird types like the Chapin’s flycatcher, black bee-eaters and many others. Meanwhile, you will be returned to the Lodge for freshening-up, having lunch and relaxation.

The afternoon will be for the boat cruise along the Kazinga means, lasting about 2 hours and will be filled with surprises like spotting huge crocodiles and hippos lazing on the banks of the means as well as Kobs, elephants and  birds in large numbers like the African fish eagles, pink-backed pelicans, among others.

Transfer to Bwindi Forest:

Afterward your breakfast, you will then leave for Bwindi forest through Ishasha sector on the southern part of Queen Elizabeth. However, passing through Ishasha sector assures you of meeting with the funny tree-climbing lions resting on fig tree branches and other animals mainly the Kobs as well as buffaloes grazing within the vast savanna plains.

Meanwhile, you will have lunch at Savannah Hotel in Kihihi before reaching Buhoma sector of Bwindi forest. Then later on, you will check-in for a Lodge to have dinner and overnight.

Gorilla tracing and the Batwa culture:

Breakfast will be served early so that you can find your fellow gorilla trekkers at the Park base at 7:00 am to be briefed on how to behave when in the presence of Mountain gorillas and your hopes of the activity. Once this is done, you will be assigned to the gorilla’s family. Meanwhile, you will then be moved to the group to start the 2-4 hours walk in the thick forest to search for the allocated gorilla family.

However, the walk is used to being difficult and it will involve going through muddy trails, scratching and misty vegetation but the face to face meeting with the mountain gorillas and spending one hour with them is rewarding. Afterward, return to the Lodge for lunch and relaxation.

Similarly, you will then head for an evening walk to the nearby Batwa people to have an insight on how they lived in the forest before eviction. Not only that-but also, to see their traditional houses, some of the plants used for medicinal purposes, and how they used sticks to make fire and be entertained in their traditional dances.

Departure back to Kampala:

Afterward your breakfast, you will then leave for Kampala or Entebbe. However, this 8-11 hours trip involves one pause in Mbarara Town for lunch, once done head straight to Kampala or Entebbe Airport for your return flight.
