Accommodation: (Isunga Lodge: Moderate) | Meals: Lunch, Dinner | Drive time: Approx. 5-6 hours.

Have breakfast and head to the rangers’ post where you will receive some briefing on the dos and don’ts during
chimp trekking. Thereafter, you will proceed to trek the chimps in the Kibale Forest. An experienced ranger guide will take you chimp tracking (Kibale Forest) and you will be left amazed by the presence of primates here.

Once you locate the chimpanzees, you will have a full hour in their presence. From chimp tracking, you will

head to Queen Elizabeth NP and proceed for a boat trip on the Kazinga Channel. During the trip, the sight of

wildlife including giant hippos, elephants and crocodiles among others will fascinate you. You will also see many

varieties of birds at the water shores.

Be up early, have breakfast and move out for a sunrise game drive. During the drive, you may encounter herds
of elephants, buffalos, lions and leopard (though hard to spot) among others. From there, head to Ishasha
sector in search of tree-climbing lions. Thereafter, hit the road to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Bwindi is
a big habitat for mountain gorillas in Uganda (harbouring an estimated 400 mountain gorillas – roughly half of
the world’s population) including several habituated groups, which you will trek. With a strenuous day ahead,
you will do less on arrival but just check in your accommodation, relax as you prepare for the Bwindi gorilla
trekking experience the following day.

Accommodation: (Bakiga Lodge: Moderate)

Have breakfast and move to the Rangers’ Post to receive briefing. From the briefing, you will enter the Bwindi
Forest for your adventure. The beauty of this rain forest is spectacular! The area offers dramatic steeply
forested landscape and is incredibly dense, but crisscrossed by numerous animal trails allowing access to
tourists. The time taken and the terrain vary with the movements of these great primates. Once you locate a
gorilla group, you will be allowed an hour in their presence. The thrill of spending time observing these gentle
and endangered giants is unforgettable. Return to the accommodation, check out and drive off to Lake
Bunyonyi. The lake is framed by lush, green-terraced hills that reach a height of (2,200 – 2,478m) but it’s the 29
islands of various shapes and sizes scattered across the water that make it most magical — you could admire
them all day.

Accommodation: (Arcadia Lake Bunyonyi: Moderate)

Have breakfast and move out for a canoe trek that will introduce you to Bunyonyi Islands. There will also be a
great time spent on a traditional dugout canoe. Thereafter, embark on a return journey to Entebbe. Expect a

pieces of interest. Proceed with the journey arriving late afternoon/evening at the booked hotel in Entebbe.
