Spend the morning tracking the exuberant chimp families in the Kibale forest. Tracking chimpanzees in their natural habitat, as they swing from the branches in the canopy high above the forest floor, is a thrilling experience.
In the afternoon if time allows, explore the Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary. The reserve is abundant with butterflies, plants, animals and, in particular, birds. Spectacular birds like Great Blue Turaco and rare Papyrus Gonolek will be of great interest to birders.
Depart for Queen Elizabeth National Park in morning. What you see depends on the season, but the Kasenyi plains are excellent for sighting lion and large herds of Uganda kob. The Mweya peninsula is one of the best places to look for leopard, which live in the dense, scrubby thickets.
Return to Kyaninga Lodge in the evening for dinner under the African sky.
A short flight takes you to Bwindi, followed by a 2 hours drive to Bwindi Lodge which looks across to the towering trees of the forest. In the afternoon explore the lodge grounds with its clear mountain stream or visit the local village.
Get your camera ready for a full day Gorilla tracking ! Trekking through the steep, densely forested hills and then finally coming across the gorillas camouflaged in the vegetation is an inspiring and privileged moment. Tracking in the Bwindi forest requires stamina and can often take most of the day.
Expected to return to Lodge in the afternoon for late lunch and share your amazing experience with other guests.
