Drive to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, home of the Gorillas. The drive takes you through the southern sector of Queen Elisabeth National Park with chances of seeing the tree-climbing lions. This depends on where gorilla trekking will take place. Accommodation: Buhoma Community Rest Camp/ Rushaga Gorilla Camp (3 nights). Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
The Gorilla experience day is here. After breakfast, you are briefed on how to behave when with the Gorillas by a ranger. Dressed properly with hiking shoes, you set off with a ranger to the place where the trackers have located the amazing apes. You can also hire a porter at a small fee to help carrying your rucksack for ease of movement. Meeting the Gorillas is an amazing experience. Since we are all different, our reactions will also vary. But trust me; it is a wonderful one hour experience. Relax in the afternoon.
You can as well go for another Gorilla Experience (optional) or undertake a village walk outside the national park. In the village walk, you will have a chance to visit a traditional healer, see how banana brewing is done, how coffee is harvested, pygmies will also demonstrate for you how they lived earlier in the forest.
Drive to Lake Bunyonyi in Kabale. It has around 29 Islands and is said to be the deepest lake in Uganda, and second deepest in Africa. A boat trip around a few Islands is rewarding. Accommodation: Bird's Nest Resort. Bed & Breakfast
Drive to Lake Mburo National Park and experience a boat trip on the lake in the afternoon. Here, you will see hippos and crocodiles, and the African fish eagles among other bird species. The Vervet monkey is not a rarity here. Accommodation: Rwakobo Rock (2 nights). Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
It’s time to get out of the car and experience nature and wildlife on a walking safari with a ranger. Imagine observing animals without noise from the car engine! The night game drive is one of a kind, allowing you to see other animals that are active when it gets dark. These animals include the Bush babies, genets, white-tailed mongoose and a leopard (with luck) among others.
Say bye to nature by driving back to Entebbe. Stop at the Equator to experience the water experiment on both sides of the equator. There are many craft shops here for your shopping too. Continue to Entebbe to catch your flight back home. Climax Nature Experience wishes you a safe journey!
