Day 2: Kibale Chimpanzee Trek – Drive to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

Our day starts early, with chimpanzee tracking in Kibale National Park, home to an impressive 500 chimpanzees. The dense jungles of Kibale Park are the best place to view chimpanzees in Africa. The chimpanzees are commonly found feeding on fig tree fruits in the game park and have been habituated to humans since 1992. 

Kibale National Park covers 795 km sq and consists mostly of a vast tract of equatorial rainforest. This national park is home to numerous forest wildlife species, boasting one of the highest concentrations of primates in the world. 

The 13 primate species include Black-and-White and Grey Cheeked Colobus, L’Hoest’s monkeys and Galagos, with chimpanzees being the main attraction. In the afternoon we travel south to the Queen Elizabeth National Park, taking in the sights and looking out for game as we drive. 

Our next destination is Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, home to the endangered African Mountain Gorillas, along with a rich diversity of wild animals and plants. Inhabitants include various other primate species, such as the blue and red-tailed monkeys. 

Dinner and overnight at a Community Eco Camp 

Meal Plan: {Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner}


Day 3: Explore Bwindi Forest 

On day three we rise early for breakfast, before the gorilla trek briefing at 8:00 am by rangers from the Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA). 

We then set off on our African Mountain Gorilla Trekking excursion in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Gorilla trekking is the highlight of visiting Uganda. We embark on this once-in-a-lifetime wildlife experience, encountering the endangered gorillas in the wild. 

The guides lead you into the bush, pushing through the undergrowth to track the Bwindi mountain gorillas. This gorilla walk can take up to 6 hours, so a reasonable degree of fitness and a sturdy pair of walking shoes are a must. 

After a rewarding trek through the jungle, we sit in the forest among the mountain gorillas, listening to them communicate with one another. Marvel at the sheer size of the dominant adult male gorillas, called Silverbacks, and experience one of Africa’s most poignant wildlife encounters. After lunch in the forest, we take a well-deserved rest or enjoy some bird watching. 

We return to the community-run safari camp to relax and recuperate after our unforgettable gorilla trek in the Bwindi Forest of Uganda. 

In the afternoon we take a guided walk in the Buhoma Village to gain insight into the lives of the local people, living in the area around the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. The informative village walk starts from our camp and allows visitors to see how resourceful the local people are in their day-to-day lives. 

Dinner and overnight stay at the community eco-camp
