Lake Mburo National Park

This 5 day Uganda tour combines a classic safari to see plains game sweeping across huge savannahs of Lake Mburo National Park, with the unique chance to track chimpanzees through the forest of Kibale National Park.

This Uganda Safari & Chimpanzee Trekking Tour departs from Entebbe or Kampala at 0800 hours on day one. From Entebbe, we travel through the outskirts of Kampala, Uganda’s vibrant capital city, before beginning our journey southwest. Along the way, we visit local markets including a drum market.

When we reach the Equator we stop to take photos and test which way water drains from a bath here. We proceed to Lake Mburo National Park in time for lunch and in the afternoon, we proceed for a safari-game run and return in the evening in time for dinner.

On day two, a game drive in Lake Mburo National Park guarantees you herds of buffaloes, zebras, impalas, birds and so much more. You also have the option of exploring Lake Mburo by boat. The boat cruise is an excellent way to watch the animals and birds of the lake, especially the crocodiles and hippos found in abundance here.

Birding enthusiasts can look forward to spotting kingfishers, African fish eagles, and shoebill storks, amongst other waterbirds.

On day three, we leave Lake Mburo National park and head to Fort portal to have lunch en route to Kibale National Park. In the afternoon we enjoy the Bigodi community walk which will lead you to the homes of the local communities who stay near the park. While on this village walk, you will be escorted by a resident with enough information about the culture and norms of different people and their tribes.

Day four 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.

The guided walk offers a great opportunity to learn more about chimpanzees and other primates, along with the various plants, butterflies, and creatures of the jungle. Kibale 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 the rare I’Hoest’s monkey, black-and-white colobus, and Uganda red colobus, red-tailed and blue monkeys, grey-cheeked mangabey, and bush babies.

On Day five, we enjoy an early breakfast and then return to Kampala. We arrive back in Kampala and Entebbe (airport drop-off on request) in time to catch evening flights, bringing this 5 day Uganda Safari to Lake Mburo and Kibale Chimpanzee to a close.
