Discover the unparalleled nature and wildlife of Uganda on this trip with a safari through Lake Mburo National Park and an unforgettable gorilla encounter in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. See the traditional Mpigi drum-making and the equator line, discover Lake Mburo with boat ride and game drives, and see the majestic Ugandan gorillas in their natural habitat.
You will be provided three nights of accommodation on this safari. Accommodation options include budget lodge twin or double room, budget lodge single room, superior lodge twin or double room, and superior lodge single room. On the first night of the safari, you will stay in a Lake Mburo eco-lodge, while the second and third nights will be spent in a Bwindi eco-lodge.
You will depart Kampala on Day 1, stopping to see traditional drum making and the equator line before reaching Lake Mburo National Park. You will take a two-hour boat ride to see incredible nature and wildlife, and then wake up early on Day 2 for a Lake Mburo game drive and continue to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. On Day 3, you will experience your unforgettable gorilla trek, and return to Kampala on Day 4.
For conservation reasons, visits to the gorillas are tightly controlled. The following rules apply and must be strictly adhered to:
You will wake up early on this day and get ready to be picked up from your accommodation in Kampala to begin this adventure to the beautiful Lake Mburo National Park. The first stop is at the Mpigi Drum Makers, where you will watch ceremonial drums being crafted using methods passed down through generations.
The next stopover will be at the equator, where you can take photographs on both sides of the northern and southern hemispheres, pick up some souvenirs, or just stretch your legs. You will continue into the Ankole Region of Uganda and onwards to Lake Mburo National Park, arriving in the afternoon.
Next, you will take a two-hour boat ride on the lake, giving you a chance to see some of the incredible local wildlife. African fish eagles and kingfishers perch high on trees that overlook the lake, searching for their next meal.
In the water, there are also large groups of hippos and if you are lucky, you will see the crocodiles that line the shores of the lake. Overnight stay will be in a Lake Mburo eco-lodge. Lunch and dinner is included in this day.
You will wake up for an early-morning game drive in Lake Mburo National Park, with a chance to see newly-integrated giraffes, herds of zebra, buffalo, and antelope. The park also has fierce predators, namely jackals, hyenas, and leopards. For the best authentic experience of Lake Mburo National Park, you will opt to climb Kazuma Hill, which is high enough to see the five lakes and rolling hills of the pristine park. After a late breakfast, you will continue to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. Dinner and overnight will be in a Bwindi eco-lodge. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner is included in this day.
After breakfast, you will take a short drive to the park headquarters for a gorilla trekking briefing. You will then be ready for one of the highlights of this safari. There are 13-habituated gorilla groups spread across the four sectors of Bwindi. Each tourist group is made up of a maximum of ten people who go trekking to find one of the gorilla groups.
An advance group of trackers will locate the gorillas ahead of time and communicate back to your group. The communication between this advance party and your group continues until the gorillas stay in one place long enough for you to catch up and spend time with these wonderful primates in their natural habitat.
Once contact is made with a gorilla group, you will be allowed to observe these incredible creatures for one hour. This strict time limit is to ensure that they do not become too acclimatized to humans. Once the gorilla trek is over, you will return to your lodge for a well-earned rest. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner is included in this day.
You will have breakfast at the lodge and then head off towards Kampala. There will be a couple of places to stop off for lunch before you arrive at the Entebbe International Airport (EBB) in time for your flight back home. Breakfast is included in this day.
This safari will be held at the Lake Mburo National Park and Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda.
Daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner is included in this day.
