Day 1: Arrival & Transfer to Queen Elizabeth NP.
Hopefully, your flight is scheduled for an early morning landing in Uganda. Upon arrival at Entebbe International Airport you will be met by a Home to Africa representative/driver who will welcome you to Uganda – the Pearl of Africa. Thereafter, you will depart for Queen Elizabeth National Park.
Queen Elizabeth National Park is understandably Uganda’s most popular tourist destination. The park’s diverse ecosystems, which include sprawling savanna, shady, humid forests, sparkling lakes and fertile wetlands, make it the ideal habitat for classic big game, ten primate species including chimpanzees and over 600 species of birds.
The journey will take you 6-7 hours. You will have a stopover at the Equator where you will have an opportunity to stand in 2 hemispheres at the same time and take memorial photos. You will continue to Mbarara town where you will have lunch before proceeding to Queen Elizabeth National Park.
Check into your accommodation and depending on the time available you may choose to proceed for an evening game drive or just relax at your lodge in anticipation of the next day’s activities…
You will have dinner and overnight at your accommodation.

Day 2: Morning game drive and an afternoon launch trip on the Kazinga Channel.
Be up early and have your breakfast. Proceed for a morning game drive in the park during which you will see Lions, Elephants, Leopard (if you’re lucky), Bush bucks, Cape Buffaloes, Defassa Waterbucks, Giant Forest Hogs, Uganda Kobs, among others. Return to your accommodation, have your lunch.
In the afternoon you will go for a two-hour boat cruise on the Kazinga Channel which connects Lakes George and Edward and you will surely be fascinated by the concentrations of giant hippos, elephants and crocodiles among others. You will also see many varieties of birds at the water shores.
You will have dinner and overnight at your accommodation.

Day 3: Chimp tracking in the Kyambura gorge plus optional evening game drive.
In the morning, you will go on a chimpanzee tracking in Kyambura Gorge. This gorge in the north of Queen Elizabeth National Park is known to inhabit lots of chimpanzees plus some other animals and birds as well.
After chimps tracking, you will go back to the lodge for lunch awaiting an optional evening game drive. During the game drive, you will like see elephants, hippos, spotted hyenas, stripped jackals, bush-bucks, warthogs and water bucks among other. There are also chances of noticing lions and leopards when they are having their evening walks in search of prey.
Retire from the game drive late and go back to the lodge for a rest as you reflect on your adventure so far...

Day 4: Exit Queen Elizabeth NP for Bwindi Impenetrable NP.
Transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest through the Isasha sector – famously known for its tree-climbing lions’ population. If you are lucky, you will have the chance to catch the sight of the king and queens of the jungle up in the tree. Hoping you get lucky, the sight will be spectacular!
Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is a big habitat for mountain gorillas in Uganda; harboring an estimated 400 mountain gorillas – roughly half of the world’s population, including several habituated groups, which can be tracked. Its mist-covered hillsides are blanketed by one of Uganda's oldest and most biologically diverse rainforests, which dates back over 25,000 years and contains almost 400 species of plants.
With a strenuous day ahead, you will do less on arrival but just check in your accommodation, relax as you prepare for the Bwindi gorilla trekking experience the following day.

Day 5: Go out for gorilla trekking.
After an early morning breakfast, walk to the park headquarters for briefing on the dos and don’ts during this activity and thereafter you will proceed to the gorilla trail. Gorilla tracking normally lasts between 2 to 8 hours or even a day to encounter the gorillas. However, you will be allowed to stay in the presence of these awesome apes for at least an hour. It is advisable that you carry packed lunch as one cannot determine how long it may take to encounter the mountain gorillas.
If time and energy allow, you may take a community walk after the gorilla tracking or just relax at your accommodation, most likely enjoying the sounds and sights of the area. Return to your accommodation (if you took a walk in the community), enjoy your evening, dinner and overnight.

Day 6: Return to Kampala and off to Entebbe Airport.
After breakfast, check out and head out for your return journey to Kampala and eventually to Entebbe with a brief stopover for lunch enroute. Proceed with your journey to Kampala arriving late afternoon (hopefully not too late for your out bound flight) and connect to Entebbe Airport.
Note: We do recommend for a late afternoon/evening outbound flight schedule on this day. See you when next, you visit and thanks for choosing Home to Africa!
