Hopefully, your flight is scheduled for an early (not past noon) landing in Uganda. Your guide/driver will pick you from Entebbe Airport and you will hit the road for Murchison falls. The highlights of this park include; the roaring rapids of the Murchison, the rolling plains of Uganda’s largest National Park where you will have the chance of viewing lions, giraffes, hartebeest, buffalo, and elephants. Then surely you will be fascinated by the concentration of hippos and the Nile crocodiles here. For birders, Murchison Falls boasts 450 bird species including the elusive shoebill stork, dwarf king fisher, the white-thigh hornbill, and the Goliath heron among others.

En route, make a detour visit to Zziwa Rhino sanctuary. You will have at least one hour of rhino tracking while here. Another stop will be in Masindi in order to enjoy your lunch. Continue to the park and check in to your accommodation to relax for the Evening.

Day 2: Murchison Falls’ game drive and launch/boat trip to the base of the falls

Stop At: Murchison Falls National Park, Murchison Falls P.O.Box 455, Masindi Uganda
Have your breakfast, depart for an early morning game drive across the rolling plains of Uganda’s largest National Park, where you will have the opportunity of viewing lions, giraffes, hartebeest, buffalo, and elephants. For any birder, this area supports the secretary bird, and black chested snake eagle to name a few. Return to your accommodation for lunch. After lunch you will head out for the boat trip to the base of Murchison Falls where you will also be able to catch sight of more animals including Hippos and Crocodiles and several water birds. Continue with a hike (if you like) to the top of the falls. The hike may be a strenuous one but the thrill on reaching the top is breathtaking. Miss it only if you must. Return to your accommodation and have a relaxed evening.
Duration: 1 day

Meals included:

Accommodation included: Fort Murchison Lodge

Day 3: Go chimp tracking in Budongo Forest including sighting birds

After breakfast, you will be driven through the Ugandan countryside which alone is worth a trip as you go for chimpanzee trekking in Budongo Forest. Also, look out for other primates like the black and white colobus monkeys, red tailed monkeys, baboons and grey-cheeked mangabeys. With over 360 bird species, you will have an absolute bird sighting experience while here.

Your guide/driver will pick you from the accommodation and then depart for Bwindi Impenetrable national park. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is a big habitat for mountain gorillas in Uganda harboring over 300 of them, more reason as to why it should be your next safari destination.
The drive takes you southwest Uganda, cross the Equator, and then to Mbarara for Lunch and through Savannah grasslands to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. The scenic drive through Kigezi Highlands, banana plantations and sight of herds of long-horned Ankole cattle – endemic to this area take you to the gorilla Sanctuary of Bwindi.

Day 6: Go gorilla trekking Bwindi and later transfer to Lake Bunyonyi for relaxation

Stop At: Lake Bunyonyi, Uganda
After an early breakfast and a briefing by a ranger guide, you will enter the gorilla sanctuary for your adventure. The beauty of this rain forest is spectacular! The area offers dramatic steeply forested landscape and is incredibly dense, but crisscrossed by numerous animal trails allowing access to tourists. The time taken and the terrain vary with the movements of these great primates. Once you locate a gorilla group, you will be allowed an hour in their presence. The thrill of spending time observing these gentle and endangered giants is an awesome, exciting experience to be long savored. Return to your lodge. Have your lunch and thereafter check out for a transfer to Lake Bunyonyi. Lake Bunyonyi is framed by lush, green-terraced hills that reach a height of (2, 200 – 2, 478m) but it’s the 29 islands of various shapes and sizes scattered across the water that make it most magical — you could admire them all day.
Duration: 1 day

Meals included:

Accommodation included: Arcadia cottages uganda

Day 7: Depart Bunyonyi for your outbound flight in Entebbe Airport

Stop At: Entebbe, Entebbe, Central Region
Have a relaxed breakfast at the accommodation with spectacular view of the Bunyonyi little islands just right in front of you and thereafter embark on your return journey to Entebbe Airport. Expect enroute stopovers in Mbarara town for lunch and the Uganda Equator line mark in Kayabwe for some memorable photos (if you didn’t stop on the first day) and may be buying some art pieces of interest. Proceed with the journey arriving late afternoon/evening for drop off at the airport.

First, our guide James was awesome. He took care of us and made sure we were comfortable during the entire journey. All of the lodging was adequate. The last two nights at the Gorilla camp and the lake were amazing. The Rhino Sanctuary was only “Ok”. Seeing the Rhinos was fun but the food...

Sedrick was the one organized the tour… he was very clear about pricing, what was included, itinerary, etc. Ben Ndugwa was our tour guide for the entire 7-day adventure, and we couldn’t have asked for a better guide, companion, and new friend. A speaker of English, Luganda, and Swahili, he is a...
