Itinerary Description:

Begin your Uganda primate safari in the capital city of Kampala, Uganda. Enjoy palatial Tuscan-style accommodations at the Lake Victoria Serena Resort, and venture onto the lake for a peek at the chimpanzee conservation efforts on Ngamba Island.

One of Uganda's oldest conservation areas, Murchison Falls is a beautiful area and is bisected by the Nile, making for good game viewing. During your two days in Murchison, you will stay at the Paraa Safari Lodge, surrounded by astounding views of Murchison Falls. Take guided nature walks in the park or enjoy a quiet afternoon in the landscaped gardens of Paraa. Daily game drives are available and a special cruise is waiting to take you to the foot of Murchison Falls for spectacular sightings of the birds, crocodiles, and hippos.

Continue your Uganda primate safari adventure into the Kibale National Park, staying on the edge of a crater lake in the cottages of Crater Safari Lodge. Two days of your journey have been set aside here and include an exciting primate walk in the park, which buzzes with wildlife and gives you that chance to see and hear the 13 different species of primates.

You will then travel to Queen Elizabeth National Park and the riverside Ishasha Wilderness Camp. Queen Elizabeth is a notable destination for wildlife tours, chimpanzee tracking, and birding safaris. While you are here, take advantage and hop in a game vehicle to see lions, elephants, bushbucks, and the Ugandan kob. Your luxury African adventure safari drive will also include the outstanding scenery along the track leading to volcanic craters at the foothills of the misty Mountains of the Moon. The view is absolutely breathtaking.

After Queen Elizabeth, it's on to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Mahogany Springs Lodge. From this secluded location on the Munyanga River, you will take the next three days to explore the dense forest and its families of habituated gorillas. After early breakfasts, you will go out with guides and rangers to track these gorillas, the journey lasting several hours. Game drives and nearby cultural explorations are also possible, enhancing your enriching visit to this beautiful protected area.

Spend one day exploring Lake Mburo National Park and its varied mosaic of forest and swampland habitats. Here you can enjoy both game drives and boat trips into the wild to see zebras, impalas, elands, topi, and buffaloes. Your Uganda primate safari concludes with a two day stop at the Wildwater Lodge in Jinja, a wonderful end to an incredible journey. You will spend these last two days on one of the Nile's lush mid-stream islands and have the option to end your trip with thrilling white water rafting on the Nile River.
