Welcome to Uganda. Our guide will be at the Entebbe International Airport waiting to receive you and welcome you to Uganda the pearl of Africa. You will be driven to your hotel in Kampala for an early morning check and rest. You will wake up and have lunch, and then your guide will take you around for a Kampala city Tour. Later retire to the hotel for dinner and overnight because tomorrow the day starts very early as well. Accommodation: KOKI HOTEL KAMPALA OR ENTEBBE HOTEL Meal plan: Dinner

Our Safari guide will pick you up from your hotel very early in the morning to start the journey to Murchison Falls National Park. The hotel will pack breakfast for you. The journey to the Murchison Falls National Park involves passing through several districts and towns including Luwero, Nakasongola and Masindi. Luwero is famous as a former war zone. It is where the current government launched a guerrilla war which eventually led to the overthrow of the government of Tito Okello. Nakasongola has amazing countryside with numerous farms and long-horned Ankole cattle feeding by the roadside. If you haven’t tasted local Ugandan fruits, then you should ask the Guide to stop for you along the road so that you check out some of the fresh fruits on offer. Fruits in Africa are very tasty because they are exposed to more sunlight. You will stop at the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary. This sanctuary was established to protect Uganda’s last remaining Rhinos and help increase their numbers so that they can be reintroduced in the wild. Uganda had Rhinos in most of its national parks but extensive poaching wiped them all out. By the late 1970’s it was almost impossible to catch sight of Rhinos in the wild. While at the sanctuary, you will be in the company of experienced Guides. The Guides will show you around and share important information about the Rhinos and why it is important to protect them. The sanctuary is a large establishment with opportunities for nature walks, primate viewing and birding. After visiting the Rhino sanctuary, you will continue to the nearby town of Masindi for lunch before proceeding to the national park. You will also have a packed Lunch. On reaching the park, you will be taken to view the amazing and famous Murchison Falls from the top or if you arrive early, you will be taken for an evening boat safari on the Nile. After this experience, if there is still time, you will head for an evening game safari drive in the park before your guide leads you to the lodge for refreshment and relaxation as you wait for dinner. Accommodation: Gipiri & Labong or any of the Equivalents Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Wake up very early and take breakfast or have a packed breakfast as you drive for the morning game drive to see animals going out for the day and others retreat to their dens after a busy night of hunting. Murchison Falls National Park has an amazing collection of wildlife. Expect to see hyenas, giraffes, elephants, lions, buffaloes, water bucks and many others. There are more Roskilde giraffes here than in any other national park in East Africa. Birders will be impressed with the variety on offer. This is where you can spot the shoebill stork, ibis, marabou stork, egrets and kingfishers. You may choose to have a picnic along the river banks as you listen to the beautiful sounds of birds and animals like hippos. Once you finish the game drive, if you never did a boat safari yesterday, you will be taken for a safari boat ride. But if at all you did a boat ride yesterday, you will be driven to the top of the Murchison Falls to see the falls from the top. Later on, you will drive out of the national park to transfer to Kibale National Park. You will have a packed lunch along the way.

Accommodation: Kibale Forest Lodge or any of the equivalent Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Wake up Very early to have your breakfast and wait for the Guide to take you to the park office for a briefing. During the briefing, you will be told what to expect and how to prepare for the activity. Tracking Chimpanzees is done in groups. Only 6 visitors may track a chimpanzee group. The Ranger will lead you all the way. The experience of tracking chimpanzees is different from gorilla trekking in many ways. Chimps are very vocal, stubborn and unpredictable. They tend to spend a lot of time on top of trees when compared to gorillas (they prefer to stay on the ground). Chimps are very mobile and you will have to follow them as they swing on top of trees even after locating them. Eventually, they will settle down Chimpanzee trekking in Kibale takes a maximum of three hours. Finding the chimps depends on the season. The chimps tend to move a lot during the dry season as they search for scarce fruits and water. The rainy season is a season of plenty and the chimps don’t need to move out into the forest much they are easier to find without having to move long distances. However, it is important to note that chimps sometimes go out to patrol their territories even during the wet season of plenty In this case; you may need to follow them for longer distances. The great thing about chimpanzee trekking in the Kibale forest is that there are several habituated chimpanzee groups. You can always be assigned a community that is easier to track. While tracking the chimps, expect to spot baboons, Vervet monkeys, Blue monkeys, Red-tailed monkeys, elephants, bush pigs, butterflies and birds you are allowed only one hour with the chimps. This one hour can prove to be even more exciting than when with the gorillas – That is if you can find them in a good clearing and on the ground. You will observe members of the community grooming, breastfeeding, fighting and playing. The rangers know each chimp by name, their history and their position within the group. They will advise you to keep away from certain individuals. Flash photography is not allowed. After being with the chimps for an hour, the Ranger will lead you back to the park Offices. You should find your Guide ready to take you back to the lodge for lunch.

Apart from monkeys, expect to see bush pigs, antelopes and bush backs. The walk is not all about monkeys and animals. The Bigodi swamp is one of the best places for birding in Uganda. If you still need more proof now, then you must visit the Bigodi Swamp. Over 374 bird species are thriving in the wetland including water-thick-knee, hornbills, yellow-billed egrets and Hamerkop. After visiting the swamp, the walk continues to the local villages and homes. The main purpose is to allow you to interact with the people and understand how they make ends meet. You will see them in the gardens, some tending to their domestic animals or cooking food at home. Your Guide should be able to explain to you everything and how their lives are linked to the swamp and Kibale National Park. After visiting the village, you will head back to your lodge.
