Safari Overview

This 10 Day Uganda Primates & Wildlife Safari starts with a visit to Kibale Forest National Park, the primate capital of the world, to trek the wild but habituated chimps and to see various species of monkeys and birds as well as the beautiful scenic views of the crater lakes dotting this area. The safari continues to Queen Elizabeth National Park for game drives and boat cruise on the Kazinga Channel renowned for its amazing diversity of wildlife, birdlife, and picturesque scenery.
The climax of this Uganda Primates & Wildlife Safari will be an encounter with the elusive Mountain Gorillas in the famous Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park and to interact with the Batwa, a former forest people who used to live in this forest before it was gazetted as a National Park. You will visit Lake Bunyonyi “the Switzerland of Uganda” for canoe rides around the 20 islands protruding from this lake and hike the steep terraced hills encircling it for a scenic view of the stunningly beautiful surroundings whose birdlife is prolific. The Uganda Primates & Wildlife Safari does not miss out on Lake Mburo National Park for boat cruises, bird watching, and walking safaris in the wild; the only park in Uganda where a wildlife safari can be conducted on foot.
