On your way there will be a short game drive at Ziwa Ranch, an area known for its rhinos and served at Masindi.
We reach the top of the Murchison falls in the afternoon. This national park is the largest with about 3800 square kilometers and famous for its scenic beauty and amazing flora and fauna.
Here we may meet Uganda’s beautiful and majestic national bird, the crested crane.
Our well deserved and delicious dinner is served at Paraa Safari Lodge, located at Victoria-Nile. We enjoy the silence and the exciting and strange sounds of what will be our home during the next two nights.
Day 4: Game drive and boat ride on the Albert-Nile
Early in the morning, we start our game drive here in the National Park among lots of wildlife. On the open banks there are palm trees, and myriads of foreign birds in the colors of the rainbow.
Perhaps we are lucky enough to see the squad, this animal’s Formula 1 winner, chase on the plains at a speed of up to 114 km / h.
After dinner at our lodge, the adventure continues with a fantastic boat trip to the magnificent Murchison Falls, where the 50-meter-wide Victoria Nile squeezes through a cliff jumper of just 6 meters.
The case, which is 43 meters tall, gives a violent water cascade with an everlasting amazing rainbow. Our boat trip lasts until sunset, when we return to another fantastic dinner at Paraa Safari Lodge.
Day 5: Kibale National Park via Fort Portal
After breakfast at Paraa Safari Lodge we move through the incredibly beautiful African landscape. The terrain is beautifully hilly, and everything is endlessly green.
We are acquainted with Uganda’s unique long-horned and powerful Ankole livestock as we approach Kibale National Park via Fort Portal.
Then it’s time for lunch – perhaps under the shadow of an acacia tree. Dinner and overnight are all at Primate Lodge.
Day 6: Morning skim pan draw
We start early in the morning with an exciting skim pan draw in the Kibale forest. Kibale National Park is the place in the world that has the highest concentration of primates.
Here, besides the chimpanzees, we also find red and black and white monkeys, olive baboons and many other monkeys, actually twelve different species …
After lunch, we continue to our goal for the day, the Queen Elizabeth National Park, this famous 1,978 square kilometers of savannah, which is to the west bounded by the Ishasha River and Lake Edward (located on the border between Congo and Uganda) and in the east of Lake George.
Now, the game drives while we travel to our home for the next two nights, Mweya Safari Lodge. After dinner, we are so enchanted by the African night and its distinctive sounds.
Perhaps we lean back with a gin and tonic while we listen intensively…
Day 7: Queen Elizabeth – Kazinga Channels
Now we have got the safari song, and early in the morning we go out on game drive, on the constant pursuit of the wildlife.
Here in the Queen Elizabeth National Park, everything from powerful elephants and lions to over 600 different bird species.
There is a wealth of experiences awaiting this savannah, which consists of scattered acacia trees and euphorbia and large forest and marshes with more than ten craters lakes.
After dinner, a wonderfully beautiful and sensational boat trip on the Kazinga Channel, connecting Lake George with Lake Edward awaits.
Here we meet a lot of hippos and buffalo, water buckles and elephants, sometimes even lions and leopards looking down to the canal to drink.
After an exciting day, dinner will be at Mweya Safari Lodge. And after dinner we are loading for new adventures…
Day 8: Bwindi National Park via Ishasha
We head for the Bwindi National Park via the Ishasha sector, where it becomes a game drive with the spaning of tree-lingering lions.
Then we continue towards Bwindi and Ruhija Gorilla Lodge for our lunch. In the evening there is a walk in a rural village, and when we return to our lodge it is time for a delicious dinner.
We have a great view of rain forest-clad hills. Maybe it will be a gin and tonic even tonight when we charge the batteries for tomorrow’s meeting with the majestic mountain gorillas….
Day 9: Gorilla trekking in the rain forest
Today is a big day … After breakfast we drive to the nearby ranger station. Here we get accurate information from the park guard, and now we are ready to get rid of the great adventure.
On our trekking we have the opportunity to see a lot of animal activities. In the area there are elephants, buffalo, leopards, shrubs, eleven species of monkeys, and of course the mountain gorillas.
We zigzag through the rain forest, controlled by scouts sent in advance to track the gorillas. No matter how harsh the trip has been, we forget everything at the moment and face these amazing animals.
The mountain gorillas are shy and friendly animals, and it’s a great experience to sit still and observe these fighters.
After about an hour, we say goodbye to the gorillas and start our journey back to the starting point, back at Ruhija Gorilla Lodge for some relaxation.
Day 10: Lake Mburo National Park
After breakfast, we head for Lake Mburo National Park through the hilly and incredibly lush landscape.
There will be game drive on the road to Mburo, and a late lunch at Mihingo Lodge, our home for the following two nights.
This is an exciting tent lodge in the luxury class that is high on the rocks; with a breathtaking view of the woods…
Maybe we will have a dip in the blissfully located pool before setting ourselves for a fantastic dinner.
Here at Mihingo Lodge we may take an exciting drink, or a glass of ice cold white wine, while we enjoy the atmosphere.
Day 11: Game drive in the morning and boat ride in the evening
This morning it will be the game drive among the acacia trees on the open Savannah in Lake Mburo National Park.
We are looking for some of the many different antelope species found here, for example the largest antelope in the world, the eland antelope.
The area is beautiful, with Savannah, acacia forest, marshes and lakes, and here are lots of exciting, colorful bird species.
We eat a delicious dinner at the amazing Mihingo Lodge, and relax on the private terrace in front of our huge lights, decorated as being the suites.
Later, it will be an evening trip on a boat on Lake Mburo at a quiet pace along the coast. Once again, we enjoy a delicious dinner at Mihingo Lodge.
Day 12: Kampala City Tour
After breakfast, we leave Lake Mburu National Park for Kampala, the capital city where we are to spend our peaceful and quiet night. It was named after the impala toilope.
Day 13: Ngamba Islands, Lake Victoria
Today, it will be a beautiful boat trip on Lake Victoria and a visit to the Ngamba Islands. Our goal is the Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary, run by the UWEC (Uganda Wildlife Education Center).
Just like at Jane Goodall’s Center, you are taking care of chimpanzees that for some reason had a tragic upbringing and to take care of as many of these amazing, endangered animals as possible.
This is a meeting that concerns, and it is nice to know that many good forces interact for the chimpanzees … We return to our hotel to prepare the trip home.
Our amazing safari ends at Entebbe, from where we fly home to our Nordic latitudes.
