Your adventure in the ‘Cradle of the Nile’ begins. You fly out of London and arrive in Doha, Qatar. Your connecting flight takes you to Entebbe in Uganda, where you’ll board an internal flight to Kasese. Once landed you’ll be taken to Ndali Lodge where you’ll be able to relax after your travels, swim in an inviting pool and soak up beautiful views over the volcanic landscape and Rwenzori Mountains beyond.
At Ndali Lodge you’ll be excellently based for visits to Kibale Forest National Park – home to a fabulous display of wildlife including Africa’s largest population of chimpanzees. Alongside qualified guides, you’ll track these playful primates as they swing through the forest canopy. Observing them play, eat and forage at close quarters is a wonderful experience. You’ll also discover the Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary where you’ll find red colobus monkeys, sitatunga antelope and countless butterflies. Bird watchers can expect to discover a range of species, including the impressive great blue turaco, whilst visits to local community projects will appeal to just about everyone.
Stay: Three nights at Ndali Lodge – full board
From the outstanding Kibale Forest area you’ll be driven to an eco-lodge perched high above the Kyambura Gorge, providing magnificent views over Queen Elizabeth National Park.
During your stay you’ll take boat trips along the Kazinga Channel to see the wildlife that basks on the banks and come down to drink. You’ll track chimps in the amazing Kalinzu Forest with an experienced guide and embark on community walks to meet local people. Early morning and afternoon game drives also offer you a chance to photograph lions, leopards, great herds of Ugandan kob and hundreds of colourful birds.
Stay: Three nights at Kyambura Gorge Lodge – full board
Today you set off into gorilla country as your safari takes you into the primeval Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Along the way, you’ll be able to see tree-climbing lions and appreciate the magnificent passing countryside – some of it making for rugged travelling! Your accommodation is comfortable though; you’ll be staying in the only luxury lodge in Bwindi National Park, with unbroken views of the towering forest and river.
Naturally, meeting gorillas in the wild is the main reason for visiting Bwindi. After an early breakfast, you’ll set off through the dense forest in search of these gentle giants. An encounter with a silverback is indeed thrilling, but the park has other attractions too. The birdlife is wonderful and the flora of the forest fascinating.
Stay: Three nights at Bwindi Lodge – full board
