Chimpanzee Trekking- Afternoon Boat Trip
Wake-up early morning for breakfast then head to Kalinzu Forest Reserve for an up to four- hour chimpanzee trek with a tracker and guide. The reserve is home to 6 groups of chimps.
In the afternoon, go for a boat trip. This allows you to experience wildlife up close where hippos huff and spray mere feet away, buffalo linger in the shallows and a tremendous variety of birds grace the grasses on the river edge. You will even spot elephants on the river banks coming for a drink and bath. We return to the lodge for dinner. Spend the early evening at the lodge enjoy the pool which is overlooking the kazinga Channel and observe animals from the pool deck.
Morning Game Drive-Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
This morning starts with early morning game drive to the Kisenyi area to look for lion prides and other wildlife. Uganda kobs mate around this area which gives you a chance to see their breeding behavior. Many animals will cross your path. Return to the lodge for breakfast and we exit the park at around 10:00am and depart by road to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park situated in the South Western Uganda. Bwindi Impenetrable Forest comprises 331 sq km of jungle containing both montane and lowland forest only accessible on foot. It has 120 species of mammals, the most famous being the mountain gorilla. There are hiking trails where you can see a variety of birds and primates.

You will trek through thick creepers and undergrowth with your guides to find the gorillas, which can take you between 1-4 hours. The steepy forested landscape is incredibly dense but crisscrossed by numerous animal trails allowing access by tourists. You will have one hour to stay with the gorillas once they are sighted. Afterwards transfer to Lake Bunyonyi, driving through a beautiful part of the country often referred to as “Switzerland of Africa” because of its unique cool weather despite being near the equator. In the evening go for optional boat ride on the lake to discover the scattered islands. Later return to the lodge and rest.
