From here you journey to Queen Elizabeth National Park to stay at Ishasha Wilderness Camp for three nights.

After breakfast you’ll set off to Kibale National Park to stay at the lakeside retreat that is Ndali Lodge. Set amid rolling green hills, the wooden thatch cottages will be your home for three nights. There’s a lot to see and do here! Nearby is the Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary, a community-based conservation project, home to a variety of monkeys and rarely seen birds, including the White-winged Warbler, White-collared Oliveback and Papyrus Gonolek. Queen Elizabeth NP is where the cheeky monkeys are waiting to try and steal your belongings. The sheer number of primates here is huge! The lodge itself has a great relaxing atmosphere, with a lovely pool, sauna, massages, and yoga. So after a full day in the wild you can come home to a little pampering!

Day 5-8 QUEEN ELIZABETH NATIONAL PARK

elephant, ishasha wilderness camp, the complete uganda experience

Your next stop on this Ugandan odyssey will take you to a national park that gives you a more classical safari experience - open plains and big game. Ishasha Wilderness Camp is located in a truly remote and unspoilt part of the park, with a bit more luxury and an excellent riverside setting. The region is famous for its tree climbing lions that can sometimes be spotted in the branches of fig trees! The rooms are spacious and breezy, the guiding is excellent and there’s even more chimp trekking on offer here in a magnificent gorge, as well as gentle river cruises.

Days 8-11 BWINDI IMPENETRABLE NATIONAL PARK

bwindi impenetrable national park, the complete uganda experience

The next day you will travel into Bwindi Impenetrable Forest - a truly stunning place - and stay at Buhoma Lodge for three nights. It’s one of the few lodges actually located in the park, so you can hear the sounds of this ancient forest and really feel a part of it. The rooms are charming wooden chalets perched in the canopy, blending  in with the leafy surrounds. From here you will trek through the Impenetrable Forest to meet some of the last surviving mountain gorillas. The hike can be long or short depending on where the family is on the day, so be prepared for potentially a long day! But when you spend time with our ancestors, it’s one of the most rewarding things you can do. The lodge is excellent, with great food and service. The main focus of your trip here will be gorilla trekking, but there’s much more to do including the rewarding Batwa experience and a wealth of birds and butterflies!
