This safari has been custom designed to showcase one of the our favorite East Africa safari experiences – primate trekking in Uganda. You’ll experience up-close viewing of chimpanzees and other primates in Kibale Forest National Park, and the mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, along with a unique opportunity to learn from lion researchers in Queen Elizabeth National Park. The trip is focused on having the highest quality wildlife viewing, with top guiding and time to view the fascinating behavior of animals.
You’ll begin in Kibale Forest for chimp trekking. Although chimp sightings are not guaranteed, the odds are good with the chance of encountering them standing at higher than 90%. Continue on to Queen Elizabeth National Park for the classic East African savannah landscapes, with a boat cruise included.
For your finale you’ll visit Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. This forest is regarded to be one of the most biologically diverse in Africa and has at least 90 mammal species, including 11 primates. Bwindi is renowned for its Mountain Gorilla population, and slightly more than half the world’s mountain gorilla population is resident in Bwindi: an estimated 280 – 320 individuals living in 15 groups. Gorilla trekking is considered by many to be the most intimate and exciting wildlife experience on the planet. To witness these social giants go about their lives at close distance on foot is certainly a thrilling encounter that penetrates deep into your soul. While trekking can be a challenge on the steep hills of the rainforest, it is well worth the effort and so moving that you will gladly make the trek a second time.
