Day 1

Transfer from Kampala to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

Your first stop will be at the Uganda Equator, which is located along the Kampala-Masaka highway, where you will spend at least 30 minutes taking photos and learning about how the Earth is divided into the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, as well as having the unique opportunity to stand on both hemispheres.

Continue on your fascinating and instructive adventure while admiring the beauty that has earned Uganda the title of "Pearl of Africa," with a stop at the Igongo Cultural Center before lunch in Mbarara (the Town of Milk and Honey). Continue until you reach Bwindi's northern sector, where you will be based.

Meal Plan: Lunch and Dinner.

Travel time: 8-9 hours

Day 2

Mountain gorilla trekking and cultural tour

After a hearty breakfast at the Lodge, head to the Park Headquarters with your trekking gear for a briefing on the dos and don'ts of mountain gorilla hiking. At 8:00 a.m., be transported to the trailhead and begin the trek with other 7 trekkers, porters, an armed ranger, and a guide, which will take approximately 1-3 hours to locate the assigned gorilla family.

When you find the family, your clock starts ticking, cameras start rolling, and information on mountain gorillas starts flowing, and your time with the gorillas is up after 60 minutes. Return to the Park Headquarters for your hiking certificate and subsequently to the Lodge after finding a convenient area to eat your packed lunch.

In the afternoon, go on a community stroll to learn about the fascinating rural life and culture of the people, which will be capped off with an amazing cultural dance. For dinner and the night, return to the Lodge.

Meal Plan: Full board.

Day 3

Transfer to Queen Elizabeth National Park

Check out of the Lodge after a leisurely breakfast and begin your trip northwards into the southern area of Queen Elizabeth National Park.

The Uganda Kobs, buffaloes, and elephants will greet you to the savannah National Park, and you will have the opportunity to view tree climbing lions while traveling through the Ishasha sector (if lucky). Visit the Park's northern part, which is recognized for its diverse fauna and bird species. Arrive on time for lunch, then unwind, have dinner, and retire for the night.

Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

Day 4

Morning game drive and afternoon Launch cruise

Prepare to experience the untamed beauty of Queen Elizabeth National Park with a cup of steaming tea or coffee. Start the game drive at 6:30 a.m. by driving through the park's northern half, particularly the Kasenyi game road, where you'll see elephants, bushbucks, buffaloes, Uganda kobs, Defassa waterbucks, small prides of lions, and leopards. Return to the Lodge for a good breakfast and recover till lunchtime after a 3-4 successful and nature fulfilling wildlife drive.

After lunch, head to the park's most exciting visitor attraction: a launch cruise through the Kazinga Channel, where Nile crocodiles and hippos can be seen just yards from the boat.

Elephants, buffaloes, and Uganda kobs will be observed on the banks of the Kazinga Channel during this boat tour, not to mention the lovely birds that will be spotted on the banks, surrounding wetlands, in the water, or freely flying up into the sky. The best views are from the upper deck of the boat while cruising. Return to the lodge for dinner and a restful night's sleep.

Day 5

Chimpanzee tracking and return to Kampala

Return to the Lodge for check-out after one hour. Leave Queen Elizabeth National Park for Kampala, stopping for lunch in one of the towns along the way and seeing how traditional drums are produced from certain tree species at Mpambire Drum Makers
