Day 1: Arrive - visit Entebbe transfer to your hotel

Upon arrival at Entebbe International Airport you will be met by a Paradise Africa Safaris Guide/driver who will welcome you to Uganda – the Pearl of Africa. Thereafter, you will be transferred to your booked accommodation for check-in and some rest. Later, you will go out and tour the Entebbe Botanical Garden.
Entebbe Botanical Garden is one of the places around Entebbe where you can spot many species of birds e.g. orange tufted and red chested Sun birds and orange weaver. There is a small ruminate patch of rain forest where Guereza Colobus and vervet monkeys can be observed next to Great Blue and Ross’ turacos, Diederik Cuckoos, Woodland Kingfisher, Black and white casqued horn bill and splendid starling.
It is also a place of tranquility and peace, a feast for the eyes and there is notable absence of people and you simply immerse in nature, the sounds of birds breaking the stillness of the moment.

Main Destination: Entebbe

Accommodation: Lake Victoria View Guest House

Meals & Drinks: Lunch & dinner (Breakfast not included)

Day 2: Go shoebill stork sighting in Mabamba and proceed to Kibale Forest NP

You will have your breakfast at the accommodation and then depart for Kibale National Park. The park is popular for its primate’s population like the chimpanzees, colobus monkeys, mangabeys and red tailed monkeys. On your chimpanzee trails, these are regularly seen swinging in the forest trees and others feeding on the wild fruits.

En route, you will detour for the shoebill stork sighting in Mabamba swamp. This is one of the best and most convenient places to see the elusive Shoebill. The bird is easiest seen in the morning when they stalk their main prey, the mudfish or frogs but may be spotted all day. They may stand absolutely still for long periods awaiting the movements of their prey and then suddenly strike with a marvelous speed. It’s fascinating to watch the behavior of this elusive and endangered bird firsthand in their natural habitat. You will thereafter continue to Kibale Forest NP, arriving late afternoon/evening and then check into your accommodation.

Approximately 5,000 chimpanzees live in the wild in Uganda, which makes it a perfect place to spot them! An experienced ranger will take you chimp tracking in the morning.

The activity begins at 8.00am with a briefing regarding the rules of trekking the chimpanzees after which you set off to search for them in the forest. Once you locate the chimpanzees, you will have a full hour with them. You will return to the lodge for lunch after which you will head out for Queen Elizabeth National Park. You will arrive in the evening and overnight at your booked accommodation.

The afternoon adventure entails a launch trip (boat trip) on the Kazinga Channel, a water stream joining Lake Edward and Lake George.

Day 5: Transfer to Bwindi with en route game drive in Ishasha area

Have breakfast then set off for Bwindi NP through the Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park – famously known for its resident tree-climbing lions. The chance of spotting these lions is about 70% though sometimes they are really hard to spot (most especially when they’re down in the grassland looking for prey). Hoping you get the chance to spot them, the sight will be spectacular!
Continue to Bwindi Impenetrable NP. Bwindi is a big habitat for mountain gorillas in Uganda; harboring an estimated 400 mountain gorillas – roughly half of the world’s population, including several habituated groups, which can be tracked. Its mist-covered hillsides are blanketed by one of Uganda's oldest and most biologically diverse rain-forests, which dates back over 25,000 years and contains almost 400 species of plants.
With a strenuous day ahead, you will do less on arrival but just check in your accommodation, relax as you prepare for the Bwindi gorilla trekking experience the following day.

Day 6: Gorilla trekking Bwindi Forest and Transfer to Lake Bunyonyi for relaxation & sightseeing

After an early breakfast and a briefing by a ranger guide, you will enter the gorilla sanctuary for your adventure. The beauty of this rain forest is spectacular! The area offers dramatic steeply forested landscape and is incredibly dense, but crisscrossed by numerous animal trails allowing access to tourists. The time taken and the terrain vary with the movements of these great primates. Once you locate a gorilla group, you will be allowed an hour in their presence. The thrill of spending time observing these gentle and endangered giants is an awesome, exciting experience to be long savored.

Return to your lodge. Have your lunch and thereafter check out for a transfer to Lake Bunyonyi. Lake Bunyonyi is framed by lush, green-terraced hills that reach a height of (2,200 – 2,478m) but it’s the 29 islands of various shapes and sizes scattered across the water that make it most magical — you could admire them all day.
