This 5 Days Uganda Safari will begin and end in Kampala, Uganda, and during that time you will have a once-in-a-lifetime experience as you travel to some of the best national parks in Uganda, including Queen Elizabeth and Bwindi Impenetrable, where you can track mountain gorillas and enjoy game viewing and a boat ride on the Kazinga Channel. The greatest concentration of mountain gorillas may be found in Bwindi. Queen Elizabeth national park is situated near Uganda’s border with the Democratic Republic of the Congo in the country’s southwest. It is the most popular national park in Uganda. The park spans a 764 square mile area (1,978 sq km). The park extends from Lake Edward in the south all the way up to Lake George in the north, with the Kazinga Channel bridging the two lakes. From 2,985 to 4,560 feet (910 to 1,390 m) above sea level, the elevation varies. Along with the Kyambura and Kigezi wildlife reserves, which make up the most diversified environment in Africa, Queen Elizabeth national park is situated in the Albertine area. A region is home to a diverse array of animal, plant, and bird species as well as crater lakes, forests, savannahs, and woodlands. The reason why this park is the most frequented in Uganda may be because to its name, but it is also conveniently located for people taking public transportation.
5 Days Uganda Safari, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is a stunning, lush forest that stretches across the Albertine Rift Valley’s rocky hills. This 331 km2 ancient rain forest is one of the few moist forests in Africa to have survived the last Ice Age and is home to the endangered Mountain Gorillas. The site, according to UNESCO, is a biodiversity hot zone with perhaps the greatest variety of tree species seen in East Africa at that elevation. Moreover, it supports a diverse fauna, including numerous rare butterflies and one of Africa’s richest animal assemblages. The Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park is an Afromontane forest with thick undergrowth of fern, vines, and bushes. There are over 324 species of trees that have been identified here, 10 of which are unique to Uganda. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is situated near to the magnificent Virunga National Park in the south-western region of Uganda, on the country’s border with the DR Congo.
Our drive guide will pick you up from your hotel in Kampala or Entebbe, give you a briefing, and then drive you to the Bwindi forest in the southwest. Make two stops: the first at the Equator to browse the shops and take pictures, and the second in Mbarara to eat lunch. As you arrive in the evening, continue your journey to this spectacular forest, which is home to mountain gorillas and other primate species. After dinner, stay the night.
Accommodation Options; Chameleon Hill/Mahogany springs (Up market)/Gorilla Mist camp (Moderate), Ruhija gorilla friends camp (Budget) Meal plan; Half Board.
After a satisfying breakfast, make sure you have a packed lunch with you so you may head straight to the park headquarters. You can meet other trekkers and receive information on going ape trekking here. The length of the walk depends on the movement of the mountain gorillas at that time; therefore, it could continue for 2 to 8 hours. You will start the trip later under the guidance of park ranger rangers who are educated about these gorillas.
You are urged to wear sturdy shoes, bring plenty of drink, sunglasses, raincoats, and caps. Only an hour will you be permitted to spend with the gorillas. Go back to your resort and unwind. You can choose to rest at the lodge during the evenings or go to the Batwa community, where you can learn a lot about their culture and customs. Stay the night and return for dinner.
