For those interested in a fantastic Uganda safari who enjoy wildlife and the outdoors, this is a perfect schedule. You will have the chance to see the national parks of Bwindi Impenetrable, Kibale, and Queen Elizabeth. The tour can be customized so that you begin your journey in Kigali, Rwanda, but it typically departs from Kampala or Entebbe in Uganda.

7 Days Uganda Safari, a halt is made in Kibale National Park to start the tour. Kibale Forest is frequently referred to as the “primate’s capital of the world” because to the 13 different kinds of primates that live there. There isn’t a finer site to see primates than here. It would rank among the most popular African wildlife conservation locations if it housed gorillas. The Bigodi Wetlands reserve is another stop on the safari in Kibale, where you can go bird watching and see more primates. The travel to Queen Elizabeth National Park continues from Kibale. It is Uganda’s most popular and most picturesque park by nature. Unlike the Serengeti, Queen Elizabeth enjoys plentiful rain for much of the year. Crater lakes, forests, and a variety of other natural features that you’ll see throughout your stay, these iconic features were created by earth movements and volcanic eruptions. With the unusual tree climbing lions in Ishasha, Queen Elizabeth is home to four of the big five species. Your journey to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park will begin at Queen Elizabeth. Bwindi is the top gorilla trekking location and a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its tremendous biodiversity. The gorillas are not the only animals that live in Bwindi; there are also chimpanzees, lesser primates, duikers, leopards, birds, forest mammals, and many other species. You can go on nature walks and visit the Batwa pygmies in Bwindi while you’re there gorilla tracking.

By the end of this seven-day safari through Uganda’s wildlife, you will have seen a lot of amazing locations that make the country Pearl of African pearl. Our 6 day Uganda safari trip or the 5 day Uganda wildlife tour package are both options if you’re looking for a shorter safari.

Itinary in details

You will be picked up from your hotel very early in the morning by a driver from Dav Safaris to begin the journey to Kibale National Park. Get up early, eat breakfast, and then wait for them to arrive. The 7-day Uganda wildlife safari journey to Kibale National Park is exhausting, but it will be rewarded with breathtaking views of the countryside, national parks, forests, rivers, lakes, sizable plantations, the intriguing Ankole cattle, trading centers, towns, districts, and the perpetually cheerful peasant. You will eat lunch when you get to Fort Portal City, then take a tour of this little but stunning town. The current Ugandan tourism hub is Fort Portal. Along with housing the Toro Kingdom’s administrative center, Fort Port is situated in a region with a wonderful temperature and stunning scenery all year round. The town is perhaps the nicest place to reside in Uganda due to the calm in the city.

Dinner and overnight accommodations will be at the Chimpanzee Guest House, Primates Lodge, and Kyaninga Lodge, respectively (Budget).

You will be driven to the Kibale National Park headquarters following an early-morning breakfast for a briefing on chimpanzee trekking. The briefing, which is conducted by the Park Guides, about the park’s regulations for tracking chimpanzees as well as what to expect. The Park Guides will take you into the forest to find the chimpanzees after the briefing. Trekking with chimpanzees is very different from trekking with gorillas. Compared to gorillas, chimpanzees spend more time perched on trees. Also, their gatherings are louder and more dramatic. Even before approaching them, it is easy to hear their cries from a mile away. They would have noticed your group by the time you arrive. Chimpanzee tracking typically takes three to five hours. You only have one hour to see them during a seven-day safari in Uganda. Take as many images as you can at this period.

You will be taken back to the park headquarters where the company vehicle will be waiting for you after your hour-long visit with the chimpanzees. The driver will transport you to the hotel where you can have lunch and rest. The driver will take you to the Bigodi Wetlands Sanctuary for a nature walk and bird watching later in the day. One of the best places in Uganda for bird watching is the Bigodi marsh. Little monkeys, butterflies, and many other creatures are to be expected.

You’ll get up early, eat a hearty meal, and then check out. To begin the two-hour trip to Queen Elizabeth National Park through the Ishasha region of the park, our guide will arrive and pick you up. You will pass through Ishasha trials where you will sight the Tree climbing Lions. A handful of these lions are also occasionally seen in Tanzania’s Lake Manyara and South Africa’s Kruger National Park. According to researchers, lions have evolved to climb trees to avoid insect attacks. They also use their perch above trees to watch their prey’s movements. Although you might see them on downed trees, lions prefer the robust acacia and fig trees.

Following Ishasha, the driver will continue to take you to your hotel where you can check-in and refuel before the next activity. A nature hike in the Kyambura Gorge is the next activity. Awe-inspiring natural beauties of Uganda include the Kyambura Gorge. Several primates, including chimpanzees, baboons, monkeys, hippos, and birds, can be found in the gorge’s underground forest, which is home to various primates. Besides from unique animals, you may see trees, plants, and birds that have adapted to the gorge’s conditions. Your guide will drive you back to the resort once you’ve explored the Kyambura Gorge.

The early morning game drive will give you the chance to spot nocturnal creatures and predators making their way back to their caves after a night of hunting. Also watch for early birds and other early risers. Hippopotamuses, hartebeests, leopards, buffaloes, and several other birds are more species to keep an eye out for. Immediately following the wildlife drive, the driver will begin the trek back to the resort for lunch and recuperation.

After some downtime, you’ll be driven to the Kazinga Channel for a boat tour. One of Africa’s best birding locations is the Kazinga Channel. Both migratory and resident birds can be seen in great numbers. You will see the majority of the aquatic creatures throughout the boat ride, in addition to lions, leopards, antelope, and primates who are drinking the channel. There are constantly animals bathing or drinking near the river, including hippos, elephants, buffalo, antelopes, and crocodiles.

You should talk to the people now to learn how the salt benefits them and their ancestors. Then, you’ll go on a nature walk in the Maramagambo forest, where you’ll see the bat caves and the pythons that feed on them from a secret platform. There is a good chance of sighting red-tailed monkeys, various primates, chimpanzees (unharmed), pygmy antelopes, and more in addition to bats and pythons.

As you wait for the driver to pick you up, you ought to get up early and place a breakfast order. Around 7:00 am, the driver will pick you up and transport you to the park headquarters for a briefing. You will meet other tourists already and the Rangers who will guide you into the forest during this briefing, which is very significant. The briefing covers a wide range of issues, but the most crucial ones are how to behave around gorillas, what to anticipate, and what to pack when tracking gorillas. Taking into account both your age and general level of fitness, a gorilla family will be given to you. This is due to the fact that certain gorilla populations are farther into the bush, necessitating a longer amount of walking (7 day Uganda tour).

You can get assistance from porters if you have excess luggage. You will follow the park rangers into the bush as they search for primates. It takes two to six hours to go gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Take as many pictures of them as you can once you find them because you only have an hour with them. Mountain gorilla viewing can be fascinating. You can watch them play, eat, groom, or take a nap. Some may approach you out of curiosity, but keep your cool and follow the park guides’ advice at all times.

Once you’ve spent an hour watching the mountain gorillas, you’ll head back to the starting location, where our guide will be waiting for you. Don’t forget to pick up your completion certificate before returning to the Uganda safari lodge where you saw the Batwa people for lunch and rest. Once you’ve had a chance to recuperate, the driver will take you to the Batwa pygmy village. Before being driven out by the government, the Batwa lived in Bwindi Forest as their ancestral home. The authorities made the decision to remove them from the park and relocate them somewhere else. Although though numerous initiatives were made to assist the Batwa in adjusting to life outside of the forest, they have not been successful. Due of their inability to compete with nearby tribes or adjust to life outside of the forest, the Batwa continue to live in extreme poverty. You will discover a lot about their culture and the difficulties they encounter after leading a life of plenty in the forest while you are with them. Expect the tribesmen to perform traditional dances and other acts.

Dinner and overnight accommodations are available at Tarvan Trekkers Bwindi, Bakiga Lodge, and Chameleon Hill Lodge (luxury) (Budget).

This is the last day of the safari, so get up whenever you want, keep it in mind you have to leave. The driver will take a different route and make stops along the way at the Igongo Culture Centre in Mbarara for lunch and the Equator crossing in Kayabwe for pictures. If you have the opportunity, you can go visit the Buganda Royal drum makers to see how enormous drums were made. We wish you had a pleasant stay in Uganda. You’ll be dropped off by the driver to either your hotel or the Entebbe airport.
