Day3: Morning Chimp Trekking at Kyambura; then leave for Bwindi National Park

Eat breakfast early in the morning and then set off for Kyambura Gorge for chimpanzee tracking. Kyambura is the only place in Queen Elizabeth where you can find adapted chimpanzees. There is also a large possibility of seeing other primates like white and black columbus monkeys, red tailed monkeys, baboons and vervet monkeys (among others). Some of the chimpanzees at the Gorge have been habituated and therefore are used to humans, which means they can proceed with their daily routine even in the presence of people. The whole trek takes about 3-4 hours depending on our luck that day. After lunch, you will be driven straight to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, home of the famous mountain gorillas in Uganda. You will retire to the lodge for dinner and your overnight stay.

Day4: Gorilla Trekking day!

After a very early breakfast, you will gather your packed lunch and report to the park premises for registration by 8:00am. You will be briefed by Uganda Wildlife Authority ranger guides and then start your trek through the bumpy bushes in search of the amazing gorillas. You will see birds, smaller monkeys, chimpanzees and beautiful butterflies along the way. The trek could take 1-8 hours depending on our luck that day. Once you come across these interesting creatures you will be in for a once in a lifetime experience as you watch these primates fight or play with each other. It really is special being with these fabulous, human like primates. You are allowed to be with the gorillas for one hour, and every minute of the experience is worth the time you spent in search of them. As you leave the forest you can choose to partake in an optional activity like a nature walk or return to the lodge.
