Overview

Start an unforgettable 5-Day Gorilla & Chimpanzee Trekking In Uganda journey through Uganda with Exodus Safaris, where you'll have the opportunity to explore some of the country's most iconic destinations and wildlife encounters. Your adventure begins upon your arrival in Entebbe, where you'll be greeted by our friendly team and transferred to Kibale National Park, the primate capital of East Africa. Here, amidst the lush greenery of the tropical rainforest, you'll embark on a thrilling chimpanzee trekking expedition, tracking these intelligent creatures as they swing through the treetops and forage for food in their natural habitat. Led by experienced guides, you'll venture deep into the heart of the forest, following the calls and signs of the chimpanzees until you encounter them up close.

Next, continue your journey to Queen Elizabeth National Park, a wildlife haven renowned for its diverse ecosystems and abundant wildlife. Set out on a scenic boat ride along the Kazinga Channel, where you'll have the chance to spot hippos, crocodiles, elephants, and a variety of birdlife against the backdrop of stunning scenery. Marvel at the sights and sounds of this natural wonderland as you cruise along the tranquil waters, soaking in the beauty of the surrounding landscape.

The adventure continues with a morning game drive through Queen Elizabeth National Park, where you'll have the opportunity to encounter a wide range of wildlife, including lions, buffaloes, antelopes, and more. Keep your camera ready as you explore the park's diverse habitats, from open savannahs and rolling plains to dense forests and winding rivers.

But the highlight of your journey awaits in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, home to Uganda's famous mountain gorillas. Here, amidst the mist-shrouded slopes of the Virunga Mountains, you'll embark on a once-in-a-lifetime gorilla trekking experience, trekking through dense vegetation in search of these magnificent creatures. As you observe gorilla families in their natural habitat, you'll gain insight into their behavior, social dynamics, and conservation status, leaving you with memories to last a lifetime.

After your gorilla trekking adventure, unwind and relax at Lake Bunyonyi, known as the "Switzerland of Africa," where you can enjoy swimming, canoeing, and birdwatching amidst the tranquil shores and scenic landscapes.
