Gorilla Expedition

Written by 

OVERVIEW

If you watched the movie planet of the apes, you have a fair picture of what a Big Ape looks like in its natural habitat. Seeing it with your own two eyes a different thing all together. This package is adventure and giving back to nature wrapped in one package: it involves hair-raising tracking in thick jungle and all proceeds from permits on this trip go to efforts to conserve endangered primates.

The trip starts in the western part of Uganda with a tour of Kibale Forest National Park. This park is famous for harbouring large populations of chimpanzee and a wide variety of primates. Here you’ll enjoy nature walk, track chimpanzees and learn facts about man’s evolutionary cousins that will amaze you. 

From Kibale Forest, you head south to the aptly named Bwindi Impenetrable Forest where you will meet one of the most magnificent beasts living on this planet. Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is part of a network of forests cresting a range of mountains laps across the south western Uganda, north western Rwanda and Eastern Congo.

This vast of region of thick elevated forest is a true planet of apes, and home to the last surviving population of Mountain Gorilla- the world’s biggest ape, and the highlight of this safari.

Mountain Gorillas are an endangered species of great apes that survive today thanks to a concerted international effort to preserve them. Rwanda and Uganda are the only countries in which they can be seen, with the largest population being found in Uganda.

This 12 day jungle safari is a vivifying expedition of primate tracking in the jungles of western Uganda and northern Rwanda. It is educational, thrilling, and as you sip a cool beverage on your plane back home, you can rest yourself knowing that taking this trip help extend the life of a species threatened with extinction.

FULL ITINERARY

Day 1: Arrival at Entebbe International Airport

You will enter Uganda via Entebbe International Airport where our Chief Experience Officer CEO will be waiting to pick you up. Look out for someone holding a placard with your name. He will welcome you, drive you to your hotel, brief you on what to expect the following day, and help you settle in. If you need any assistance, do not hesitate to ask our CEO.

Optional: Beaches, Uganda Wildlife Education Centre

Day 2: Queen Elizabeth National Park— Game Drive, Boat Cruise

Queen Elizabeth National Park is understandably Uganda’s most popular and most visited tourist destination. The park’s diverse ecosystems, which include sprawling savannah, shady, humid forests, sparkling lakes and fertile wetlands, make it the ideal habitat for classic big game, ten primate species including chimpanzees and over 600 species of birds.

We begin our game drive before dawn in search of the big four. Keep your eyes peeled for prolific world life in the vast savannah grasslands. After lunch, we go for a boat cruise on Kazinga Channel; a great opportunity to see animals, birds, amazing scenery while on water.

Optional:

Day 3: Queen Elizabeth National Park— Tree Climbing Lions

You have probably heard that Queen Elizabeth National Park is the base of the Tree Climbing lions. We will set off with packed lunch on a search for these kings and queens of the jungle among other wildlife as we drive to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park.

Optional:

Day 4: Bwindi Impenetrable Forest— Gorilla Tracking  

Only about 800 individual survive in the wild and more than half of them live in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. It may take anywhere between 1 hour and 9 hours to find these gentle giants but meeting them is the most rewarding thing on earth. You will be allowed one hour with them and then trail back to the base, where you will be transferred to your lodge.

Optional:

Day 12: Kampala— Departure

This marks the end of our safari. We’ll head straight for Kampala and depending on your flight schedule transfer to the airport immediately, check in a hotel to cool your heels, or checkout what Kampala’s night life has to offer.

Optional: Nightlife

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your
    blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two
    pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
