Planet Of The Apes

Written by 

OVERVIEW

If you have 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.

Uganda, Rwanda and DRC are the only places in the world where you can do Mountain Gorilla tracking. This vast 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.

If you are looking for a short gorilla safari experience, Rwanda is the place to go. If you are longing for a much longer safari, with lots of variety, Uganda is the place to go. This 12 day jungle safari is a vivifying expedition of primate tracking in the jungles of western Uganda and northern Rwanda.

The trip is educational and thrilling. As you sip a cool beverage on your plane back home, you can rest yourself knowing that your 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: Kampala Tour—Culture

Kampala is one of the friendliest cities in the world. Ticked between hills and swamps at the shores of Lake Victoria, Kampala City stands at 980-1200 metres above sea level and enjoys moderate weather conditions all year with temperatures averaging at 24°C.

The city tour begins at the seat of Buganda Kingdom in which Kampala is located. You will visit the Twekobe— Buganda’s royal parliament; and Bulange— Buganda’s cultural parliament. Here you’ll learn about the history and traditions of the Baganda.

From here you’ll be taken to some of the most prominent buildings and cultural sites in the city, trek through its streets, and get a first-hand view of day time life in the city. If you are up to it, our CEO will be happy to guide you through its nightlife. Kampala is reputed for being the fun capital of East Africa; it has the liveliest night scene in Africa.

Optional:

Day 3: Mubende, Fort Portal— Nakayima Tree, Amabere Caves

Located at the foot hills of the majestic Rwenzori Mountains, Fort Portal is the tourism hub of Uganda, and arguably the most beautiful town in Uganda. The town is sandwiched between rolling hills and mountains, crater lakes and vast tea estates, and is the capital of Toro, the Kingdom with the world’s youngest king.

Our only scheduled stop en-route to Fort Portal is Mubende. Here you will visit the gigantic Nakayima tree—a cultural site of great cultural significance; its rich history extends beyond colonial times to a time when it was the heart of the biggest religious sect in the region- a local Mecca or Jerusalem of sorts.

After lunch in Fort Portal, we will visit the Amabere Caves, a site of cultural significance to the people of Toro, and crown the day with a 2 hour hike to the top of the crater lakes.

Optional: Hiking

Day 4: Kibale Forest National Park— Chimpanzee Tracking

Kibale is the primate capital of the world. Blessed with over 13 types of primates, our major sightseeing today will be the chimpanzees. Visitors are allowed only one hour with the chimps once they have been spotted, but the experience is rewarding. After lunch, we will visit a community project which includes a swamp walk.

Optional:

Day 5: Queen Elizabeth National Park— Game Drive

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. On arrival, we will have an evening game drive.

Optional:

Day 6: Queen Elizabeth National Park— Game Drive, Boat Cruise

Breakfast is early. 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 7: 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 8: 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 9: Rwanda

Also known as the land of a thousand hills, Rwanda is a country of beautiful people and remarkable scenery. While it is famous for its miraculous recovery from the trauma of the 94 genocide, Rwanda’s best kept secret is the beauty of its landscape and a well preserved culture that has integrated effortlessly with modern customs.

This leg of the safari begins in the North Eastern corner of the country at the border between Uganda, Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo. Here you will enjoy the splendour of nature walks in the shadows of Virunga Mountains and be treated to cultural dances to shake off the fatigue of the long drive.

Optional:

Day 10: Volcanoes National Park— Gorilla Tracking

We leave in early in the morning for a trek into the jungles of Virunga to meet Rwanda’s side of the Mountain Gorilla population. You will be allotted a group and ranger guide and return to your lodge in the evening to relaxation.

Optional: Village walk

Day 11: Kigali – Genocide Memorial

Today we visit the rocket-speed developing city of Kigali. We will visit the genocide memorial museum which is a landmark in the history of this country, check into your hotel for the night, and if you’re up to it, have a go at the local social scene.

Optional:

Day 12: Departure

This marks the end of our safari. You will be transferred to the airport for your flight back home.

    I believe what you said made a lot of sense. However, what about this?

    what if you were to write a awesome title? I ain't suggesting your information isn't solid., but what if you added a title that makes people want more?

    I mean Planet of The Apes | Trekking Timmy Safaris is
    a little boring. You could peek at Yahoo's front page and see how
    they create post headlines to grab people to open the links.
    You might try adding a video or a related picture
    or two to get readers interested about everything've got to say.
    Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a little bit more interesting.

    Best of luck for the following!
