 Day 2: At Ndali Safari Lodge

Spend the morning tracking the exuberant chimp families in the Kibale forest. Tracking chimpanzees in their natural habitat, as they swing from the branches in the canopy high above the forest floor, is a thrilling experience.  In the afternoon, explore the Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary. The reserve is abundant with butterflies, plants, animals and, in particular, birds. Spectacular birds like Great Blue Turaco and rare Papyrus Gonolek will be of great interest to birders. The swamp is also home to more elusive animals such as Red Colobus monkeys and Sitatunga antelope. There is also the opportunity to visit local community projects that have been financed by tourism.

The Kyambura Gorge is an extraordinary natural environment and forms a stark contrast to the surrounding grasslands. Here you can track the chimpanzee,  genetically probably the closest animal relatives of humans.

Depending on when you arrive, there may be time to explore the lodge grounds with its clear mountain stream or visit the local village. Overnight stay at Bwindi Lodge.

Day 6: At Bwindi Lodge

After an early breakfast, you set off gorilla tracking. Trekking through the steep, densely forested hills, we finally come across the gorillas camouflaged in the vegetation. Tracking in the Bwindi forest requires stamina and can often take an entire day.  Later, walk through the local village and learn about community projects, such as the Amagara project that assists local farmers and their communities and Bwindi Community. Visit the local hospital which started as a health clinic under a tree but now provides vital medical and educational services to over 60,000 people. Both projects are supported by the Volcanoes Safaris Partnership Trust. Discover the traditions of the Batwa Pygmies and learn about the native tribal inhabitants of the forest. The indigenous people of Bwindi forest, though no longer resident in the forest, still practice many of their traditional hunter-gatherer skills.Overnight stay at Bwindi Lodge.

Day 7: Transfer to Entebbe for onward destination
