Transfer to Queen Elizabeth for safari

After breakfast, you will embark on a five-hour journey to Queen Elizabeth National Park, 420 kilometres southwest of the capital Kampala. The park is spread across 2,500 square kilometres along the eastern shore of Lake Edward.
Today’s mid-morning game drive will reward you with incredible sightings of Cape buffalos going at each other at a waterhole, magnificent elephant herds towering over the landscape, as well as the famous tree-climbing lions of Ishasha that will give you the proverbial death stare. Lions aside, the Ishasha sector of the park also plays host to topis, Uganda kobs and Cape buffalos.
After lunch you’ll go for a boat ride along the Kazinga Channel, which connects Lake Edward with Lake George. This excursion will offer you the most epic game viewing in the park – sightings of thousands of hippos, buffalo, elephant as well as multitudes of fish-eating birds.
Queen Elizabeth National Park also offers visitors magnificent views of the Rwenzori mountains – with most peaks dotted with giant candelabra euphorbia trees. The Kikorondo area also makes for a photographer’s dream destination, with plains that give way to some extinct volcanoes filled with numerous magnificent crater lakes.

Chimpanzee trekking in Kyambura Gorge

Day 3 will be dedicated to chimpanzee trekking in the Kyambura Gorge. Once you find the chimps, you’ll be allowed to stay with them for one hour, but that one hour will be engraved in your memory for many years to come as an encounter with these species is one of the most poignant travel experiences in Uganda.
Later in the afternoon, a nature walk through Maramagambo Forest will introduce you to bats, pythons and hunters’ caves. You’ll also check out Queen Elizabeth National Park’s numerous magnificent crater lakes before winding up your memorable safari with a visit to the Katwe salt mines for an introduction to salt extraction and cultural encounters with local communities.
