Day 2: Queen Elizabeth National Park
You will spend the full day in Queen Elizabeth National Park. Head out for a morning game drive starting with the Kasenyi Sector of the Park. What you see depends on the season, but the Kasenyi plains are excellent for sighting lion and large herds of Uganda kob. The Mweya peninsula offers excellent game drives with magnificent views across the water to the Rwenzori Mountains. Mweya is one of the best places to look for leopard, which live in the dense, scrubby thickets.
Return to the lodge for lunch and in the afternoon go for Launch cruise along the Kazinga Channel. The Channel is home to one of the greatest concentration of hippo in Africa and herds of elephant, buffalo and other animals come to drink at the water’s edge. The channel is a magnet for water birds, with great flocks of pelicans and others birds on the shore, and a great spot to see African fish eagle.

Day 3: Ishasha- Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
After breakfast proceed to the northern circuit of the Ishasha sector with your packed lunch. You will conduct another Game drive in this sector with chances of spotting lions resting on sycamore trees. After the game drive you will drive for some 2 hours to Buhoma Sector, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.
Day 4: Gorilla Tracking
After enjoying an early breakfast, you set off gorilla tracking. Trekking through the steep, densely forested hills and then finally coming across the gorillas camouflaged in the vegetation is an inspiring and privileged moment. Tracking in the Bwindi forest requires stamina and can often take most of the day. For one hour you are allowed to watch those majestic giants! Depending on the duration of the track you can either relax in the afternoon at the lodge and just enjoy the view or go for another walk around and explore the village.
Day 5: Bwindi to Kampala/Entebbe
After breakfast, you will drive to Lake Mburo to enjoy your free night offer or Entebbe International airport for your International flight.
