Overview

Highlights

  • Enjoy scenic drives with game viewing opportunities in the varied landscapes of Uganda
  • Embark on a forest trek to view habituated chimpanzees at Kibale National Park
  • Choose your activity in Queen Elizabeth National Park, from game drives to launch trips to forest and crater walks
  • Track the endangered mountain gorilla, an amazing experience offered at Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park

Short Description

Embark on an independent journey to see habituated chimpanzees at Kibale National Park, glimpse tree-climbing lions at Queen Elizabeth National Park and track endangered mountain gorillas in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park.

Stride Take

Uganda’s signature safaris are all about tracking rare mountain gorillas, something few travelers will ever experience, and this one delivers with two days in mountainous Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. Tracking may take up to six hours per day (but often less), with an hour allowed for often close-up observation. This trip also includes chimpanzee tracking in Kibale National Park, home to the world’s highest density of primates, as well as more traditional game drives in Queen Elizabeth National Park.  Lodging is in luxurious jungle camps, including the only camp in Bwindi.

Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.

Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive Entebbe, Uganda

Accommodation: Lake Victoria Serena Resort & Spa

Arrive in Entebbe and transfer to your hotel. Nicknamed the “Pearl of Africa,” Uganda shines with stunning greenery, deep lakes, soaring mountains and perhaps the greatest natural treasure of all — half of the world’s last remaining mountain gorilla population.

Day 2: Kibale National Park | Into the Forest

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Kyaninga Lodge

Take a scenic drive through rolling hills dotted with tea estates to Kibale National Park, one of the most varied tracts of tropical forest in Uganda. Known for its 300 bird species and population of chimpanzees, Kibale is home to 11 primate species. You may also spot mangabeys and a vast array of butterflies. Arrive at your lodge amid Lake Kyaninga and the Mountains of the Moon.

Day 3: Kibale National Park | Domain of the Chimpanzee

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Kyaninga Lodge

Rise early this morning and make the short drive to the start of your chimpanzee trek. The chimpanzees feed high in the trees, so binoculars are a must. Barks of baboons occasionally pierce the forest silence as you make your way along the trail. Take a guided walk in the wildlife-rich Bigodi Forest swamp, an excellent chance to view birds, sitatunga, mongooses, bush pigs, otters and bushbucks.

Day 4: Queen Elizabeth National Park | Ugandan Views

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Ishasha Wilderness Camp

Travel from Kibale to Queen Elizabeth National Park, home to a wide array of wildlife, including elephants, hippos, buffalo and baboons. Offering magnificent views of the rift valley, it is also known for its tree-climbing lions. En route to your camp, you may opt to take a boat cruise on the Kazina Channel. Upon arrival at your camp, take in fantastic park vistas and views of the Rwenzori Mountains.

Day 5: Queen Elizabeth National Park | Elephants & More

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Ishasha Wilderness Camp

Set out on morning and evening game drives in this majestic national park. Because the region occupies the main migration corridor between Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, prolific plains game resides here, including topi and Uganda kob, as well as buffalo, hippos and some of the largest herds of elephants in the country. Spotted hyenas are common, and leopards occasionally glimpsed.

Day 6: Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park | Lush Hills

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp

Take a game drive as you leave the park, with views of farmlands and local villages. Check in to your camp, the only one located within Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From this luxurious home base, set off on gorilla treks to track down these magnificent mammals at their most natural, a rare sight experienced by only the most fortunate. An even luckier few might see these placid creatures passing through the Gorilla Forest Camp, as there are no barriers, redefining any close encounter you have ever had with wildlife.

Days 7-8: Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park | Gorilla Encounters

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp

Spend the next two days tracking endangered mountain gorillas and spending up to an hour with these fascinating creatures each day. Return to the lodge with time to relax, or set out on another guided forest hike.

Day 9: Depart Entebbe

Meals: Breakfast

Accommodation: Lake Victoria Serena Resort & Spa (dayroom)   | 

Fly to Entebbe, with use of a dayroom until your connecting flight.

Just sitting in the Nairobi airport after an amazing A&K Safari in Kenya and Tanzania. This experience far exceeded my expectations. The guides were warm, knowledgable, and passionate. and Frankly I teared up a bit when saying goodbye to our Kenya guide, Peter, before heading to the airport. Dr Cornelius, our Tanzania guide, is a veterinarian - he knows the animals outside AND in (he's treated giraffes!). Every hotel was filled with friendly staff. Ever day was filled with surprises. We saw over 10 days seven leopards AND a rhino - some of the most elusive animals. We saw baby hyenas from a few yards away playing. We saw a lion carrying her cub in we mouth. The list goes on. Our guides were diligent and determined to find what we hoped to see. A&K makes this experience even better - you really don't have to think about anything except what time we are leaving in the morning or meeting for dinner at night. Customer service at its best - they live up to their reputation!

Words cannot describe the level of service provided by A&K. I just returned from my trip to South Africa and Zimbabwe, and it was truly a trip of a lifetime.

Every single detail was executed with perfection. The pre-trip documentation was superb, the guides/drivers in each location were so knowledgable and professional, and our accommodations as well as the service provided at the accommodations was beyond First Class. Most of all, our guide was remarkable! Ananda van der Merwe was with us from start to finish, and she made our whole journey even more perfect than we could have ever imagined. She was so attentive, professional, knowledgeable, sweet, caring, thoughtful, patient, accommodating, smart, funny, and MORE!! Anyone traveling to South Africa should request that Ananda be their guide. You will not regret it!

Thank you for an incredible vacation. It was utter perfection from the moment we booked the trip to the moment we arrived back home.

We took a trip to Jordan and Oman planned through our travel councillor and A&K. We chose this upmarket company and certainly had an upmarket holiday. Everything was top notch from beginning to end. We saw all the amazing sights, were given excellent tour guides and the accommodation was 5 star all the way. They included a couple of unusual accommodation choices too such as a rather posh tent in the desert and an Eco tent at the turtle reserve in Oman.
Would fully recommend this whole tour and A&K.

Recently had a holiday booked with Abercrombie and Kent which was so disappointing we left 5 days early and the rest of the family left 3 days early. The way that A&K dealt with the situation and with us as guests was unprofessional and the property manager we dealt with on site was rude and antagonising. We have had numerous holidays with A&K before and never have we had an experience like this. It has been constant excuses and no apologies. We will never travel with them again and have advised our extended family, friends and industry contacts to do the same.
