Go for Early Morning Chimp Tracking At Kyambura
You will have an early morning breakfast and set off for Kyambura Gorge Chimpanzee tracking. Kyambura is the only place in Queen Elizabeth where you can find adapted chimpanzees. Of course there is a big possibility of seeing other primates like the red tailed monkeys, baboons, vavet monkeys, white and black colobus monkeys among others.
Some of the chimpanzees around here have been habituated and therefore are familiar to human beings and can go on with their daily routine even in the presence of people and this can take 3-4hours depending on the luck of the day.
After lunch, your driver will drive straight to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, a territory for the famous Mountain Gorillas in Uganda.
Upon arrival in Bwindi, you will retire to your lodge and relaxation after the long journey.
Today is the high light of your trip to encounter with the gentle giants (gorilla) of the park in Uganda.
After a very early breakfast, along with your packed lunch, you will report to the park premises for registration by 8:00am and be briefed by Uganda Wildlife Authority ranger guides.
You will then start to trek through the bumpy bushes in search for their amazing Gorillas. There is as well a greater opportunity of seeing other species like the birds, monkeys, chimpanzees, beautiful butterflies among others.
The trek could take 1-8 hours but depending on the luck of the day and once you come across these interesting creatures, it is a really an exciting experience watching them protest or playing with each other and it’s really a special moment being with these fabulous human like primates.
The time allowed to be with these gorillas in Uganda is 1 hour and every minute of the experience is worth the time you spent in search for them. As you retire from the forest, you could take an optional activity like taking a nature walk or you can relax at the lodge.
