6 Day Tour. Mountain Gorillas and Queen Elizabeth National Park. Code (UG01)
5 Nights, 6 Days
Misty Mountain Gorillas - Mountain Gorillas and Queen Elizabeth National Park
There is a lot to see and many fabulous picture opportunities. In the late afternoon we will reach Bwindi in the south of the country for dinner and our overnight stop. We enjoy a well prepared evening meal and a good night’s rest in comfortable accommodation in anticipation of an exciting new day.
Following breakfast you will transfer to the park headquarters for the briefing before you set off through the designated tracks, used exclusively to control our impact on the environment while searching for these impressive and humble giants.
We take packed lunches for the trip as it is difficult to determine how long it will take for us to meet up with these giant primates. The time taken might range between 2 to as much as 5 hours depending on the movement of the primates.
A reasonable degree of fitness is required as well as a sturdy pair of walking shoes. The hike can be quite tiresome, but an encounter with these gentle relatives of man simply erases any thought of weariness and of the walk to get there. They are simply awe-inspiring! We return down the mountain slope for Bwindi, a well-earned dinner and overnight in comfortable accommodation.
The drive will take you through the Ishasha sector of the park, famous for its tree climbing Lions, the males with their distinctive black manes. Reaching the park headquarters in the afternoon we complete the formalities, take refreshments and board a boat for a cruise on the slow flowing Kazinga channel a shallow channel that connects lakes Edward and George. Both of these lakes occur in the Queen Elizabeth National Park and are home to a wide diversity of animals, Birds, Reptiles and aquatic creatures, a huge bio-diversity hotspot not to be missed. The launch cruise will reward you with game such as Hippo, Elephants, Buffalo and a wide variety of birds on the shores.
We return to the lodge for a well prepared dinner and overnight in the Queen Elizabeth national Park.
