Day 1

After a short briefing by your safari guide, start for Lake Mburo National Park (the drive will take approximately 3-4 hours). You will have a stopover to look at the Royal Drum makers, stand at the Equator for a photographic opportunity and also listen to some few interesting facts. We will continue to Lake Mburo National Park. This Park is an extension of the Tanzanian plains with big herds of zebra, impala, eland and other ungulates. Bird viewing opportunities are excellent – for birders, this is one of the best places to find African fin foot, papyrus bush shrike. After checking in, you will takea late afternoon game drive or a dug out canoe.

Day 2

An early start – a wonderful chance to take a guided nature walk. This walk takes you to the Salt Lick Area. A strategically located wooden platform (Observation point) offers a chance to see at least four different species of animals at any one point while they lick the salty soil. Return to the camp for breakfast, after which we will head through the highlands to Kabale, where we will stop for lunch. Continue on your journey and make brief stops at places of interests including Kanaba Gap to view the dramatic Virunga Volcanoes and beautiful terraced hills.

Day 3

Up relatively early for a hearty breakfast to give you the energy needed for gorilla tracking in Nkuringo. Before 8:00 am report to the ranger station for registration and a talk by one of the rangers; the guides will then take you through the forest pushing your way through the undergrowth, parting thick creepers, to track the gorillas. (This trek can take from half an hour to 5 hours – a reasonable degree of fitness is required as well as a sturdy pair of walking shoes) Sit in the forest among the gorillas, listening to them grumble to each other, and marvel at the sheer size of the dominant male; the silverback. It is an extraordinary feeling sitting in the dense rainforest knowing you are with a few of the last remaining mountain gorillas. It’s amazing to think there are only about 650 of these beautiful creatures left!

If you have the afternoon free, how about a guided village walk – see how the Ugandans live!
