Gorilla, Chimps and so much more
Our adventure travel in Uganda means you are in for a real treat…. the wildlife in Uganda is some of the best in the world, and Tribal Tracks will plan your trip to maximise the chances of seeing some of the spectacular species the country has to offer.
There are less than a thousand of these endangered and quite rightly, very highly protected, animals left in the world. In Uganda, they can be found deep inside in the thick forests of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. This has to be one of Uganda’s greatest adventures where, after a relatively tough trek, you are rewarded with seeing these amazing creatures in their natural habitat. It will be an emotional encounter. Numbers and permits are limited to ensure as little intrusion as possible into the gorilla communities and we only work with trusted guides to ensure welfare and habitats are protected.
Gorilla Getaway …. a true bucket list experience
This short trip is an excellent way to pack an unforgettable experience into a limited timeframe.
Days 1 & 2 – Fly to Entebbe and transfer to Uganda’s exciting capital, Kampala, for a day’s exploration of a modern African City.
Days 3 & 4 – Fly to Kihihi and transfer to Bwindi National Park for Gorilla Tracking. An emotional, exciting chance of a lifetime.
Day 5 – Fly from Kihihi to Entebbe, spending the rest of the day exploring this lovely, lakeside town.
Day 6 – Fly home after an unforgettable experience.
Chimpanzee tracking and the Queen Elizabeth National Park
Kibale National Park is the heart of primate land. While a chance to see the chimpanzees in their natural habitat is the main draw card, there is also the chance to see some of the other 13 different species of primate the park plays host to, as well as birds, butterflies, warthogs and antelope. If you are incredibly lucky, you may also catch a glimpse of the elusive forest elephant. Your group will head out with our local trackers and guides to follow in the tracks of the chimpanzee, maximising your chances of seeing them. When you do catch sight of them in the canopy of the trees, they’ll give out a sudden loud screech, making you jump, before heading off. It’s simply unforgettable.
From tropical forests to green meadows, savannah and swamps, Queen Elizabeth National Park has it all. It is the home of the famous tree climbing lion as well as elephants, baboons, hippos, buffalo and chimps as well as hundreds of species of birds. In the crater lakes to the north, flocks of beautiful pink flamingos can be found, surrounding the local men and woman who work to extract the salt from the lakes.
We take our teams by boat along the Kazinga Channel between Lakes George and Edward where we can get as close to the many hippos, crocodiles and monitor lizards as possible.
