Uganda holiday tour> Rwanda Ultimate vacation(11days)


uganda vacations, rwanda uganda combined safari packages, holiday tours rwanda and uganda, uganda chimps, rwanda birds

This short safari will take you to the key places of southern-western Uganda: Kibale Forest NP, Queen Elizabeth NP and Bwindi Impentrable NP and Lake Mburo NP. It includes Wildlife, Birds, Gorillas and Wild Chimpanzees trekking in Uganda.The extension to Rwanda will allow you to see the gorillas a second time in a completly different environment.

Day 1
Meet and greet at the Airport by your Safari guide. You will be transfered to your hotel in Entebbe. (D)

Day 2:
After breakfast we drive to Fort Portal via Mubende. This is a long trip to Western Uganda with a break for a pic nic after Mubende. A stop is also foreseen at Fort Portal. After some shopping we will drive another hour to reach the Kibale area (B-L-D).

Day 3:
After breakfast you leave for Kibale Forest renowned for the greatest variety and the highest concentration of primates in East-Africa. The visitors centre of Kanyanchu is 45 minutes away from your lodge. At the visitors centre the rangers are ready to escort different groups of maximum 6 persons. They will brief you about your guided nature walk in the tropical forest in search of the wild chimpanzees. This is one of the great moments of your safari!

The rangers are very knowledgeable and will answer all your questions about the forest and the chimps. Jan Goodall Institute has been assisting Uganda Wildlife Authority with the training of the rangers. A pic-nic lunch is foreseen at Kanyanchu before heading to Mweya QENP via Fort Portal.

On your way to Mweya after leaving Fort Portal, you will have a good scenery of the Rwenzori Mountains. It's during the wet season that you will have the best chances to have a clear view of the Rwezories Mountains. On our way to Mweya you will pass Kasese town and stop at the equator for a traditional picture.

You will entrer Queen Elizabeth NP at the Kabatoro gate and have a short game drive on our way to Mweya which lies on a peninsula. (B-L-D)

Day 4:
The best time for game-viewing is early in the morning! You will take the channel track which runs parallel with the Kazinga channel and we drive slowly towards the Katunguru gate. The channel track is particulrly rewarding with warthog, bushbuck, waterbuck and elephants. There are some chances in the morning hours to see the spotted hyena and leopard. We will cross the Mbarara-Kassese-Fort Portal road and drive to Kasenyi an area near to Lake George which is an interesting gameviewing area. The wetlands surrounding the lake are of international importance protected by the Ramsar Convention

Day 5:
This is the second day of Queen Elizabeth northern sector exploration. After an early morning breakfast we take another track driving to the Kabatoro main gate and we take the Katwe road to visit the Uganda kob mating ground again. In the raining season the area around Lake George is also a very rewarding area to see some birds and to have a nice view on the Rwenzories.

After our morning game we will drive to Katunguru and cross the Kazinga channel to visit Maramagambo Forest which lies on the southern part of Queen Elizabeth. Lunch will be served there by our staff at Nyamusingiri in the forest. After lunch, a time for a guided nature walk into the forest. A ranger will take you to the bats cave to observe the fruit bats and the rock pythons. On the way back you will pass by the Blue Lake which is the smallest lake of the area.

After the guided nature walk we drive back to the lodge along the Channel track for another game drive. There are different circuits available and this is also an excellent time to try out some other tracks for game viewing. Sometimes visitors can see the Giant forest hog. Mweya offers probably the best chances of East Africa to see them because an English scientist habituated them years ago. (B-L-D)

Day 6:
Early wake up because we need to drive to Kyambura WR, a one hour drive from Mweya. You will take the Channel track trying the last chance to see leopard. Kyambura lies in the southern sector of the park and we take the main road to Mbarara and cross the Kazinga channel at Katunguru.

The Kyambura River, about 16 km long, flows into Kazinga channel. On arrival, the rangers will lead us and we drive to the nearest point, where they (rangers) usually know the chimpanzeess are approximately located. The rangers will give you a briefing before descending into the depths of the gorge. The nature walk takes a few hours and lunch will be served at Kyambura fig tree campsite before heading to Buhoma.

Buhoma (Bwindi) is about 4 hours away from Kyambura and you will arrive in the late afternoon for overnight at your lodge.(B-L-D)

Day 7:
Bwindi Impenetrable NP is a natural world heritage site. Hikers will love it, with the gorilla excursion as a high point of your safari!

Gorilla trekking is unpredictable. It's difficult to foresee how many hours you will hike. The gorilla excursion can take from 2 up to 8 hours. Expect to walk along distance in steep and muddy conditions, sometimes with rain overhead, before you encounter any gorillas. A good physical condition is recommended. For conservation purposes, time spent with the gorillas is limited to one hour. A ranger will brief you on how to behave with the gorillas.

Once you are back from trekking before 5 pm, you can be intertained by orphans of the Buhoma village, with their traditional Bakiga dances. For participants who want to contribute to the orphans, we advise them to bring some used clothes or school pensils/pens. (B-L-D)

Day 8:
This is a long day: after breakfast, we depart for Kabale and Kisorro, meandering driving along the Kigezi mountains. Kigezi mountains is another unique scenery for you to view during your trip. Before Kabale we will take to road to Kisorro. We expect to arrive in the afternoon at Kisorro which is not far from Cyanika the Rwanda border. After the formalities it will take us another hour to get in Kinigi. Kinigi lies at the foothills of the Volcanoes. Hotel accommodation at your choice. (B-L-D)

Day 9:
After breakfast, you will depart for the headquarters of the Park where your driver-guide will accomplish the necessary formalities for you. You will meet your ranger guide(s) for a briefing about the greatest animal experience ever!

After assigning your gorilla group Magic Safaris will drive you to the slopes of one of The Virunga volcanoes for your trekking. Your driver-guide will wait for you.

After the trekking, lunch at Ruhengeri and transfer to Kigali. On your way to Kigali, several stops will be made to admire the scenery. Rwanda is the country of the thousand hills! Overnight at your hotel. (B-L-D)

Day 10:
After breakfast you leave for Lake Mburo NP. Aftre crossing the border you shall stop in Kabale for lunch before continuing to Lake Mburo via Mbarara. The arrival is foreseen in the afternoon just on time to have a boat excursion on the lake. For bird lovers this will be the best place to see the African Finfoot in Uganda! Overnight at Mantana Luxury Tented camp. (B-L-D)

Lake Mburo is part of a much larger ecosystem that includes Akagera NP (Rwanda),Tanzania's Ibanda and Rumanyika Game Reserve and rangeland areas north to the Katonga River (Uganda). This eco-system is different from the Albtine rift and explains why you will find here some animals that you have not seen in other parks like Impala, zebra and African Eland. This makes the Park very interesting to be visited

Day 11:
After an early morning breakfast you will have a guided nature walk. A ranger guide takes you on foot to the bush. Lake Mburo is the only place in this part of Uganda where you can see zebra and Impala and itís also the best place to see the African Eland, Africaís largest antelope! You will arrive at Kampala in the late afternoon. (B-L)

Additional services: Depending on your departure flight you can book an additional overnight and/or day excursion
