Day 1: All guests will fly to Entebbe airport, Uganda. Guests will be picked up by our expedition leader. From Entebbe we will drive along amazing landscapes until we reach our first Lodge located at one of Ugandas deepest crater lakes. We will spend one night here before we proceed with our journey the next day
Day 2: We will start the early morning on the next step of our expedition. We will drive through high mountains and volcanic landscapes all the way down to the last refuge of the Mountain Gorillas in Bwindi National Park. The landscape here will blow your mind. We will see the Rwenzori Vulcanos and we can look down into the wide Congo Basin with its active Volcanoes. A view you will never forget. We will rest in a small nice lodge.
Day 3: Today is the big day for us to track the gorillas. We will leave early in the morning and pick up our licenses and rangers. Depending on the location of these gorillas, tracking will start after a short drive. From now a dense rainforest lays in front of us. The chances of seeing the Gorillas are really high but can't be guaranteed. Depending on the location of the gorilla family in the forest, we may need to track them for several hours to reach them so we may be in the rain forest for more than seven hours before we finish the mission in the evening. Therefore guests should be in condition and healthy enough to manage an exhausting day!
Day 4: We will rest a bit longer this morning before we leave again for our track of today. We will cross the rainforest and Bwindi Nationalpark from South to North by foot. This 18 kilometer rainforest trail will give an amazing opportunity to see wildlife and nature of one of the last rainforests left in Africa. We will be picked up by our vehicle at the northern end of the park and then be brought to the Queen Elisabeth Park where we will stay the night in a tented Safari Camp.
Day 5: Today we will go on a game drive and will see some of the last free living Chimpanzees in Africa. This Chimp tracking will take place in a deep canyon right in the middle of the park. This canyon is separated by a river and we will need to find the Chimps in the dense forest. This part of the safari is also quite exhausting but will be rewarded with some amazing sightings. After a few hours we will go on game drive inside the park to see more game.
Day 6: Early the next morning we will again go for a short game drive before leaving for Kibale forest. In the late afternoon we will reach our nice guest house at the border of Kibale forest.
Day 7: Today is the day where we will reach Murchison Falls National Park. This longer journey will lead us via amazing crater lakes all the way up to Murchison Falls where we will stay in a tented safari camp right on the Nile. We’ll get our fishing gear ready and enjoy the fantastic views on offer.
Day 8-12: 5 full days of fishing from morning to evening.
Day 13: Anglers will be taken back to Entebbe via the National Park. We will reach Entebbe in the late afternoon and guests will check-in at the airport on the same day. Depending on flight times, if necessary guests can also stay one night in our guesthouse, in case your plane leaves in the early morning next day.
