10 Days Best of Uganda Safari Tour

10 Days Best of Uganda Safari Tour Safari Highlights Include:-

Murchison Falls National Park Game Drive.

The Murchison Falls National Park Game Drive takes place in the Murchison Falls National Park. The main areas of the drive are the Delta, Buligi Peninsula and the southern section which is known as the heart of Murchison. The Delta allows visitors an opportunity to see Lions, while the triangle of grassland in the Buligi Peninsula provides an opportunity to see elephants, buffalo, antelopes, and giraffes. This grassland is bound by the Victoria Nile entering Lake Albert with the Albert Nile flowing out of it. Lions, leopards, and waterbirds along with hippos can also be spotted here. Much of the southern part is populated with dense bush and forest, where lions and giraffes can also be seen.

Murchison Falls Boat Trip.

Launches run from Paraa to the base of the Falls.  The three-hour return journey is for many a highlight of a trip to Murchison. Along the river, there are thousands of hippos, enormous crocodiles, amazing bird life a possible sighting of the rare shoebill. A boat trip from Paraa to the Delta where the Victoria Nile enters Lake Albert offers excellent game viewing and birding opportunities and takes about five hours.

Kibale Forest Chimp Tracking.

The most favorite of Kibale’s walks embark on from the Kanyanchu Visitor Center at 08.00 & 15.00 and lasts 2 to 3 hours. Chimpanzees are the most sought after primate by visitors, but you should look out for the black & white colobus, red-tailed monkey, or the grey-cheeked mangabey. Your guides will be able to show you pittas & different bird species and will give details of the tradition of the plant species within the forest. This walk is for 6 people in a group.

Gorilla Trekking Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.

Wake early for a hearty breakfast to give you the energy needed for gorilla trekking. Before 8:00 a.m., report to the ranger station for registration and a talk by one of the rangers. The guides will then take you through the bush, pushing your way through the undergrowth, to track the gorillas. (Please note this trek can take from 30 minutes to 5-6 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 ‘talk’ to one another, 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.
