5After a substantial breakfast we’ll travel on to Queen Elizabeth National Park for lunch and overnight at Mweya Safari Lodge or Jacana Lodge, both high quality lodge accommodation, all rooms with private facilities.
This afternoon we’ll take the launch trip to explore the Kazinga channel, here we’ll see the scores of hippos, buffalo close to the waterside often elephants and the rare leopard prowling. The bird life on the water is fascinating and abundant.
Dinner and overnight

6After a substantial breakfast, we’ll take a morning game drive in the park. Look out for the prides of lions and herds of elephant. Buffalo, bushbuck and kob are quite common here, but not so common is the spectacular Giant Forest Hog and a sighting is a real triumph!
In the afternoon we’ll visit yet another of the diverse local habitats and take a walk in the Maramagambo Forest, here we’ll look for chimps and other monkeys and visit the bat cave and the outstanding blue lake.
Dinner and overnight at the lodge

7After breakfast we’ll take a tour to Queen Elizabeth National Park’s extraordinary scenic crater lakes area. Mirror surfaced and tranquil, each has its own individual character providing a home for a myriad of creatures travelling on the Fort Portal tea estate area for dinner and overnight.

8Today we’ll visit Kibale Forest of home to an astonishing 12 species of primate and providing one of the highest primate densities in the world. Here, on our guided forest walk, we may find families of chimps and red colobus monkeys chattering and swinging through the ancient forest trees. And the bird life is no less impressive! During the day we’ll visit Bigodi Swamp for its rare and beautiful flora and fauna and encounter a successful community tourist project. In the afternoon, we’ll make the journey to the luxurious Semliki Safari Lodge in Semliki Wildlife Reserve for dinner and overnight.

9Full day at leisure at Semliki. An optional excursion may be available to cruise Lake Albert.
Dinner and overnight at Semliki

10After a substantial breakfast, we’ll leave for the journey to Murchison Falls National Park. Arriving at Paraa, we’ll take the ferry either to the Paraa Safari Lodge or to Nile Safari Camp. Both lodges offer quality accommodation in superbly romantic settings.
The Nile Safari Camp is smaller and provides accommodation in beautiful designed Nile-side log cabins. The safari is more luxurious (marble bathroom) and with extensive facilities. Both are highly commendable.
Relaxing dinner and overnight

11After a substantial breakfast, we’ll make the amazing launch trip to the Murchison Falls, Regent’s Park Zoo and Kew Gardens combined. We’ll pods of hippos, crocs, vast number of exotic birds and butterflies (in Murchison, there are over 300 varieties) and myriad wildlife coming to the water to drink (often including herds of elephants). We’ll maybe see the legendary Shoebill Stork. The fall itself is one of Africa’s wonders-the whole of Victoria Nile bursting majestically through a six metre gap to an awesome forty metre drop.
In the afternoon, we’ll experience our first scenic game drive in the park. Our ranger will help us to view the extraordinary variety of wildlife living here, including Uganda Kob, elephant, lion, giraffe, antelope, a vast variety of eagles and much more.

12After breakfast, we’ll leave our lodge to travel on to Kampala. En route, we’ll view the awesome falls from another angle-the top. We’ll have the opportunity to experience this massive rush of water at close quarters by taking the pathway to the base of the falls-and back!
