Chimpanzee Trekking Adventure



Mountain Gorilla
Chimpanzee in Kibale Forest National Park

We begin our tour on the peaceful shores of Lake Victoria, the largest lake in Africa, then head west to Lake Mburo National Park, an attractive area of rolling bush and grassland set around the lake and its substantial papyrus swamp. As well as an abundant birdlife, which includes the rare and elusive African Finfoot, the park is home to such mammals as Oribi, Burchell’s Zebra and Impala, also Bohor Reedbuck which we are unlikely to see elsewhere in Uganda. After a night here we head west towards the dramatic mountain ranges that lie along Uganda’s borders with the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Rwanda and overnight in a lovely oldfashioned guesthouse in Kabale, close to Lake Bunyoni where we will take a short boat trip to look for otters and enjoy the scenery.
Next we begin the biggest adventure of the tour as we ascend a bumpy, scenic road that takes us up to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, an area of densely forested mountains, ranging from 1,200 to 2,590 metres in altitude, that is home not only to one of Africa’s richest forest floras and faunas, but also to over 300 ‘Mountain’ Gorillas; half of the world’s population! During our 3-night stay at Bwindi, those that wish may choose to spend a day tracking one of the three habituated gorilla families, a physically demanding full day’s trek. The rest of our time at Bwindi will be spent on less arduous forest exploration in search of the attractive L’Hoest’s Monkey and an assortment of unusual birds.


Wildlife in Uganda
Lion by Paul Stanbury

After an exciting stay at Bwindi, we head north to Queen Elizabeth National Park. Situated on the Kazinga Channel between Lake Edward and Lake George, ‘QE’, as it is affectionately known, is a classic east African game reserve incorporating rolling grasslands, craters and crater lakes, tropical forests, papyrus swamps and lake shore, and offers Uganda’s best gameviewing. Great herds of Uganda Kob roam the grasslands, Giant Forest Hog — so shy and elusive elsewhere in east Africa — is bold and uncaring, and Lion and Leopard are fairly common. Along the broad Kazinga Channel, herds of Elephant, Buffalo and abundant Hippopotamus are encountered by boat, together with a wealth of waterbirds that include both White and Pink-backed Pelicans, a variety of herons, storks and waders, and graceful African Skimmers. QE’s spectacular Kyambura Gorge — a deep, forested and isolated chasm in the plains — harbours a small Chimpanzee population, which we will track with the help of a park ranger.
