We shall later proceed to our final destination Queen Elizabeth National Park right at the floor of the Albertine Riftvalley. This park boosts of the highest biodiversity rankings in the world due to the varied habitats here from the rain forest, wetlands, rift valley lakes, savanna grasslands, woodlands and bushes and thickets.

Queen Elizabeth is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve where people and wildlife share the same habitat and the park is home to a selection of beautiful landscapes from the explosion craters, the rift valley escarpments and lakes, and the views of the snow-capped Rwenzori Mountains. It is also famous of the tree climbing lions of Ishasha in the southern part of this home to over 90 mammals and an average of 612 bird species.

We shall crown our game drive with a visit to the salt lake which has a community craft market for shopping.

 

We shall head back to the lodge for relaxation before lunch and then head to the Kazinga channel jetty for a lifetime experience on this natural water body. The afternoon boat cruise will expose us to several other goodies like the fishing village, thousands of Hippos, crocodiles, Monitor lizard and an assorted list of water birds. Other big mammals come to the channel for drinking and bathing in the hot hours of this Equator centered park.

DAY FOUR: DRIVE TO BWINDI IMPENETRABLE

Very early in the morning after breakfast, you will set off for Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. This is a totally different environment from Queen Elizabeth and on your way you will enjoy scenic views of the Kigezi highlands which will remind you of the movie “sound of music”. We shall arrive at the lodge in Rushaga, the southern part of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Check in at the lodge and relax preparing for your gorilla trek the following day.

DAY FIVE: GORILLA TRACKING

This is a once in a lifetime experience and on this day, we shall head to the park offices for gorilla tracking registration, briefing, and entertainment. We shall trek and penetrate the impenetrable forest and this journey can take us a few hours to a full day experience depending on what nature decides and it’s for this reason that you will take packed lunch boxes. Meeting the gentle giants especially looking in their eyes of the adult females makes one awestruck at how we are so closely related to the gorillas. We shall spend about an hour with the gorillas as they go through their daily activities and then head back at the lodge to enjoy our photos as we meditate about our experience.

Bwindi is home to more than 20 Albertine rift endemics and on your way to see the gorillas, you may land on some of them especially birds like the Handsome Francolin, Regal Sunbird, Bar-tailed Trogon, Strange Weaver, Purple-breasted Sunbird, Rwenzori Batis and Turaco among many others.

Ofcourse you will go back with the gomesi as a gift from the company.

 

After our Gomesi photo shoot prepare for yet another adventure around the park as you visit the indigenous natives-the Batwa. They have lived their entire lives to current generations by hunting and gathering in the forest. The visit to the Batwa invariably involves songs and a dance demonstration, and once the music begins you can’t help but notice that they project a genuine pride in themselves. You shall then return to the lodge for lunch and relax
