Day 1
Rwenzori Mountains National Park

Depart early morning for western Uganda. The park is set in the western rift valley and runs from the foothills of Mountain Rwenzori to the Ishasha border post in the south. The Park has a vast bird diversity of 611 recorded species, of which there are both endemic and migrant Albertine species. The ride is comfortable with a stop over at the Mpambire drum makers, coffee plantation and the equator. You may go through Lake Mburo National Park at an extra cost (request for it). Proceed to Mbarara for lunch. After lunch drive westwards to Queen Elizabeth National Park, driving past large tea and banana plantations. The drive takes you through some craters along the road and the unique western rift valley escarpment. There are chances of viewing rare animals and birds. The park boasts of a variety of big game like; lions, buffaloes, kobs, elephants, bushbucks, and the rare occasional leopard. Dinner and over night stay at Mweya Safari Lodge/ Jacana Safari Lodge/ Ecology Institute Hostel.

Day 2
Kyambura Gorge

Rise before the sun and drive to Kyambura Gorge for a thrilling Chimpanzee safari. Your guided walk may last three to five hours and in addition to seeing the chimps, the trip may yield sightings of the colobus monkeys, baboons, red tailed and velvet monkeys, and other primates. It is important to note that the chimpanzee safari is subject to availability of permits and good weather because occasional flooding can make the trails impassable. After lunch, have a launch cruise on the Kazinga Channel one that joins Lakes Edward and George. The cruise is a wonderful way to see hippo, buffalo, kob and occasional Nile crocodile (which up until recently did not inhabit this area) and a spectacular bird watching on the water bank. Retire to your accommodation (Hostel/lodge) for dinner and over night.

Day 3
Queen Elizabeth - Kampala

Rise very early for a morning game drive to catch-up with the early risers and predators returning to their hideouts. You will be likely to meet grazing hippos, elephants, lions, spotted hyenas and leopards, bushbuck, water buck and stripped jackal and of-course the comical warthogs. Return to the lodge and prepare to leave for Kampala with lunch enroute. Make a brief stop over at Mpambire Drum makers or at any other crafts display centre along the road, in case you need to buy souvenirs.
