Track Gorillas, Chimps and experience Queen Elizabeth NP

from $1,230.00$975.00

Seven days at Queen Elizabeth National Park

What can you do in a week? We have some stress-busting ideas and you will love them.

We will hike through Kibale Forest to observe and hang out with the wild chimpanzees. They have been habituated so they won’t mind some company. We will check out the Uganda Kob’s mating grounds at Queen Elizabeth National Park, take a launch trip(boat-ride) on the Kazinga Channel and watch the abundant wildlife on the waterfront. We saved the best for last: trekking through Bwindi Impenetrable‘s  afromontane forests to track a family of mountain gorillas. Wild enough for you?
