This fantastic offer will bring you close to Uganda's precious wildlife.

Day 5: Queen Elizabeth National Park
After breakfast, we'll travel to Queen Elizabeth National Park. Just before reaching the park we'll have an opportunity to stop at the Equator for a photo-shoot and a view of the crater lakes. After paying the entrance fees at the park we'll begin a 4 to 5 hour game drive through the park. We hope to see lions, elephants, buffaloes, hippos, Waterbuck, Uganda Kobs, antelopes, crocodiles, and many, many species of birds! After lunch in the afternoon we'll board a boat for a cruise of the Kazinga travel (2 hours, 41km) before returning to our hotel for the evening. This will be a day to remember!.

We'll check in at our hotel, have lunch, and then start another game drive tracking the famous tree-climbing lions. Ishasha has four prides of lions that climb trees daily, and are tracked so that Park Rangers can usually find out where they are. The tree-climbing lions are unique in the world! Other attractions in the Ishasha section include Topis, Giant Forest Hogs, Waterbucks, but to mention a few animals.
Accommodation is at river Ishasha Lodge.

Day 7: Driving from Ishasha to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
After breakfast, we'll drive 5-6 hours to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in search of gorillas. We'll travel through a number of attractive villages and catch stunning views of the Western Rift Valley and Mountains. Bwindi Impenetrable Park, aptly named, is a dense jungle where many primate species live. It is one of three places in the world where you can track gorillas!.

It's also possible to arrange a second round of gorilla tracking on this day, for an additional fee.

It's also possible to arrange the game drive at night for the highest chance of seeing the secretive leopards. Lake Mburo is one of the parks in Uganda with zebras, impalas, giraffes, and elands--for this reason we also recommend a hike through the park since there are no lions and elephants to watch out for! For those interested in a more active experience, instead of the game drive a bike-trip through the park can be arranged.
