Day 1: Drive to Semuliki National Park
After a fantastic breakfast, drive to Semuliki National Park, down to the eastern side of Lake Albert. Situated in the western Rift valley Basin, Semuliki National Park is among the Uganda National Parks with extensive Riparian forests and rainforests with short and high grass Savannah.
It is also well-known for its night game drives, that offer you nocturnal animals, like the white-tailed mongoose and slender mongoose, standard and pennant-winged nightjars, cats, hyenas and leopards.
Semuliki is the only place in Uganda where you can do a spotlit nighttime game drive. The park offers plenty of surprises and you never know what you might come across.
Overnight at Semuliki Safari Lodge or Kanyankyu Ecological site.
Day 2: Semuliki Chimpanzee Tracking
Have a cup of tea before heading to the stunning rainforest for wild chimpanzee tracking. Chimpanzees are habitually tracked at the crack of dawn or sunset, due to the fact that they tend to vanish during the day.
There are also a number of bird species which are found in this charming forest. After an excellent chimpanzee walk, you will relax at the pool in the afternoon or go for game drives, while you watch the sun plunging. Have meals and spend the night at Semuliki Safari Lodge or Kanyankyu Ecological Site.

Game drive en-route from Semuliki National Park. The journey will take you through the attractive green countryside eventually ascending the Western Rift Valley to Fort Portal. You will then continue to Queen Elizabeth National Park. You will reach the Park in the late afternoon and proceed on a nature walk around the Mweya Peninsula, where you are able to spot game like the Uganda kob, bush pigs, bushbucks, colobus monkeys and many others. Dinner and overnight at Mweya Safari Lodge.

Day 5: Game Drive and Transfer Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
Early in the morning prior to dawn, you will wake up for a game drive in the Kasenyi section of the park, to catch a sight of the early risers and predators disappearing to their hideouts.
After the game drive, you will enjoy a late breakfast and drive off to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. You arrive around midday and check in at Gorilla Resort or Volcanoes Bwindi.

This is the climax of your Gorilla Holiday in Uganda. In the morning, take sufficient breakfast to gain the power necessary for gorilla tracking. Before 8:00 am, report to the ranger station for registration and be briefed by one of the ranger guides.
You will trek through thick creepers and bushes looking for Mountain Gorillas, an exercise that could last between one and nine hours. It is marvelous to sit in the forest among the gorillas, looking intently at them, as they complain to each other. It is an extraordinary atmosphere being with these eye-catching human-like animals.
Time permitted with these primates is only 1 hour, as every minute counts. With a free afternoon, you can alternatively take a guided walk out on the Munyaga River trail that leads to three pleasant clean waterfalls with views of epiphytic ferns, tree ferns and orchid’s colorful butterflies.
