Ahmd and our visitors enjoyed a one week Uganda safari earlier this January. With highlights as chimps trekking, boat-cruise on Kazinga channel, searching for tree-climbing lions in Ishasha and gorilla trekking it was an action packed week.
After a night in Entebbe to relax after the flight they started off towards Kibale Forest, known for being home to 1500 chimpanzees and hosting a total of 9 different monkey species. On the next day our visitors headed into the jungle of Kibale Forest to meet the chimpanzees, for sure it must have been a great experience. Next on the itinerary of their Uganda safari was a visit to Queen Elizabeth NP, where they spotted hippos, buffaloes and elephants from the Kazinga channel boat-cruise and went for a morning game-drive in the southern Ishasha sector to look for tree-climbing lions. The regular habit of climbing trees is rare for these big cats, so it is special to see them relaxed on the fig-tree branches in Ishasha.
Ahmd and his team then continued up to the misty mountains of Bwindi that are home to the mountain gorillas. Here it was time for gorilla trekking with a hike through the jungle to the point where the gorillas were and then to spend one hour with them. After the trek Ahmd took our visitors down to beautiful Lake Bunyonyi to relax before the drive back to Entebbe the next day. With the combination of jungle and savanna this week long Uganda safari could really offer our visitors some variation and hopefully an unforgettable adventure.
