The journey will take you through stunning countryside landscapes with rural settings and local populations. Arrive in Fort Portal for a lunch break.

Begin your day with an early morning cup of tea and an interesting early morning wild game viewing in Queen Elizabeth National Park’s rolling savannah plains. The drive will take you through Kasenyi, which is home to a diverse range of wildlife such as elephants, buffaloes, lions, and waterbucks. Views of an elusive leopard, defassa waterbuck, Uganda kob, side stripped jackal, and oribis, among others, should not be missed. Transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park after the 3- to 4-hour game drive.
The drive will take you through the well-known Ishasha sector, where you will have the opportunity to meet tree climbing lions that lie on the branches of fig trees and will also include a lunch stop. After that, continue your journey to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, where you will arrive in the evening for relaxation, dinner, and overnight at your lodge. Preferred choice would be Chameleon Hill Lodge.
Following an early morning breakfast, you will proceed to the Park headquarters for registration and an early morning briefing on gorilla trekking etiquette in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. After the briefing, you will enter the jungle with your guides to trek through thick creepers and undergrowth in search of the gorillas.
The trek to see the mountain gorillas may take between 2 and 8 hours, depending on the apes’ movements. The densely forested landscape is extremely dense, but it is crisscrossed by numerous animal trails that allow tourists access. Once up close to the apes, you will have one magical hour to view and interact with these stunning apes, as well as take photographs. After an hour, return to the starting point and proceed to your lodge for a late lunch and relaxation. Following your relaxation, you will be driven to the nearby Batwa community for a memorable and refreshing cultural encounter.
A local guide will accompany you to the various communities to see how people have managed to survive through primitive means. You will see how local brew is made from fresh bananas and forest remedies to produce beer and Waragi, as well as enjoy performances by local Batwa women groups. Following that fascinating cultural encounter, you will return to your respective lodge for dinner and overnight.
This is the last day of your 4 days Queen Elizabeth and Bwindi safari. After breakfast, transfer to Kampala. The long drive will take you through rolling winding hills and picturesque southwestern land before arriving at or connecting to the Igongo Cultural Center, which is only 12 kilometers from Mbarara town and offers a traditional thrilling lunch.
Following that, you will make another stop at Uganda Equator Crossing Kayabwe for breathtaking photo shoots and water experiments. After that, continue with the drive until you arrive in Kampala in the evening, when the driver guide will take you to your Kampala hotel or home.
