TOUR CODE 005 - QUEEN ELIZABETH NATIONAL PARK (3 days)
DAY 1: Head from Kampala through magnificent hills and lush vegetation. Stop at the equator for photographs and continue to the market town of Masaka for lunch. Enjoy a game drive upon entering the famous Queen Elizabeth National Park. Dinner and overnight at the beautifully situated Mweya Safari Lodge.
DAY 2: A guided walk takes you into the tropical Kyambura Gorge in search of chimpanzees. This hike involves climbing. In this unspoiled environment, birds and butterflies are all around, and you might also see primates. (Note: Chimp trackers must be at least 15 years of age and all persons undertaking activities at Kyambura MUST wear long trousers). After lunch, take a boat cruise up Kazinga Channel, which separates Lakes Edward and George, to view a variety of game that frequent the banks.
DAY 3: After an early morning game drive and breakfast, tour the volcanic area of the park with its many salt lakes and extinct craters. Visit Lake Katwe to see how the local residents collect salt. Return to Kampala by early evening.
NB. Extra nights at Mweya Safari Lodge with excursions are available upon request, or combine QENP with gorillas or chimpanzees in other Ugandan parks.
