Itinerary

Days 1 – 3: A Royal Safari

Arrive at Entebbe International Airport & board a domestic flight to Kasese. You’ll be met & driven to the Queen Elizabeth National Park & Kyambura Gorge Lodge for 3 nights on a full board basis. Game drives, boat safaris & chimp trekking.

The Queen Elizabeth National Park is Uganda’s heavyweight reserve and one of the most bio-diverse in the world. This tour opens with three nights at Kyambura Gorge Lodge, set at the edge of the park and close to the eponymous Kyambura Gorge where you’ll be led by guides in search of chimpanzee troops and smaller primates. But the park’s trump card is that it’s home to hippo, elephant, antelope and tree-climbing lions too. Game drives are balanced with river cruises and forest hikes to deliver an unbeatable wildlife experience, and the bird watching ranks among the best in Africa. Back at camp you’ll have a pool and sundeck to enjoy as well as private views from your balcony.

Days 4 – 6:

Road transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest & check in at Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge for 3 nights on a full board basis. Gorilla trekking, hiking, & community visits.

Making your way by 4X4, you travel through the park’s Ishasha region in search of the tree-climbing lions. Then the landscape changes – savannah gives way to thick jungle and the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park appears. Your accommodation is Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge, an eco-lodge set in the park and specialising in gorilla-trekking expeditions. There are two full days here – one dedicated to your gorilla trek and the other to various tours and adventures in the area. You could visit a Batwa Pygmy community or hike in the forest for butterflies and birds. But the highlight is of course the gorilla encounter – an hour sitting with a habituated gorilla family, complete with watchful silverback and tumbling youngsters.

Day 7: The Journey Ends

Transfer to airstrip & return flight to Entebbe for your onward connection.

It’s a 2-hour transfer from Bwindi Lodge to the Kihihi airstrip and then a 2-hour flight back to Entebbe to connect with your onward flight.

Walter has always been an excellent communicator and has supported us fully

We have been to Africa for 24 of the last 27 years so know a bit about what is involved. Walter has arranged the details for the last couple of years, and has done a superb job. He is always quick to respond and comes up with answers immediately……..no evasive tactics, always head-on!

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver.  We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!

Chris (USA)
It was a safari of a lifetime and exceeded all of our expectations!

Our mom grew up in Central and South Africa so we had visited the continent many times. My sister and I wanted to take our teens and husbands to Africa to experience the magic. We had a limited budget but big and specific expectations and by some miracle Walter was able to manage both.

Heather (USA)
Professional, patient, efficient and responsive. Met all our travel needs and requirements spot on

Communication was excellent – I asked A LOT of questions and did a ton of research myself and Walter was extremely patient with me and very responsive. he was straight forward and extremely professional. Tour itself was excellent – an incredible experience and one never to be forgotten. Everything was spot on.

Best trip I have ever been on. Highly recommend.

Would highly recommend. Safari online asked questions when booking and were efficient and knew exactly what we were looking for in terms of accommodation and animals were wanted to see. Gave advice on a few little extras with no pressure, which we did and am very grateful which make trip even more exciting. Would definitely recommend booking with them.
