Testimonial

Amazing Voyages kept track of us every day and we cannot explain how important it was to us to feel that we were in very good hands. Every driver and guide was always on time and very gracious and helpful and our every need was taken care of for us. We really appreciate your professionalism.

The Plaza Grande in Quito is absolutely fabulous, the Royal Palm in the Galapagos is the best hotel we ever stayed in; the chef is outstanding, his meals are some of the best we ever had. Did you know that Prince Charles stayed there when he visited the islands? We are sure that the service we received was just as good as his. We had a marvelous time in the Galapagos and it was living a dream.

Special Interest Tours 4 - Gorillas Queen Elizabeth NP and Chimps


7 days/ 6 nightsKibale Forest - Chimp Walk - Queen Elizabeth N.P. - Kisoro - Kampala

ITINERARY
Day 1 - Kibale Forest
Early morning pick up from your hotel or guesthouse and leave for Kibale Forest. In the afternoon we will arrive at the Chimpanzee Guesthouse, overlooking Nyabikere Crater Lake, where we will stay. The lake is famous for the frogs: at night they always give a beautiful concert. Overnight at Primate Lodge and Bandas (self-contained) or Chimpanzee Guesthouse/Bandas (self-contained - just outside the forest). Sometimes we also stay directly in Kibale Forest, sleeping with the sounds of the tropical rainforest.

Day 2 - Chimp Walk
At 8.00am we will start with the 4 hour chimp walk - during which you may also get to see 10 other primates! Kibale park is also known for all the butterflies and birds. In the afternoon we will walk through Bigodi Swamp (home to a community based project). Overnight at Chimpanzee Guesthouse/Bandas or Primate Lodge/Simple Bandas (self-contained).

Day 3 - To Queen Elizabeth NP
Early morning we will leave for Queen Elizabeth NP. We will travel through Fort Portal and reach Mweya in Queen Elizabeth NP at midday, with a stunningly beautiful view over Kazinga Channel. You will check in at your accommodation of choice and have lunch, and in the late afternoon we will go on a game drive. Overnight at Mweya Hostels (toilet and showers are shared).

Day 4 - To Queen Elizabeth NP
This day is for a game drive on the plains of Queen Elizabeth NP, with thousands of Ugandan kobs, lions, elephants etc. Also on the programme is a two hours launch trip on the Kazinga channel where we will see all the animals from the waterside. In the evening we will go on a game drive to the mating grounds of the Uganda Kobs. The day ends back at Mweya peninsula, enjoying a great view of the park. Overnight at Mweya Hostels (toilet and showers are shared).

Day 5 - To Kisoro
Early in the morning we will leave for Kisoro. We will travel via Kabale and continue through a beautiful landscape also defined as the "Switzerland of Africa": mountains, lakes, hills with cultivated terraces, tropical rainforest and bamboo forest. On the last hill the landscape unfolds beneath us, taking in the vast planes between Uganda, Rwanda and Congo, with the Virunga volcanoes dominating the view. At the bottom of the valley is Kisoro, where we will stay at the famous Travellers Rest Hotel.

In the sixties the famous American 'gorilla-woman' Dian Fossey visited the Travellers Rest Hotel many, many times to do paperwork, relax or meet people. Fossey said about the hotel: "It was my second home". Travellers Rest Hotel is just outside Kisoro and offers a cozy stay for the tourists coming to see the endangered mountain gorilla. The hotel, built in a somewhat colonial style, and entirely renovated in 1999, has a comfortable ambiance.

Day 6 - Gorilla Tracking
You will travel by car from Travellers Rest Hotel in Kisoro to Nkuringo, in the southern part of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest NP (1hr). Once there you will first receive a briefing and start the tracking. Once you have found the gorillas, you will be able to spend up to one hour with them! You will be expected back to the starting point by 7.00pm at the latest. Being physically fit is recommended. Overnight at Travellers Rest Hotel Kisoro.

Day 7 - To Kampala
Early in the morning after breakfast we will travel back to Kampala. On the way back to the city you will have lunch in Mbarara town, and after Masaka there will be an opportunity to a stop at the Equator for photo shoots and buying souvenirs and have tea or coffee.

End of our services. We will then bring you to a guesthouse, campsite or hotel of your choice in Kampala or Entebbe - or, if you continue your holiday somewhere else or back home, we will bring you directly to Entebbe airport for an onward flight.
