Gorilla Trekking

Mountain gorilla tracking in the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park can be included in our itinerary. An encounter with these rare and gentle creatures is Uganda’s most famous tourism attraction and one of the world’s most memorable wildlife experiences.

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is a few hours’ drive from the baboon safari resort.

 

Safari Drive

The floor of the Rift Valley boasts of a variety of wild life, flora and fauna.

Wildlife on the North Kazinga plains includes elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard, bushbuck, warthog and bush buck. Another common-but unexpected-sighting in this area is the immense Forest Hog, Africa’s largest pig, which is usually associated with dense forests.

The Kasenyi sector on the east side of the Kasese road is best known for the lions which prey on large population of Uganda Kob that live in this area.

 

Bone fire Culture Talk

A great opportunity to explore and enjoy the diverse traditional practices of indigenous tribes in the area, and a unique opportunity to interact with these indigenous people whose rich cultural heritage extends down the centuries.

 

Birding

Uganda has for long been the best kept secret in terms of its rich variety of bird species with over 1,200 on record.

Varied habitats in Queen Elizabeth National support over 612 species of birds – over 60% of the 1,008 species of indigenous and migratory birds recorded in Uganda.

Highlights include the African Fish Eagle, Shoebill, Papyrus Gonolek, Lessee, Martial Eagle, r and Greater Flamingo, White-tailed Lark and Verraux’s Eagle Owl. Forest species including some less common species from the Congo basin can be located in Maramagambo Forest.

 

 Tree-Climbing Lions

The famous tree-climbing lions of the Ishasha sector are found in large fig trees in the remote southern extremity of the park. These tree-dwelling lions prey on the Topi, Uganda Kob, and Cape buffalo which graze Ishasha’s beautiful acacia studded savannah.

 

Accommodation

Accommodation is provided in nine spacious and tastefully designed self-contained grass-thatched cottages, with bath tabs/showers with views to the park, running hot and cold water, equipped with electricity and a private wooden balcony perched over Queen Elizabeth National Park.

All cottages are privately spaced out in a shrubbery surrounding for proper environment conservation. We have a swimming pool, adjacent to the campfire where a local traditional dance is often performed (Banyaruguru troupe).
