Famous for wildlife encounter and lion sightings at the park is the Kasenyi plains. Today we have an early breakfast we shall do a morning experiential game drive and try our luck on what nature will give us from the predators, grazers, birds, and other mammals. The network of tracks here make it easy to drive through as we do the search and watch wildlife. This includes elephants, water bucks, Uganda Kobs, leopards, lions, buffaloes, and some of the 95 mammals and 600 birds that are recorded here.

Day 3- Chimpanzee tracking at Kyambura Gorge and transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable National park

The “Valley of apes”, Kyambura Gorge has one community of chimpanzees that are always referred to as the lost chimpanzees. These are habituated for tracking and going down the 100m deep valley for these primates, doesn’t guarantee seeing them because they are always on the move but it is never disappointing. There is a lot of life from old trees, birds, monkey, and hippos that fill the Kyambura River. After tracking, we shall transfer to Buhoma where we shall have an overnight before the gorilla encounter the next day.

After briefing you will be allocated a group that you will go with for tracking. It can be a 3-8 hour tracking day so you will carry packed lunch and enough drinking water. After the tracking you drive back to the lodge and you relax and recover from the hikes. Have overnight and dinner.
