Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda
In the morning we enter the Queen Elizabeth National Park where we take in awe-inspiring views of the mountains that separate Uganda from Central Africa as well as Lake Edwards and Lake George. The Queen Elizabeth National Park boasts over 500 bird species and 100 mammal species, making it one of the most biodiverse national parks in the world.
Close to the park, we visit the Kyambura Gorge to begin our trek to seek out the chimpanzees. Unlike their bigger cousins, the mountain gorilla, chimps live predominantly in the trees. Nevertheless, the experience of seeing these beautiful creatures in their natural habitat remains an incredible one. We spend another night at the Simba Camp before making our way to Lake Bunyonyi.
Trekking permits will be issued by the wildlife authority in groups of up to 8 people per group.
