Day 3: Lake Mutanda
You will be escorted to the National Parks Headquarters after breakfast to meet your guides for the day for your gorilla trekking experience. An early morning trek into the forest on the slopes of the volcanoes, led by experienced trackers, will bring you amongst a family of Mountain Gorillas. These massive primates are extremely rare, with only approximately 650 remaining. You will get within metres of the family, and be privileged to spend time with them. Time permitting, return to camp for a late lunch with the opportunity for a forest walk with the guides, or just to relax.
This morning we drive to Queen Elizabeth National Park for a day of game drives in the park spotting wildlife.

This morning we drive to Kibale after a morning game drive with the rest of the day to enjoy the region.
This morning you have the opportunity to go Chimp Trekking in the Kibale Forest. The trek not only gives you an opportunity to view these noisy primates, but also to observe this amazing ecosystem including monkeys, baboons, a diversity of bird life and butterflies. Later we make our way back to Kampala through the Ugandan highlands. Enjoy some curio shopping en-route.
