DETAILED ITINERARY

Day 1: Relax on the shores of Lake Victoria

Nothing can be more iconic than the intimate welcome that Lake Victoria offers to its visitors. Spend your first day of Uganda Safari by relaxing on the shores of Lake Victoria. Cruise along the river to witness your first African sunset. As the waters reflect red and yellow, you settle into the enchantment of the continent.

Day 2: Kibale National Park: Explore the Volcanic Forests and Spot the Chimpanzees

The first day of your safari was smooth and relaxing but the second day is going to be the opposite. On this day, you are going to explore the imperious volcanic peaks of Uganda’s forests. Watch vibrant colors merging all around, the ochre of the earth and the green of the forest just two. Do not miss to spot the Colobus monkeys watching peacefully from the top of the canopy. You will have a private guide for the day who can take you to the deep and help you explore the forest better.

While exploring the forests, keep your eyes and ears open as in no time you are going to spot the Chimpanzees that reside in the forests of Kibale. Spot them and they will stare back at you.  These chimpanzees are wild as they are still being habituated to human contact by researchers. So, do not try to get too close to them. It is a full-day adventure and the trekking time could be anywhere from one to four hours. So, you will have enough time to gaze at them. Do all this at a leisurely pace for maximum entertainment.

Day 3: A Beautiful River Safari and First Encounters with the Savannah Giants at Queen Elizabeth National Park

No safari is complete without a mesmerizing river canoeing. In the Uganda safari, you will get a chance to experience a beautiful river safari while exploring the Queen Elizabeth National Park

In Uganda. Enjoy a relaxing boat safari that offers sublime encounters with pods of hippos and a chance to admire the wildlife surprise that occurs along the banks of this life-giving waterway. Do not miss to spot unusual antelopes who pass by the river shore to purge their thirst.

Day 4: Witness the Wonder of the Smoke that Thunders - Victoria Falls

Victoria falls is one of the best waterfalls of the world and you will get to see it from the bottom to the top on the day two of your Zimbabwe safari. Once you are done with the morning breakfast, take a self-guided walking trail that runs parallel with the falls. Wander your eyes from a three-seater plane and admire how the Zambezi will pick up speed before disappearing into a canyon that twinkles with exotic colors.

Day 5: Enjoy Safari with the Elephants at Chobe National Park

You simply cannot miss the elephants in this part of Africa. See them closest to your camp and on the highway roads during the road journey to Botswana. Follow their journey to the forest, see them walking in a herd of hundreds of elephants. Follow the paths to see their daily activities. See how the mother elephant walks side by side to the baby elephant. See them bathing, relaxing, and walking into the forest.
