Buy of the Season - Gorilla & Game Budget Safari, Uganda

Gorilla & Game Safari - UGANDA

---NEW--- Budget option / The Gorilla & Game Safari has long been one of our best sellers. Due to popular demand, we have now tailored this package to offer a new budget lodge option in addition to our superior/luxury option.

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest covers an area of 321 square kilometeres and is located on the edge of the Western Rift Valley. This mysterious and awesome forest is true African jungle, and is so called because the dense undergrowth, vines and other vegetation make it almost "impenetrable". Huge trees are festooned with creepers and plants such as mistletoe and orchids. Giant thickets of bamboo thrive in the humid atmosphere and, where sunlight breaks through, the elegant heliconia or lobster claw, spreads its colourful petals. The forest is a sanctuary for almost half the world's population of mountain gorillas, which is the rarest race of gorilla. Activities include a gorilla tracking expedition in the forest. The time taken and the terrain vary with the movements of the gorillas. Once you sight the gorillas, you are permitted to view them for an hour. Observing these great primates is a moving and exciting experience never to be forgotten. 

Queen Elizabeth National Park is located in the western area of the Great Rift Valley, near the famous Rwenzori Mountains, or "Mountains of the Moon" which Livingstone had to cross in his quest to find the source of the White Nile. The park covers almost 2000 sq. km, and includes a remarkable variety of ecosystems from semi-deciduous tropical forest to green meadows, savannah, crater lakes and swamps. There is a wide range of wildlife in the park, including lion, leopard, elephant, hippo, buffalo, hyena, a host of smaller game, small primates and over 500 bird species. Activities include game drives, a boat cruise on the majestic Kazinga Channel, chimpanzee trekking at the nearby Kyambura Gorge, as well as guided nature and bird walks. The remote Ishasha area of the park in the far south is famous for tree climbing lions.
