4 Day Uganda Gorillas and Ngamba Chimpanzees

4 Day Uganda Gorillas and Ngamba Chimpanzees

The 4 Day Uganda Gorillas and Ngamba Chimpanzees trip will give you a chance to take a cruise out on Lake Victoria to Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary and have a chance to view chimpanzees and be involved in feeding them. You will also be treated to sights of monitor lizards, birds, and photographic opportunities. From here the next day you will travel to Bwindi Impenetrable national park for an eye-to-eye encounter with the mountain gorillas and local communities.

Day 1- Transfer to Ngamba Island

Wake up in the morning, have breakfast and our driver-guide will get you to the pier where you will get a boat for transfer to Ngamba Island.  Upon arrival at the sanctuary, you will be directed to the visitor’s center where you will be introduced to the project, its history, the residents, and their plight.

On each of the two types of day visits (half-day and full-day), you will receive a personal orientation by a chimpanzee caregiver and view the feeding of the chimpanzees (full-day visitors will view 2 feedings) from the visitors’ raised platform area along the edge of the sanctuary fence. You will do a full day, have lunch on the island, and later in the evening return to your hotel or lodge.

Day 3- Gorilla tracking and community visits

Wake up very early in the morning for your breakfast and pack your lunch. Then drive to the park headquarters, which are a few minutes from your lodge for a briefing by the park ranger on how you need to conduct yourself before the gorillas and as you hike through the park.

At 8.30 am begin hiking along well-established trails in the forest with the guidance of trackers and ranger guides. Gorilla tracking is a strenuous exercise but a rewarding experience after encountering the gorillas. The time to encounter these apes is an hour but the whole activity takes several hours (2-8) depending on their movement in the forest.
