This is a 7 days Uganda Camping Safari starting and finishing in Kampala. This safari will take you through Kibale Forest with its thirteen species of primate including the chimpanzee, Queen Elizabeth national park which is an ideal place for game viewing and Bwindi a wonderland for the endangered mountain gorillas.

This camping safari will offer you an opportunity to track the noisy chimpanzee families racing through this verdant forest, as well as a thrilling experience of tracking the few remaining 700 mountain gorillas surviving in the world.

These include large herds of elephants, buffaloes, hippos and water birds from the Kazinga channel as well as the tree climbing lions of the Ishasha region if lucky. From Kyambura you will track the fast moving and elusive chimpanzees from the nearby Gorge. You can also go for nature walks to see birds, monkeys and orchids as well as visiting the local communities to have an experience of their lifestyles, traditions and norms.
