Excellent Holiday Safari in Uganda to watch the Great Primates!
We had a great holiday visit in Africa visiting Rwanda and Uganda mountain gorillas in volcanoes and Bwindi impenetrable national park. Last year I and my family planned to our daughter Chloe who works in Uganda-Mbale with an American organization that supports rural people to empower themselves by saving through the small micro finances. When we stayed in Uganda after 1 week she suggested to take us on a safari while self-driving and as we still planning we contacted African Jungle Adventures Limited to hire a safari jeep and Stuart the reservation manager answered to us with the several quotations for different car types and according to our budget we decided to go with Land Cruiser Prado with the top up roof and with enough space for leg stretching and space for luggage, we hired this car at $ 80 dollars without fuel and driver but inclusive of comprehensive insurance, unlimited millage and good at fuel consumption.
Our safari started from Kibale Forest National park where we had the full day chimpanzee habituation and here we stayed with the chimps for the full day in the forest experiencing how they eat, live, behave and much more was experienced and we stayed at Kibale Primate Cottages and it was worse our money we paid to Stuart who assisted us to book all the lodges we stayed on our safari. Later on we had to drive to Queen Elizabeth National Park the following day and upon our arrival we took a visit to the undulating amazing Craters and when we reached this of the park memorable experience and photographs we took as many as we wanted, and then later in the evening we transferred to Jacana safari lodge which is situated in Maramagambo forest and it was all fun to stay at this lodge which blends with nature!
It was at this park, where we experienced what Uganda offers as far as wildlife is concerned-on our game drive we spotted variety of wildlife like lions, elephants, buffaloes, leopards, Antelopes, water and bush buck and it was also our great chance to spot the tree climbing lions on our day we crossed to Bwindi impenetrable national park.

After our game drive in the morning, we took the unforgettable boat cruise along the Kazinga channel which connects the Ramsar Lake George to Lake Edward and much more wildlife and birdlife species that were scarce during the game drive were spotted along the shores of the channel.
Then with our visit to Bwindi impenetrable national park was our last amazing destination as we were all eager to meet the mountain gorillas in the mist, after our briefing from the park offices and allocated to our mountain gorilla group which was Rushegura we entered into the forest with our park ranger Twine Nicholas and he was so much informative about the mountain gorillas, and after our short distance walk in the forest we met the mountain gorillas and as the group has young juvenile the group was interesting and a lot of photos and videos was taken and after the one hour allowed to stay with the mountain gorillas we return to the park offices for our gorilla trekking certificates and later to our lodge and then the following day we return back to Kampala with en-route stop at the Uganda Equator for unforgettable photographs and videos.
