11 Days Tour in Uganda



Description

Spanning over 11 days, this Uganda tour is a spectacular choice to cover almost everything that the country has to offer. The glorious Bwindi National Park which is renowned for its gorilla tracking gives you an experience of a lifetime as you watch these majestic beasts at close range. The second largest park in Uganda is the Queen Elizabeth National Park. With plenty of wildlife, birds and an enchanting scenery of the snow capped Rwenzori mountains, it is bound to leave you in awe. At Murchison Falls National Park, lose yourself as you watch the dauntless white Nile explode through a narrow gorge from an outlet of the Lake Victoria and collapse into a mystifying wall of mist, blushing with the hues of the rainbow and drenching you with awe. The Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary allows you to witness the magnificent rhinos in the wilderness for a couple of hours. Consisting of game drives and boat cruises along the Kazinga channel, the adventure wraps up at Kibale National Park after a chimpanzee tracking activity.
