10 Days Kazinga Murchison & Primates Safari

10 Days Kazinga Murchison & Primates Safari

Queen Elizabeth National Park Safari

This 10-day Uganda safari takes you to the Pearl of Africa for an incredible experience. The highlight of this incredible 10-day journey to Uganda is a chance to see mountain gorillas. You will also visit some of Uganda’s national parks and view all five of Africa’s largest beasts. The safari journey begins in the Murchison Falls National Park and continues via Kibale, Queen Elizabeth, Bwindi Impenetrable, and Lake Mburo.

Standard game drives, stunning waterfalls, and the amazing launch boat along the Nile are what Murchison Falls National Park is most well-known for. It is the biggest national park in Uganda and the finest place to see wildlife. On the other hand, Kibale National Park is maybe the best location in Africa to see primates. Kibale, which is dubbed the primate capital of the world, is home to around 1500 chimpanzees and 12 other primates species. While in Kibale, keep an eye out for birds, various forest animals, incredible crater lakes, and stunning landscapes.

One of the two wildlife conservation zones most frequently visited in Uganda is Queen Elizabeth National Park. In addition to buffalo, elephants, and leopards, it is lion territory and home to many other well-known animals from Africa. Stunning boat tours on the Kazinga channel, lions that climb trees, gigantic crater lakes, and chimpanzee tracking at the Kyambura Gorge are just a few of the park’s other top draws. You will be transported to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park from Queen Elizabeth National Park. Because of its incredible biodiversity and the 500 mountain gorillas that call it home, Bwindi is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In addition to mountain gorillas, Bwindi is home to chimpanzees, forest elephants, other forest mammals, birds, butterflies, moths, reptiles, and a wide variety of other animals. The safari comes to a close at Uganda’s smallest savannah park, Lake Mburo National Park. Despite her diminutive size, Lake Mburo National Park is a fantastic location for spotting wildlife, and birds, and admiring the stunning African grassland. In Uganda, it is also the best location to see zebra and leopards.

Your opinion of Uganda, her people, wildlife, and natural beauty would have been excellent at the end of the 10 Days Uganda Wildlife Safari. Our 11-day Uganda safari package and the 12-day Uganda tour might be more appealing if you want to go on a lengthier safari.
