WELCOME TO UGANDA

 

Good day and Welcome to Africa!  Your adventure starts the moment you clear immigration – in the greeting area you will be met by your luxury tour guide and naturalist.  After helping you load your luggage into the Land Cruiser (complete with free Wi-Fi), begin your drive to the center of the capital Kampala.  As your driver expertly navigates the rural roads, he will point out to you some notable attractions and share with you the history of your new home away from home!  Depending on your arrival time to the airport, you’ll have the opportunity to stop in a shopping center, pick up necessities and exchange money.  


After checking into your luxury hotel, enjoy a few hours of rest and relaxation in your suite.  Before dinner, your guide will meet you in the lobby for your first briefing.  During this initial briefing, your guide will show you the maps of the upcoming journey and update you on the latest developments in Uganda. You will have the opportunity to discuss the adventure and ask any questions.  After your briefing, enjoy a gourmet dinner in your hotel’s restaurant – all of your meals are included on this Uganda Adventure tour!

MEET THE RHINOS & ARRIVE AT MURCHISON

 

Start the morning with a delicious early breakfast in your hotel as you set out on your journey to Murchison falls. Observe from your Land Cruiser as the typical African landscape unfolds before you. The women gently rocking their hips from side to side as they effortlessly balance heavy loads on their heads.  The men in the fields or making bricks and charcoal.  The babies, playing and content in front of homes in small villages.  


Your first stop of the day is only a few hours from Kampala.  The Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary is a study in contradiction.  You will enter a high security facility, but inside you’ll find the idyllic African plains that are home to dozens of wild rhinos.  For your very first adventure, join an experienced ranger to track the rhino in these peaceful surroundings.  Today you will get to see the rhinoceros up close – and it’s only the start. 


In the late afternoon, arrive in Murchison Falls National Park. After a delicious dinner watch the sunset over the plains and the river Nile, where tomorrow you will find the next Uganda Adventure.

GAME DRIVE AND CRUISE THE NILE

 

After an early morning breakfast and briefing, set out with your Outskirt Safari guide on your first safari drive.  As the sun rises over the horizon the savanna begins to awaken.  At first, you’ll notice only a few grazers.  More appear and eventually find yourself surrounded by elephants, giraffe and Ugandan Cob. But look closely – the grazers aren’t the only ones here.  The predators are out too, quietly stalking their breakfast.  The earlier you get started, the better the chance of watching a hunt – an incredible photography opportunity.  The early bird gets the shot.  


At noon, as the sun heats up and the animals move slower, travel back to your lodge for a gourmet lunch.  The afternoon adventure on the River Nile is the next stop.

 
The Murchison Falls National Park encompasses the River Nile and the waterfall by the same name. Here, through an opening of only seven meters, the Nile surges into Lake Albert from the height of 43 meters.  A luxury cruise over the river takes you via the calmer waters to the spectacular drop.  On your way to the falls, you will sail past hundreds of hippos (the largest hippo population in Uganda).  The crocodile is here too, waiting patiently for a good dinner.  When you arrive at the falls, you can join an optional hike to the top for even more spectacular views. 


Upon return, enjoy a great meal in the lodge and relax by the campfire as you share your adventures with your fellow travelers, on this third day of the Uganda Adventure by Outskirt Safari.

EXPLORE THE CULTURE & ARRIVE IN KIBALE 

 

After a well-deserved rest and breakfast set out to Kibale National Park.  As you drive the red and winding African roads you will pass tiny villages and small towns.  Gaze out of the window and observe the villagers go about their day.  Today your guide will share more of Ugandan culture and traditions with you.  At midday, stop for lunch.  Far off the beaten path, you will have a chance to experience authentic Ugandan culture and hospitality.  


As you proceed further, your luxury naturalist guide will fill you in on the next adventure.  The Kibale National Park is home to 13 different species of primates, including a large chimp population.  The park encompasses a thick jungle where you will venture tomorrow.  In the afternoon, arrive in the Kibale National Park luxury lodge.  Enjoy an expertly prepared dinner before you join your fellow travelers by the campfire.

TREK WITH THE CHIMPS

 

Today, explore the Kibale National Park on foot as you trek through the jungle in search of the chimp.  Here you will observe more than a dozen primates, hundreds of birds and other animals.  But your key mission is to locate the chimp families – our closest living relatives.  After you locate the chimp you will have a chance to observe them quietly.  The chimps are well aware that you are here and some may even approach you.  You may be surprised by the family dynamics and the familiar behavior of the babies – after all we share 99% of our DNA with the chimp. 


After a delicious lunch back in your lodge, you may choose an optional activity like a hike, or kayaking adventure in one of Kibale’s brilliant crater lakes.  Here, as you glide over the crystal-clear waters, and around jungle trees, take the incredible views of the Uganda Adventure.   Perhaps an afternoon of rest and relaxation as well!


Enjoy a great dinner in the lodge and unwind from the day by the roaring campfire.

THE JOURNEY TO LAKE MBURO

After today’s early breakfast set off for Lake Mburo National Park-home of the Zebras in Uganda! Check into your luxury lodge for lunch and preparation for a game drive!


In the afternoon,  cover the savanna in your Land Cruiser.  The sun slowly sets as the grazers begin to disappear into their hiding spots.  Although there aren’t many predators in Lake Mburo, the nocturnal leopard comes out at sunset – ready for breakfast.   


After dark, arrive back in your luxury lodge in Lake Mburo and enjoy another spectacular meal.  Later, sit out by the fire with your guide and fellow travelers, as you gaze upon the constellations in the African sky.

EXPLORE THE PLAINS ON BIKE OR HORSEBACK

 

Another amazing adventure awaits you today.  Lake Mburo National Park does not have many predators, which means the grazers have a run of the land.  It also means the park is safe to explore on horseback or by bike.  Today, you can ride with the zebras, chase the gazelle on bicycle, or take a walk with your guide.   This unique experience gives you a chance to get close to the safari animals and get some amazing pictures.    


After a physically demanding morning, get back to your lodge in Mburo National Park and enjoy a gourmet lunch.  In the afternoon indulge in the included massage and spend the rest of your evening relaxing in the luxury facilities. 

THE EQUATOR AND BACK TO THE CAPITAL

 

As you set back towards civilization this morning, gaze upon the African plains once more.  Uganda is a country located on the equator and occupying two hemispheres.  On your way back to the capital, stop in a little village that gets the best of both worlds – the northern and southern hemisphere border village.  Here you can take fun pictures, one foot in the north and one in the south. The equator village is also a great place to shop for souvenirs of your Uganda Adventure.

 
In the afternoon, your guide will drop you off back in your luxury hotel in Kampala.  After dinner, relax in your hotel and reminisce on the memories of your incredible Uganda Adventure. 

SEE YOU LATER, NOT GOODBYE

 

As your guide picks you up for the journey back to the airport, you may find yourself sad to head home.  Although it's only been nine days, it might feel like much longer.  The African savanna and the jungle, the people and the animals you met will all stay with you long after you are back.  We hope today you say, “see you later,” and not “goodbye.”  Just remember, you will always be welcome back in our beautiful home – Uganda!
