This trip begins in Entebbe, the gateway city to Uganda’s most thrilling destinations. It moves on to Murchison Falls National Park and the Budongo Forest Reserve before ending spectacularly in Bwindi, home to majestic mountain gorillas!
Once you’ve arrived in Entebbe, you’ll stay at Karibu Entebbe, a boutique hotel just 10 minutes’ drive from the city’s airport. Situated in a serene suburb, Karibu is ideal for a night to relax and refresh before heading off on safari. Next, you’ll travel to Murchison Falls National Park, to Murchison River Lodge. This is a comfortable option on the south bank of the River Nile. After that, you’ll head back to Karibu via the Budongo Forest Reserve. And the final part of your trip is spent at Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge, within Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Fabulously located on Nteko Ridge, overlooking the park, Nkuringo provides excellent accommodation and a great range of activities too.
While at Karibu, you’ll have access to the hotel’s lovely communal areas, including its gardens and swimming pool! From Murchison River Lodge, you can enjoy rhino tracking within the private non-profit ZIWA Rhino Sanctuary, sunset cruises on the Nile, excursions on the Nile delta, and game drives. On your way back to Entebbe, you’ll go chimpanzee trekking in the Budongo Forest Reserve!
