7 DAYS UGANDA: THE PERFECT FAMILY SAFARI

Relaxed, diverse and filled with fabby fun: that’s our, or rather your, 7-day family safari in Uganda.

Everything starts in Jinja, the adrenaline capital of Uganda. On calm horses you and your little ones discover the beautiful surroundings, little villages and some animals along the way. Majestic wildlife like lions, elephants, hippos and crocodiles as well as instagrammable waterfalls are welcoming you in Murchison Falls National Park. These few days will already give you plenty of memories, which you can reminisce about on your way to Kibale National Park.

Together you’ll go chimpanzee trekking in this lush, emerald forest and marvel at a stunning flora and fauna during a swamp walk in the Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary. Your kids will not get enough of the colourful birds, the playful monkeys and the curious otters (yes, otters!) roaming this paradise. This is how you create memories for a lifetime!

Day 2

Drive from Entebbe / Kampala to Jinja

On your first day of travels in Uganda, you immediately hit the road to take in the first images of the country on a 3-hour drive to Jinja. From Entebbe, you first drive to the capital Kampala and from there, you continue to the energizing city of Jinja. Just before reaching this town on the shores of Lake Victoria, you pass over the Source of the Nile bridge and get a first glimpse of this famous body of water originating in Lake Victoria. Then Jinja awaits, time for some action!

Day 3

Drive from Jinja to Murchison Falls National Park

Prepare yourself for a genuine road trip, as today is the day you drive six hours from Jinja to the astonishing Murchison Falls National Park. In the old days, explorers would follow the flow of the River Nile all the way up to the falls – and it would take ages. Luckily, these days the trip is much faster, as the road takes you first to Kampala, then to the town of Masindi and from there to Murchison Falls. A lovely drive!

Day 4

Jeep safari in Murchison Falls National Park

During a jeep safari, our guide takes you in your private jeep on an unlimited game drive in the park. Make sure to share your expectations for this day with him, and let yourself be surprised by the suggestions he might have. Once on the road, ask any question that comes to mind and most of all: enjoy the amazing ride and sights!

Day 5

Drive from Murchison Falls to Kibale Forest National Park

Today you drive from Murchison Falls to Kibale National Park. This 6-hour drive leads you past welcoming villages, rainforests, charming tea plantations and mesmerizing crater lakes towards Fort Portal - a friendly and hospitable gateway city to Uganda's adventures. If the weather is clear, you can see the Rwenzori Mountains with their snow-capped peaks. And then, get ready for Kibale Forest, the primate capital of the world with no less than 13 different species of monkeys!

Accommodations:

Day 6

Chimpanzee Trekking in Kibale National Park

The highest concentration of chimpanzees on the African continent can be found in Uganda – in Kibale National Park to be precise! With approximately 1,500 chimps in several groups, you have a relatively high chance of seeing these fascinating animals in the wild. During chimpanzee trekking, expert guides take you through the lush rainforest, and once located, you can watch the chimps hop from tree to tree, play, eat and groom each other. Observing these close-knit communities up-close will make you understand what Jane Goodall’s fascination is all about!

Day 7

Drive back to Entebbe / Kampala

As you drive back to Entebbe, you again pass through the villages with their lively marketplaces and the outstretched countryside with tea and coffee plantations, smooth green hills and the occasional wildlife waving you goodbye.
