Moderate Lodging combined with Up-Market on this Safari
Day 1: Depart your lodging in Kampala for Queen Elizabeth Park at 6:30 am - heading for Queen Elizabeth Park and your Tented Safari Camp Adventure in the Wild. Drive through the Ugandan countryside and we are heading for the Bush Lodge at Queen Elizabeth Park. This small, intimate lodge is set just outside of park overlooking the famed Kazinga Channel. Your tents has all the comforts you will need for your stay and is self contained.
Each tent has its own veranda where you can relax in the morning as the sun rises or with a cold drink in the late afternoon.
Away from the crowds and often you will see more wildlife moving in and out of the camp than people. Each tent is self contained with attached bath, the shower has two heads and comes at a moderate price, full board.
From here you can easily access the wildlife game tracks of the Mweya area of the park and also you are not far from the Kyambura Gorge with its Chimpanzee Tracking.
You arrive in time for lunch and you will spend the next two nights in this lovely camp.
Enjoy your lunch and get settled in.
In the late afternoon it is time for your first Wildlife Tracking Ride with Wildlife and Bird Expert who will not let you miss a thing and answer any questions you might have. Lions, Leopards, Elephants, Buffaloes, Antelopes in abundance as you ride across the savannah and rolling hills of Queen Elizabeth Park with the Rwenzori gracing the background.
Dinner at Bush Lodge and settle in for a night in the African Bush with its distinct sounds as you drift off into sleep.
Day 2: Breakfast at Bush Lodge - filling, sumptuous and making you ready for your time with the chimpanzees at Kyambura Gorge. There is nothing like a hearty breakfast in the African Bush, even vegetarians just might be tempted by the smell of the sizzling bacon and sausages. A cup of Rwenzori Mountain Coffee made from Arabica Beans, or a cup of our lovely tea from nearby plantations, pineapple to live for...it is Breakfast Time in the Bush at Bush Lodge.
Kyambura Gorge Chimpanzee Tracking is next - The gorge is part of the the giant Rift Valley, the place where you will meet your chimpanzee group. The chimpanzees move daily building new nests each day. The chimpanzees are habituated, meaning that they are used to human beings. You will spot other wildlife and birds as you move along on your three hour time of tracking.
Lunch at Bush Lodge - well deserved
A more easy time in the afternoon as you take a wildlife and Birding Boat Ride on the famous Kazinga Channel. Buffaloes, Elephants, Antelopes, Crocodiles, Pelicans, Fish Eagle, thousands of them. A feast for your eyes and for your camera.
Dinner at Bush Lodge
Then a surprise - A Nocturnal Game Drive with spotlights to see the predators out at night on the hunt and others, hyenas, lions, leopards, keep your eyes open and allow your guide to point out the various animals around you. A fabulous experience and a time to remember.
Day 3: Breakfast in the Bush at Bush Lodge. Time to check out and move on to another tented lodge in the wilderness, but first it is a morning game drive, the last one in the Mweya area of the Park. See some familiar animals but always in a different setting. Surprises and with 90 some mammals in the park there is always a surprise around the corner.
We move toward the Ishasha Plains of the Park toward our new lodging for the night Ishasha Wilderness Tented Camp a luxury Up-Market Camp where you will be pampered and cared for in fashion.
Settle into your large Tent and enjoy the view and often the wildlife that is near such as elephants coming to water and you can watch them from your veranda of your tent.
Lunch-not just lunch but well prepared and well thought out lunch-prepared with love and the presentation is most graceful, surprising visitors to this setting.
Afternoon Game Drive with Wildlife Expert across the Ishasha Plains in search of Tree Climbing Lions, Leopards, herds of Buffaloes, Elephants, antelopes and lots of savannah birds. You will also notice a vast absence of Safari Vehicles in this part of the park.
Dinner and a glorious celebratory dinner it is in this Luxury Tented Camp. It probably has been a most eventful day for you and there is much to discuss as you sit there delighting in your evening meal as the sun or after the sun sets.
Once again you settle down and go to asleep with the sound of the African Wild - and the incredible quiet that is there...as you look up you will probably find a vas sea of stars grace the Night.
Day 4: Breakfast on the Ishasha Plains, the nearby river gurgling by and morning birds chirping away, in the distance some animals are moving away. Morning has come to Queen Elizabeth National Park.
Sadly some things should not end, but it is time to check out - afterwards it is a morning drive through the Ishasha Plains taking another look and last look at the tree climbing lions and the abundance of wildlife found in that part of the park.
We head for Kampala - stop for lunch in Mbarara - visit the Equator and if time permits and you wish the Buganda Royal Drum Makers, you can even pick up a few.
Arrive late afternoon in Kampala. The Tented Camp Wilderness experience has come to an end.
