Also expect to see many bird species including; the marabou stalk, African Fish Eagle, pelicans, cormorants and so on. We then go for an evening game drive in the Kasenyi sector.

Day 2 Game drives and boat trip

We wake up early for a morning game drive to search for the early risers. This is the best time to spot predators such as lions, leopards and the spotted hyena. We then drive back to our lodge for late breakfast and later visit Lake Munyanyange to see flamingos. We proceed to the Katwe Salt Lake. This Lake has been in existence since the 16th century and is responsible for the survival of people in Katwe village. You will see/get to know how local salt is extracted and made ready for consumption and sale in this area.  We end our day with an evening game drive in the Kabatoro sector which is famous for large herds of elephants and is also a feeding ground for hippos.

Having encountered them, you will be given a full hour to enjoy your time. The chimpanzees’ behavior can provide a clue to that of our early ancestors. We then start our journey to the Ishasha sector to search for the rare tree climbing lions.
