The game drive may last up to 3 hours, returning to the lodge in time for a full breakfast. Apart from the famous tree climbing lions there are also the Uganda Kobs, elephants, hippos buffalos and topis grazing in the plains of the Ishasha sector.

Today you make your way from Queen Elizabeth NP to the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park which is home to the world famous Mountain Gorilla. Almost half of all Mountain Gorillas live in Bwindi and the park itself is also listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its expanse of ancient and undisturbed tropical forests dating back to the last ice age. The lush opportunities for exploration that nature has to offer in this park appear almost limitless.

In the morning, you venture out on a trek into the dense and tangled forests past beautiful water falls with sunlight filtering through the dense foliage of the jungle canopy.
