Kampala, Kibale Forest, Queen Elizabeth Park & Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

On this unforgettable trip, meet one of our closest relatives in the animal kingdom—chimpanzees! We’ll have the chance to track chimpanzees in Kibale National Park, see the abundant wildlife of Queen Elizabeth National Park (think elephants, buffalo, lions, plus some 600 bird species!), and meet the rare mountain gorillas of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Along the way, we’ll experience the warmth of Ugandan hospitality and learn more about their vibrant traditions firsthand through community-driven cultural experiences that give back directly to local communities. We’ll visit a women’s coop in Bwindi, meet with one of the oldest surviving indigenous tribes of Africa, and learn about the lives of the Ugandan youth during a visit to a school.
