Given distances involved in getting from one park to another in Uganda, 6 nights would usually not give you a huge amount of time to take much in. However with the introduction of light aircraft flights throughout most of Uganda it is now possible to see so much more. This itinerary takes full advantage of this offering you the chance to take in three of Uganda's most famous attractions; Kibale Forest National Park, Queen Elizabeth National Park and Bwindi National Park. We have also carefully selected properties that offer a high standard of accommodation in a family friendly environment.
Please Note: Gorilla and Chimpanzee Trekking has an age restriction of minimum 15 years.
