Day 2- Ngamba Island Tour
Wake up , have break fast and then later our tour guide will transfer you the pier for a boat transfer to Ngamba Island. There are two half day excursions to Ngamba Island. One starts at 0900 hours while the other begins at 1200 hours. The choice is yours to choose whether you take any at any time but all are subject to availability and therefore we must book them in advance. Enjoy the ride while on the largest lake in East Africa- Lake Victoria is! At Ngamba Island, they have replicated some of the country’s conservation zones such as savannah, wetlands and tropical forest. The boat takes about 45 minutes across to Ngamba Island Chimp Sanctuary, crossing the Equator en-route.
On arrival at this home to 39 orphaned chimps, you will be briefed about the sanctuary and its history. After, the chimpanzee feeding time will come! Watch these primates from the visitors’ platform while they are being fed. It is fascinating to watch the chimps intermingle with each other and with their keepers. You will realize that most of them have different characters just like Man. Whereby some are very greedy others aren’t. This is charming!! In the relatively short amount of time you will be there , you will be able to see such different personalities amongst the group, with some whistling for food and others clapping. Clearly, the exceptional option would be to re-introduce these orphaned chimpanzees to the wild however this is not possible for a number of different reasons and the sanctuary is not bad for second best. Return to the main land after which we will transfer you to at your Lodge BB
Day 3: KAMPALA – MURCHISON FALLS NATIONAL PARK
From Kampala, you will head to Murchison Falls National Park, but you will first take a luncheon at Masindi then proceed to the magnificent falls. So wondrous! Marvel at the robust Nile as it is farfetched into a seven-meter abyss to rumble 45 meters below. Check the series of cascades it forms, which can be viewed at different points up to the culmination. Next will be the dinner and overnight at
