Optional Activities

Activities in Queen Elizabeth National Park

Chimpanzee tracking

The only habituated chimpanzee community in Queen Elizabeth National Park inhabits an isolated strip of riparian forest in the 100m deep Kyambura River Gorge, which runs for 16km on the park’s eastern boundary with quite easy to locate the chimps by sound, and once you’ve found them, they can usually be approached quite closely. Guided chimp-tracking excursions depart twice-daily and permits cost US$50 inclusive of the guide but excluding the park entrance fee.

Lion tracking

Lion tracking involves learning much more about the habits of the king of the wild in natural plains of kasenyi with in the national park. Lions with radio collars are tracked by a researcher who use the radiation trackers to monitor the movement of the lions with the radio collars. Lion tracking is one of the most interesting experimental tourism activities in Uganda. Limited numbers of participants are allowed to a natural habitat. This means if you are to join the team you have to book in advance in order to spare a place. This activity lasts for 2-3 days and only twice a day; in the morning around 8am and late afternoon. The coast of a lion permit authorized by Uganda Wildlife Authority is US$60 for international tourists and UGX 100,000 for the members of the East African Community.

Birding

The park contains over 600 bird species making it a must visit destination for birder to Uganda. Migratory birds are seen from November to April however birds can be seen throughout the year. Hot spots for the best birding in Queen Elizabeth National Park include; Kazinga Channel, Kasenyi Area, Mweya Peninsula, Maramagambo Forest, Ishasha Sector, Lake Kikorongo, Katunguru Bridge area and Katwe Area.  Watch out for the shoebill, Martial Eagle, Black rumped Buttonquail, African Skimmer, Verreaux’s Eagle-Owl, Black bee-Eater, White-Tailed Lark, White –winged Warbler.

Maramagambo Forest

The immense Maramagambo Forest, which runs west from the Katunguru-Ishaka Road almost as far the shore of Lake Edward, is largely inaccessible to tourists, the only exception being the northeastern tip around the crater lakes Nyamasingiri and Kyasanduka. The vastness of this forest is alluded to in its name, which derives from local phrase meaning ‘the end of words’ and refers to a legend about a group of young people who got lost there many years ago and took so long to find their way out and they were unable to speak when they returned home.

Activities in Bwindi

Village walk in Bwindi

This 3 hour stroll through Buhoma and its margins immerses visitors in the customs and practices of the Bakiga and Batwa people. The tour takes in varied activities such as farming, brewing local beer, dispensing traditional medicines and concludes with dancing displays by members of the Batwa community.

Birding watching in Bwindi

Birders with a limited amount of time in Buhoma are strongly urged to stick to the Munyaga River Trail, which starts on the edge of the park behind the gorilla tracking trailhead and follows the same old road through the forest south of Buhoma as the waterfall trail. The open road provides better birding opportunities than a narrow forest path and on a good morning you could hope to see over 60 bird species. Among the common species seen include; the great blue turaco, black bee-eater, red-tailed bulbul, bar tailed trogon, Doherty’s bush-shrike, white bellied robin-chat and much more.
