  • Day 1: Arrival for the tour – Uganda.

Upon landing in Uganda, you’ll be met by our safari representative who’ll take you westwards through the green countryside of Uganda to the Queen Elizabeth National Park. The journey will take approximately 6 to 7 hours with stopovers at some of the tourist specific places along the way. This includes the Royal Drum makers’ village where you’ll get an opportunity to stand in two hemispheres concurrently. Through the savannah grasslands where you’ll come across banana and other fruit plantation, you’ll move towards the park. Along the way, you’ll see herds of local long horned Ankole cattle which are endemic and found only in this corner of Uganda. In the evening hours, you’ll arrive at Queen Elizabeth National Park. Dinner and overnight at your selected lodge.
