2 days Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary safari in Uganda
Day 1: Travel to Ngamba Island, view chimpanzee feeding and enjoy a sunset boat cruise.
Early in the morning after breakfast, you shall transfer to Entebbe to take a boat cruise to Ngamba Island. Depending on your pickup point, which can be either in Kampala or Entebbe, the boat cruise you shall take will largely depend on your time of arrival at Entebbe. There are two boat cruise sessions to Ngamba Island, one at 9-10 am and another at 12-1pm. This is very vital because we don’t want you to miss out on the chimpanzee feeding session at 11am and 3pm. If you take a boat cruise at 9-10am, you shall be assured of attending the chimpanzee feeding session at 11am however if you take a boat cruise at 12-1pm, you shall attend the feeding session of 3pm. The feeding session is so important because it gives you the opportunity to view the chimpanzee up close along the walkway. You shall witness them as they jump to take up the fruits. Later, you shall enjoy a relaxing moment at the Island and take a sunset boat cruise to enjoy the magical waters of Lake Victoria and to witness the day as it transforms from day to night. Later, you shall move back to the lodge for dinner and an overnight.
Day 2: Nature walk or other activity
Early in the morning, you shall either engage in the nature walk or participate in caring for the chimpanzees. The nature walk shall make you enjoy the beautiful surrounding while spotting several flora and fauna. This forested island is blessed with a number of wildlife species and several bird species which are endemic to the area. If you decide to engage in caring for the chimpanzees, you shall team up with the sanctuary staff and see the chimpanzees being subjected to medical tests. Later, embark on a boat cruise to Entebbe and you shall later be transferred from your pickup point.
