Day 2: Game drive in Queen Elizabeth National Park – Transfer to Ishasha 
Start the day with an early morning game drive towards the mating ground of the Uganda Kob in the Kasenyi Plains in search of the Lions. We are likely to come across Warthogs, elephants and buffaloes. Return to the Lodge for lunch. In the afternoon take a cruise on Kazinga Channel- it connects Lake George and Lake Edward; likely sightings include Buffaloes and Elephants that come for an afternoon drink together with Hippos and Crocodiles that make it their home. There is also an amazing birdlife on the channel; likely to see African Fish Eagle.

Day 4:  Gorilla tracking 
The highlight of your safari will be meeting with the gentle giants of Bwindi! You will walk in the dense forest as you scan around for sight of gorilla family. When you finally encounter them, enjoy their presence as they eat, play and rest.  This great experience takes anything from an hour (rarely) to about 6hours or more to accomplish.
