Advice regarding Itinerary for July 2009

Jump to last reply

Well after considering Zambia it looks like we have decided on Uganda. Uganda seems to have more diversity ( I know that we will not see the amount of animals we would have seen in Zambia) but the Gorilla and Chimpanzee experience seems incredible. We have become rain forest junkies and all the birding is something that we really have grown to enjoy.

We are going to use Churchill Safaris( any feedback regarding them would be greatly appreciated). The forum on Trip Advisor is primarily positive and Ether the owner has been incredibly responsive and helpful so far. Our itinerary has turned to be very extensive and is a total of 21 days including travel to and from Los Angeles. We have decided to spend three full days in Murchison, Kibale and Queen Elizabeth National Parks with two full days at Bwindi and a visit to Lake Mburo at the end with two nights there. We wanted to go to the Chimpanzee Island and stay overnight but we really did not want to rush more location to location. We are hopefully with the extended time at Kibale we will see them in the wild. Any suggestions about our plans or any other things that would be helpful would be appreciated. This is our first trip to Africa and I know that Uganda is not a usual choice for first timers but we tend to go for more unusual choices. We just got back from Borneo and I am the only person I know that has ever been there. Most people did not even know where Borneo was located.
