11/24 & 11/25 upon arrival in Kampala, I will be transferring to Ngamba Island for the overnight stay and also to do the forest walk with the chimpanzees at The Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary.This opportunity is available only for a short time, and should make for a truly unforgettable experience.
