Murchison provides the setting for a classic savannah safari, but it is the Victoria Nile – dividing the park into northern and southern halves – that gives rise to the park’s greatest drawcard, the Murchison Falls. Notable visitors to the park include Winston Churchill, Theodore Roosevelt, Ernest Hemingway, and several British royals. The 1951 film The African Queen starring Humphrey Bogart was filmed on Lake Albert and the Nile River in Murchison Falls National Park.

On the fifth day of our 12 Days Uganda Safari starts with a relaxed breakfast at around 7.00 am after which we drive to Kibale National Park, the home of primates. You enjoy the countryside views en route and settle for lunch in the best restaurant in Fort Portal town. There is an option of cycling in the Mpanga tea estate after lunch, where workers still harvest the tea leaves by hand. The green tea plantation is spread over a beautiful undulating landscape with endless scenic views which makes it ideal to experience on a mountain bike.

Alternatively, you can visit the Amabere Caves which are named after the live stalactite formation-Amabeere ga Nyinamwiru (literally, Breast of Nyinamwiru) which resembles the breasts of a woman. The woman in question is Nyinamwiru, a legendary princess who is said to have been so beautiful that no man could leave her alone. When Nyinamwiru’s father King Bukuku became weary of receiving marital requests from unsuitable suitors, he took the extreme measure of cutting off his daughter’s breasts in order to make her less attractive and later hid her away in this cave.  Here, she was discovered by the Batembuzi King Isaza, who impregnated with a son. Since Nyinamwiru lacked breasts, she stayed in the cave with her infant, feeding him on the cloudy limestone ‘milk’ that drip from its stalactites. The child nurtured by the stalactite formation would grow up to become King Ndahura the founder of the Bachwezi dynasty.

After exploring the caves, embark on the hike to the Fort Portal Crater Lake field where you traverse the challenging slopes of Kyeganywa hill surrounded by a range of crater lakes and crater hollows presenting one of the beautiful scenic sites in Uganda.

We will have our breakfast at around 7.00 am. We will then transfer to Kibale’s Kanyanchu Visitor Centre for a briefing about the chimpanzee tracking adventure from an excellent local ranger guide which starts at around 8.00 am. From here, we will embark on a 3-4 hours trek in search of chimpanzees. As you search for the chimps you will see some of the other 12 primate species that reside in Kibale such as black-and-white colobus, Uganda red colobus, and red-tailed monkeys as well as many of the 375 bird species. As you pushing through the tangled undergrowth, you are most likely you’ll hear the chimps before you see them. An exciting hoot from somewhere deep in the jungle; just one voice at first, then several, rising in volume and tempo and pitch to a frenzied crescendo, before it stops abruptly and fades away. Jane Goodall called it ‘pant-hoot call’.

As you follow the direction of the calls, you should soon find one of the communities’ sub-groups. They may be high up in the treetops, feasting on figs, grooming, playing, dozing, or laughing. But if you’re lucky, some will come down to the ground, and that’s when the real magic happens. You will be thrilled by how intelligent they are, with their poses, expressions, and interactions that could be almost human and you are free to take as many photos as you wish.

After the chimpanzee encounter which lasts an hour, return to the visitor center where your trekking efforts are rewarded with a trekking certificate. From here, have a lunch break then transfer to Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary a famous successful community tourism initiative in the whole of Uganda presenting a magical walk in its communally controlled wetland with possible sights of 138  bird species and primates.
