4 Days Chimpanzee and wildlife safari. This brief safari gives travelers an opportunity to explore wildlife in two types of natural settings. In Queen Elizabeth we go on gameviewing safari and traverse the grasslands and explore wildlife that inhabit open settings. The boat cruise on the Kazinga channel gives opportunities to interact with aquatic wildlife species as grassland species also stroll to the channel to cool off the heat of the day. Chimpanzee tracking expeditions in Kibale wander into the rainforest and explore wildlife species that inhabit enclosed settings. They are a little bit shy and aggressive. Travelers must keep a recommended safe distance at all times. The safari gives travelers ample time and an opportunity to interact with indigenous people.
