Day 1 - Crater Lake Fields

After breakfast you’ll be driven 20km north to Kajjansi airstrip, to board your private aircraft and fly to Fort Portal town, a 1hr 30min flight. It’s a short drive into the Ndali-Kasenda crater-lake fields to your intimate lodge perched on the rim of an extinct volcano. The crater has now filled with water to become the breath taking Lake Nyinambuga in a landscape dotted with crater lakes, under the shadow of the Rwenzori mountain range. Spend of the rest of the day relaxing at your private cottage or if you prefer, take a guide to ramble through the crater-lake fields and even take a dip.

Day 2 - A Chimps Day

Close to your lodge is Kibale Forest, famous for having the largest concentration of chimps in Africa. A Uganda Wildlife Authority habituation team will give you an orientation on tracking the chimpanzees in the forest. Your aim is to track down the chimps through dense rainforest once they descend from their previous nights nests. Once you have found them, you’ll have the day to observe their natural behavior in the wild as they feed, socialise, nurse their young, relax, patrol and display their prowess, before watching them weave their nests and retire for the night into the forest canopy. By dusk you’ll leave the rainforest and head back to your lodge to relax for the evening to the sounds of the crickets and frogs calling out from the lake below.

Tonight's Accommodation - Ndali Lodge, Ndali-Kasenda Crater Lakes.
