FORT PORTAL TOUR AND CRATER LAKES EXPERIENCE

Enjoy a 3 Days safari to Fort Portal – One of Uganda’s best towns. Historical in nature and amazing in landscapes and wildlife. Fort Portal is phenomenal.

DAY 1: SET OFF FROM KAMPALA.

Begin the journey from Kampala and drive Fort Portal in Western Uganda. Experience different towns, scenery and tea plantations en route. Make stops along the way to enjoy the beautiful views. On arrival at Fort Portal town, have lunch as you take a break from the journey.

Fort Portal is a beautiful city with a number of tourist attractions. It was the base for early British colonialists in Uganda including Gerald Portal (then British Consul in Zanzibar). Fort Gerry was built in this place to protect this region from external invaders at the time. The town was later renamed “Fort Portal”.

After your lunch, drive to your accommodation in Fort Portal to check in and prepare for the city tour.

Begin your city tour of Fort Portal by driving through the town; visit the Kings palace, the Tooro Botanical Gardens, and so much more the city has to offer.

 

Drive back to your accommodation. Have dinner and overnight stay at your hotel.

DAY 2: CRATER LAKES, TOP OF THE WORLD EXPERIENCE

After breakfast, drive to Rweteera to begin your community and nature tour. Walk through the community as you watch beautiful wildlife, greeting the local people, and enjoying the scenery along the way.

Visit the different crater lakes, tea plantations and hike to the “Top of the world” – A magical experience with incredible views of the distant horizons and Kibale Forest. This experience is comparable to none and very photogenic. Please carry your camera for amazing photos.

If you like, you can do canoeing on the crater lakes (this activity will have to be arranged in advance).

Continue exploring the region with a drive through Kibale Forest National Park and enjoying encounters with Baboons.

Visit Bigodi town for another community experience. Visit the local women and see how they prepare coffee. Also visit their crafts shops to see thier works and possibly support them by buying some crafts.

Also visit the Bigodi Wetlands swamp for incredible views of birds especially the Great blue turaco and monkeys.

Drive back to Fort Portal. Dinner and overnight at your hotel.

DAY 3: AMABERE CAVES, DEPARTURE BACK TO KAMPALA.

After breakfast, visit the Amabere Caves for an amazing cultural, geographical and historical experience. These rock caves, which are as a result of formation of stalagmites and stalactites, are named after Nyinamwiru, who was the daughter of the region’s ancient king, King Bukuku. Legend has it that rocks which have dripping water are Nyinamwiru’s breasts.

Enjoy the beautiful waterfalls at the caves and hike Nyakasura hills for amazing views and more nature experiences.

Review of: 3-Day Gorillas trekking and Batwa Experience
Sedrick went above and beyond to accomodate our request for an itinerary alteration due to our compressed time in Uganda. He also compeltely took care of scheduling our covid 19 testing and drove us to the site on arrival.

Our driver/guide Ben was also outstanding!

**We highly recommend using a porter during gorilla trekking as their are some complex parts to the trail/terrain. This also benefits the local people by providing them work.**

Seeing Lots of Animals and Uganda
The schedule suited my time in Uganda exactly and was a great opportunity to view some of the top wildlife and natural wonders of the country. Lodgings range from mid-range to near upscale and are in beautiful locations. Food is good and ample. My driver, Stanley, was expert at spotting wildlife and, very importantly on the Ugandan roads, a careful and skilled driver. You see various parts of the country on this tour, and due to distances, be aware you'll spend quite a few hours on the road. One thing they might add is an itinerary going into more detail ahead of time on each day's activity and suggested things to bring. I was concerned about the needed COVID test for return home, but they took care of arranging that, and it turned out successfully. Overall the tour was a real highlight and is highly recommended.

I went on an 11 day safari visiting Kampala, Jinja, Lake Mburo NP, Bwindi NP, Queen Elizabeth NP and Kibale NP. Communications with Ngoni were prompt and easy from the start. As soon as I made my booking, Sedrick contacted me through WhatsApp and guided me through the rest of the process. Leading up to the tour he made sure I was well-prepared to begin. He was always very clear and friendly. Service was exceptional. I had the pleasure of going on this safari with three members of Ngoni's staff - Sedrick, Nelson and Joel. These guys made my comfort their priority from the moment we met. Whether it was checking if I was okay with the accommodations or making sure I always had a bottle of water, I always felt like I was being well taken care of. Nelson is an excellent guide. His knowledge about the flora and fauna of Uganda was extensive, always able to answer any questions I had and was eager to teach - it's obvious that he has a great love for his country and it's environment and is eager to share this love with his clients. My experience with Ngoni and Uganda surpassed all expectations I had. Absolutely amazing, and thanks to the guys at Ngoni it feels like a new home - can't wait to come back and visit. Webale, brothers!

Sedrick was unique and stood out from the rest in the high quality communication he provided since the first inquiry. He called me to provide information about the itinerary and see if I had any questions even before booking the tour. We communicated through WhatsApp for any other questions that came to mind after that call. After picking me up from the airport, he and Pilot (additional tour guide) provided plenty of information about the country to give me some context and we started our long drive to the impenetrable forest. The food was delicious with many options; the accommodation was very clean with exceptional service; and the transportation from Entebbe to Bwindi park was very comfortable (although long). As a solo female traveler, both tour guides (Sedrick and Pilot) did an exceptional job at enduring I accomplished everything intended to in Uganda, and always made me feel safe. I highly recommend to book your safari with this company because the quality and professionalism will not let you down.

I was going on a gorilla safari with my friend and this was going to be the first ever safari for the both of us. Luckily, the communication with the office was super easy and we got answers to all of the questions we needed. The driver / guide (Sedrick) was very professional and funny and made our time very pleasant. Also, he had a proper knowledge of the local area close to the Mgahinga national park and he promptly spoke some 7 languages which we thought was super positive. The safari was surely the highlight of out East African trip!

My Team and I did a five day trip, including Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, Murchison Falls and Kidepo. It was truly an incredible experience. Our guide, Sedrick, was knowledgeable, skilled in driving in some challenging settings and just plain fun to hang out with for five days. The lodging was perfect, especially Savannah Lodge. The tents and beds were high quality. The views were spectacular. Meals were delicious and varied. I recommend Ngoni safaris Uganda with all my heart and soul!

Our six days trip was amazing. The driver/guide had an incredible knowledge of animal and bird-life and are so interesting to talk to. His driving skills through lashing rain and massive puddles was admirable! The cooks managed to produce varied and delicious meals from the kitchen, which we ate both at accommodation or roadside when we were travelling from one place to another . At all times we felt safe and well-looked after. All in all, an incredible experience, due not only to the abundance of wildlife we were lucky enough to see, but also to the great efforts put to have our Safari a better one . The safari was full of fun. Traveling with ngoni safaris is my life time memorable experience and I highly recommend it to travellers who would love to visit uganda or EastAfrica for holidays, vacations or Adventure.. Even five stars are too small .
