Day 7: Chimpanzee in Kyambura & visit Katwe Crater Lake

After breakfast you will drive to Kyambura forest. Driving through a grassland area, all of a sudden you come across an amazing gorge covered with tropical rainforest. You will hike into the gorge of the Kyambura River in search of wild chimpanzees. After your trek inside the so-called hanging forest, return to your lodge for lunch. After lunch or later in the evening, head to the Katwe crater lake to meet the Ugandans who mine for salt in the lake.

This lake, which is situated just north of the impressive Mweya peninsula, is far too salty to support any wildlife. However, since the 16th Century, it has ensured the survival of the Katwe residents, who spend their days under the equatorial sun, harvesting salt from its milky waters. Enjoy the spectacular drive to Katwe as you look out for wildlife including buffalos and elephants. Look out for Lake Kitagata – fed by salty hot-springs with no wildlife around but the spectacular views. Once you arrive at the salt mines, marvel at the network of paths and huts that have been built across the lake to support hundreds of workers. Dinner and overnight as above.
