Ngamba Island Chimp Tour

You’ll meet your boat on the shores of Lake Victoria in Entebbe to take you out to Ngamba Island before a briefing on the Chimpanzee conservation efforts in Uganda. You’ll then be taken to the viewing platform to see the chimpanzee’s feeding. Watch the rehabilitated chimps feed, groom and socialise. In the mid-afternoon, you’ll cross back over Lake Victoria to Entebbe.

When taking this trip you also support Chimp Trust, which is working to protect the forest habitat of the chimpanzees and caring for those unable to return to the wild.

Day Trip Vehicle Upgrade – Classic VW Campervan

The classic Volkswagen Campervan is our signature vehicle. It’s how the company started with its intrepid founders who wanted to test something a little unconventional. It worked! These Campervans were manufactured in Germany and bought to Uganda in the 1970’s. We currently own three Campervans that run trips over a large amount of the country. Clients need to bare in mind that these vehicles were not designed for off-roading. All of our drivers are certified VW mechanics and fix the odd hiccup. We won’t let you miss an activity but we do advise you to appreciate that there may be a few short stops along the way. We added the Toyota’s as some of our clients require speed and air conditioning but if you’re up for an adventure, you might want to consider something a little quirky. Each vehicle seats six around a table and has an MP4 jack (3mm amp) and a subwoofer to blast those 70’s tunes!

For price quote please see "Prices Tab". Please note prices are based per car hired and on pick up and drop in Kampala. For other locations please contact us.

Day Trip Vehicle Upgrade – Landcruiser

Some clients simply prefer a Landcruiser on their trip! They are after all the conventional way to travel on tour. Like the Super Custom, they offer comfort and reliability. They offer more intimacy for small groups of two to four clients and are optimal for single travellers. To take this tour in a landcrusier check out the price tab to add this car for your trip.
