1.

Kampala and Ndali. Four hours!

Kampala and Source of the Nile. Just over the hour!

No! the chimp walks are at Kanyanchu not Ndali!

2.

Ishasha camp to Mweya lodge. Four hours plus.

NO. Afternoon Launch trips go at 14.30 and 15.30. don't do it. slow down!

3.

How long is the drive from Mweya to Kibale (Ndali lodge) please? N'dali is NOT Kibale.

Allow a good three hours!

4.and Kibale to Semiliki please? About the same!

5.can one fly - charter?- from Semliki to Murchison please? Yes, but no you should not bother unless Daddy owns a Bank!

thank you!

Karibu sana!

Mfuwe, thank you - sadly daddy does not own a bank!

in my excitement i got the names of places wrong - in point 1 i meant the travelling time from Kampala to Ngamba, but i think its about one hour?

I have just read that Ngamba to Bwindi is 11 hours drive! would you suggest stopping on the way and where?

thank you

anitafiona,

Ngamba is an Island in Lake Victoria. Kampala to Entebbe, where you would be picked up is about 45 mns.

Ngamba to Bwindi is probably not doable in a day. Kampala to Bwindi is 10 hours. Add in boat to Entebbe and then Entebbe to Kampala and you have a fair old trip.

Ndali is very nice though but you may find it fully booked out for this December.
