Have an early morning breakfast, checkout of the lodge and then embark on our last game drive to increase on our wildlife spot. Later checkout of the park and drive back Kampala or your preferred drop off point with a lunch en-route along the way.
To have worth and much rewarding experience, we suggest to spend nights at the Northern section of the park as it gives more chance to having numerous game drives.
