Program

Day 1: Kampala-Bwindi Gorilla Forest

Start your gorilla safari and wildlife tour very early in the morning at 6:00 a.m. after breakfast. You will drive south-west taking the Masaka-Mbarara road to head to Bwindi Forest, the gorilla sanctuary. The drive will take you through towns, homesteads, grasslands, and banana plantations to reach the park in the late afternoon.

Dinner and stay overnight at Gorilla Safari Lodge, Buhoma Bandas or Silver Back Lodge. Today’s meal plan includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Day 2: Gorilla tracking safari in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

In the morning, you will have heavy breakfast and with packed lunch, you will transfer to the park headquarters for briefing and then later on at 9:00 a.m., you will set off along the tracks in the thick forest to go search for these great apes.

Depending on the movement of these humble giants the walk might take between two to nine hours before you encounter the gorillas. The walk is tiresome however meeting these great apes and spending some time with them while looking deep into their expressive brown eyes, is an exhilarating and heart-breaking wildlife encounter that Africa has to offer.

Dinner and stay overnight at Gorilla Resort or Buhoma community Bandas. Today’s meal plan includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Day 3: Drive to Queen Elizabeth Elizabeth Park, enjoy an evening boat cruise

Very early in the morning, you will have breakfast and transfer to Queen Elizabeth National park. You will be at the park in the early afternoon hours. After lunch at your lodge, you will transfer to Mweya side where the boat cruise on Kazinga Channel starts from.

Kazinga Channel is a water channel that connects Lakes Edward and George. During the launch cruise, you will likely see animals including hippos, buffaloes, elephants, and many more along the water shores.

There are also plenty of birds and for birders, this channel is another bird paradise. Dinner and stay overnight at Mweya Safari Lodge, Enganzi Lodge, or Ihamba Safari Lodge on full board. Today’s meal plan includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Day 4: Morning game drive, transfer to Kampala
