Program

Day 1: Entebbe - Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park

Depart from Entebbe to Kampala for your 8 - 9-hour road transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. En-route meet and interact with Royal drum makers, stopover at the equator, and capture photographic memories. You will find that Ugandans are friendly and are so eager to interact with visitors. Continue to Mbarara for lunch and embark on your scenic drive to Bwindi NP.

  • Meals: Lunch and dinner

Day 2: Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

After an early morning breakfast, you will drive to the park headquarters for registration and join others for a gorilla trekking briefing about the dos and the don’ts during your gorilla trek. Once this is done, you will trek through thick creepers and undergrowth with your guides to find the gorillas, which can take you from half an hour to three-quarters of the day. The steeply forested landscape is incredibly dense but crisscrossed by numerous animal trails allowing access to tourists.

On your trek, you are likely to spot other primates, birds, and rare tree species. After finding the gorillas, you will be allowed to spend one hour with them before trekking back to the park headquarter. This is indeed an extraordinary feeling being with these beautiful yet endangered creatures. You will be awarded a certificate for participating in gorilla trekking and thus contributing to the conservation of mountain gorillas.

Location

Uganda is a land of contrasts. Uganda is alive with these contrasts surrounding by the massive lumbering yet silent elephant, disappearing like a vapor behind the trees, the chimpanzees crashing about the forest canopy, the lugubrious gorilla, chewing thoughtfully in the bamboo thicket.

There is the Nile, twisting its way north like a shimmering ribbon, through arid semi-desert scattered about with rocky kopjes, snowcapped peaks, tropical, sandy, freshwater beaches and smiling faces everywhere.
