Program

In this safari, you can fly to the gorillas from Entebbe instead of driving for nine hours on partly rough roads. The flight from Entebbe International Airport (EBB) to Kihihi / Kisoro Airstrip (the landing near Bwindi) departs at 7:45 a.m. and the return flight from Bwindi departs at 8:30 a.m., arriving Entebbe at 11:25 a.m. With this, it means you may consider arriving Entebbe either a day before the tour start day or, earlier than 7 a.m. on the first day of the tour.

Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival at Entebbe

Arrive at Entebbe International Airport (EBB) and pick up by Pamoja Safaris Uganda's driver / guide who will transfer you to your hotel in Entebbe on a bed and breakfast basis. Travel time is around 15 minutes.

Day 2: Fly to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park

Have an early breakfast. Afterwards, you will be transferred by the hotel representative to Entebbe International Airport (EBB) at 6 a.m. to board the domestic scheduled flight to Bwindi Airstrip. Pick up by Pamoja Safaris Uganda's representative who will transfer you to your lodge. Travel time is around two hours

Day 3: Gorilla trekking at Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park

Today is the big day! Prepare yourself for an encounter with one of Bwindi;s gentle giants: the rare mountain gorilla. For most people this is the absolute highlight of their tour in Uganda.

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest boasts both mountain gorillas and chimpanzees - the only forest in Africa which can make this claim in fact. It also hosts five other species of primate, 113 species of mammal, over 200 butterflies and 360 birds. The gorillas you will track belong to one of nine habituated family groups who can tolerate the presence of humans for a brief period every day.

Your trek will be an exciting journey along forested slopes, entwined vines, bushes, and bamboo before you eventually reach the gorilla's habitat. En route, your guide will point out signs of previous gorilla activity, including dung, nests, and chewed bamboo shoots. The time taken to track the gorillas can take as little as two hours to as much as seven hours before one returns!

Once the gorillas have been located, your group will be allowed a maximum of one hour with them. Coming face-to-face with a mountain gorilla is a truly humbling and emotional experience. This is a fantastic and privileged opportunity to get up close and personal with Uganda's very own gorillas in the mist!

Day 4: Fly back to Entebbe

Pamoja Safaris Uganda's representative will take care of your transfer to Bwindi Airstrip. Today you will be travelling back to Entebbe International Airport (EBB).
