Program

Day 1: Transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

You will be picked up by Rumara Safaris' guide from Entebbe International Airport (EBB) / your hotel in Entebbe / Kampala / Kigali after an early morning breakfast at 07:00. You will be directed about the whole safari before you travel to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park which is found in the southwestern part of Uganda. Along the way, there is a local drum and craft-making community so you will have a visit here. Then you can take a stopover at the Equator to take fascinating photos, also feel free to buy some crafts and souvenirs as you head to Mbarara town where you will have your lunch from. Afterward, you will continue to Bwindi whereby you will arrive in the late afternoon. You will check in at the lodge, relax in the evening, and have dinner.

Day 2: Do gorilla trekking at Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and transfer to Lake Bunyonyi for an evening relaxation and overnight

After breakfast, gather at the respective park headquarters for a briefing at 08:00 and eventually start your gorilla trekking encounter. You will follow the trails of your respective gorilla family traversing the forest with is hilly forested landscapes and deep saddles. The hills are forested with mature trees and dense undergrowth that have earned it the name, impenetrable. During Uganda gorilla tracking, trackers are advised to carry the raincoats as well as the boots since the weather is always unpredictable.

There are also porters who carry the luggage on behalf of the guests at a small cost. Getting one is highly recommended. Once you come face to face with these gorillas, the rangers will also guide you on how to handle them most especially by giving them a six-meter distance as you play around with them. Kindly note that it’s also not so easy to predict the time to be taken while trekking and this will mainly depend on the location of some families since some stay really far from the headquarters.

The gorilla trekking encounter tends to last two to eight hours inclusive of a one-hour direct encounter with them. Seeing the critically endangered apes as they forage, socialize, the young gorillas rolling themselves on tree branches, and the silverback demonstrating his authority is a moment of wonder that derives remarkable excitement. After the trek, you will proceed for a community walk or a nature walk in the afternoon. Later on, you will get back to the lodge for dinner and overnight.

Day3: Transfer back to Kampala

After having an early breakfast, you will check-out and start your journey back to Kampala passing through rolling hills with terraces and also, you will have a great time viewing the lush vegetation of the different areas you will go through. You will have lunch in Mbarara and another stop will be at Mbambire drum makers point. After purchasing some of these drums, you will continue to Kampala, arriving late afternoon.
