Day 3: Gorilla tracking - Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

Following breakfast at the lodge, you'll travel to the national park headquarters to meet your guides for the day and begin your gorilla tracking experience. Experienced guides and trackers will accompany your party on an early morning trek into the dense rainforest on the mountain slopes. The journey, through dense foliage and up steep climbs, is abundantly rewarded with the lifetime experience of viewing mountain gorillas in their natural habitat.

You will have an opportunity to be within meters of these magnificent apes, sharing in their daily lives and experiencing their day-to-day activities. Mountain gorillas are extremely rare with only an estimated 880 remaining in the wild. This is an experience you won’t soon forget! Kindly note that children above 15 years are allowed to trek gorillas.

Following the trek, return to the lodge and, if time allows, take a guided afternoon forest or community walk. Please note that tracking may be fairly strenuous with treks up to six hours or longer, at high altitudes, not uncommon. Also, mountain gorillas are wild animals and, as such, sightings cannot be guaranteed. However viewing success rates are over 90%.

  • Accommodation: Buhoma Lodge (luxury)
  • Meal plan: All meals

You'll fly back to Entebbe International Airport (EBB) to connect to your flight back home.

Location

This safari will take place in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Uganda. Bwindi National Park, located in southwestern Uganda on the edge of the Great Rift Valley, is considered the most diverse forest in Uganda. The area, one of the few large expanses of forest in East Africa, where lowland and mountain habitats meet, contains a dense ground cover of herbs, vines, and shrubs. Home to over 120 mammals, 345 species of birds, 200 species of butterflies, and 160 species of trees, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is one of the richest ecosystems in East Africa.

The park contains almost one-half of the world’s population of the endangered mountain gorilla, making it an extremely valuable conservation site. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is also home to several endangered bird species with very limited ranges, and acts as an important catchment area for many rivers, supplying water for agriculture in the surrounding region.
