Tour Summary

Day 1: Arrival in Entebbe, fly to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
Day 2: Gorilla trekking
Day 3: Fly from Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and depart

Upon arrival at Entebbe International Airport in Uganda and after all the formalities, you shall be welcomed by our special greet and meet team at the Airport and then fly at 12:00pm to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park – Kihihi Airstrip.

Upon arrival at the Airstrip, you will meet with your guide and then transfer to your lodge. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park – home to the endangered mountain gorillas lies in southwestern Uganda on the edge of the Rift Valley. Its mist-covered hillsides blanketed by one of Uganda’s oldest and most biologically diverse rainforests, which dates back over 25,000 years and contains almost 400 species of plants.

More famously, this “impenetrable forest” also protects an estimated 400 mountain gorillas – roughly half of the world’s population, including several habituated groups, which can be tracked. There are 23 of the 24 Albertine Rift endemic bird species including Blue-throated Broadbill, bar-tailed Trogon and other beautiful forest species. Retire to the lodge for an overnight as you will require enough rest for the following day’s activity.

After an early morning breakfast, you will transfer to the park headquarters and meet with excellent local ranger guides and trackers who will brief you about the etiquette of gorilla trekking. Thereafter head off to the forest for Gorilla trekking in the company of an experienced ranger who will tell you interesting facts about flora and fauna and the lifestyle of the Gorillas.

Trekking the Mountain Gorilla is one of the most exciting wildlife experiences, although the hike is physically demanding the beauty of the forest and surrounding scenery makes the trekking worthwhile. The trek will take between 2 and 6 hours, but is well worth the effort.

As an alternative to gorilla trekking, you could choose to take a guided forest walk in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. A forest walk in Bwindi rewards the travelers with an exclusive feeling of a natural virgin forest, sweet melodies of birds singing up in the trees as well a close encounter with wild animals such as baboons, vervet monkeys, L’Hoest’s Guenon, duickers, giant forest hogs and bush pigs among others.

After breakfast, you will be transferred to the Airstrip and then fly back to Entebbe. Along the way, you will enjoy the beautiful aerial view of southwestern Uganda, the hills and thick vegetation as well the terraces. Later on, you will arrive at the airport and take your flight back home.
