Transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park
Today after an early breakfast, your guide will pick you up at 7:00 am, in Kampala or Entebbe. You'll be transferred to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, in Southwestern Uganda, through a beautiful part of the country often referred to as ‘the Switzerland of Africa’. You will see beautiful terrace hills and you will drive through a bamboo forest zone. On a clear day, you will have great views of the Virunga Mountains.
You will have lunch en route before proceeding to the park. You will arrive at the lodge in time for dinner.
Gorilla Trekking Experience
Today after early breakfast, you will be transferred to the park headquarters for a briefing about gorilla tracking. You will encounter one of Bwindi’s endangered mountain gorillas. For most people, this is the absolute highlight of their tour in Uganda.
Bwindi Impenetrable National Park boasts both mountain gorillas and chimpanzees—the only forest in Africa that can make this claim. It also hosts five other species of primates, 113 species of mammals, over 200 species of butterflies and 360 species of birds. The gorillas you track are habituated and can tolerate the presence of humans for a brief period of time, every day. The time taken to track the gorillas can be as few as 2 hours to as many as 7 hours. 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.
Transfer to Entebbe or Kampala
After breakfast at the lodge, you will drive back to Kampala or Entebbe Airport with a stopover at the equator for a photo moment and souvenir shopping. Your accommodation for tonight is not included in the program.
