Venture into the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest of Uganda, where you will trek for critically endangered mountain gorillas. There are only about 1 000 gorillas left on earth, making this a bucket-list experience of a lifetime. You will also get to meet up with some local people in the nearby Buhoma Village, where you will get an insight into the cultural aspect of this beautiful country.
Your trip begins with arrival at Entebbe International Airport. You will be met by your driver and transferred to your hotel for check-in and overnight. The following day, you’ll enjoy breakfast at the hotel then fly by scheduled light aircraft to transfer to Kihihi in southwestern Uganda.
Spend 2 nights at your forest camp, nestled deep inside the world-famous Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Relax on your first afternoon at the lodge and gather your strength for your trekking activity, starting early the following morning.
You’ll wake up at 6:00 am and prepare for the unforgettable day ahead. After an early breakfast, transfer to the park headquarters (5 mins walk) for a quick brief on your gorilla trek. Then, you will set off into the forest in the footsteps of the Mountain Gorillas, led by experienced gorilla trackers on the slopes of the volcanoes.
Once you find the gorilla troop you are tracking, you will be allowed an hour with the gorillas.
Wake up and enjoy breakfast the next day. After your check out, you will be transferred to Kihihi Airstrip to take your scheduled flight back to Entebbe. Overnight in Entebbe and depart the following day.
