Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

In the morning, our company guide will pick you up from your hotel and transfer you to the northern sector of Bwindi Impenetrable Rainforest for gorilla trekking. The beautiful scenery, referred to as the “Switzerland of Africa,” will captivate you as you traverse the vast countryside.

Uganda Safaris

Arrive early enough in either Ruhija or Buhoma in preparation for gorilla trekking the next morning. This evening, a community walk to the Pygmies (Batwa) may add some diversity to your safari. Take in the traditional dances and songs from these “Aborigines” of Uganda, who left the forest recently following Uganda Wildlife Authority’s move to boost the conservation of the mountain gorilla in this natural forest. Stay the night at Gorilla Forest Camp or Mahogany Springs/Buhoma community campsite.

Day 2: Mountain Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi

Rise by 6am and report to the park headquarters with your packed lunch for briefing by the senior park ranger guide. You will then set out to track the gentle giants through thick vegetation, as you hike up and down the slopes. Be vigilant to listen to their vocal communications and follow them until you finally come face to face with the gorillas. You’ll be granted one hour to observe these rare creatures in their natural habitat.

It is an extraordinary feeling, sitting in the dense rainforest knowing you are with a handful of the last remaining mountain gorillas. If you have the energy this afternoon, take a guided walk on the Munyaga River trail, which features crystal clear waterfalls, a variety of flora, butterfly species, and an array of birds. This is a haven for primatologists and ornithologists. The other option is taking a guided community walk among the Batwa inhabitants of the park. Return to Buhoma Community Bandas (budget) or Gorilla Resort (luxury).

 

Day 3: Transfer to Queen Elizabeth National Park

After breakfast, drive via Ishasha – the southern sector of Queen Elizabeth national park–in search of the rare tree-climbing lions.
