Tour Itinerary Close
  • Day 1 Entebbe International Airport to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Reserve Upon arrival at Entebbe airport, you'll be met by a rep who will introduce your safari driver guide. After a safari briefing, we'll drive to the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.This is a full day drive from the Lake Victoria basin, passing through Ugandan villages and beautiful agricultural countryside where you see people tending their traditional crops of millet, sorghum, beans and maize. Lunch will be taken en route at Mbarara, before we proceed through the Kigezi mountains to the Buhoma area of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. We'll check in here at our Lodge, drop off our bag and settle down for dinner before bed. Locations Visited: Entebbe Int'l Airport UG, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Reserve UG.
  • Day 2 Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Reserve We'll start early to make the most of our Gorilla-spotting opportunities today. After breakfast at the lodge, we'll drive to the nearby park offices to attend a briefing by the Tourism Conservation and the gorilla guides. You will be briefed on how to behave in the forest while in the presence of a gorilla family. Once the gorilla group is found, you will be allowed an hour to stay with the gorillas before breaking off for lunch in the forest. Later, we'll walk back to our waiting vehicle and return to the park offices to receive a gorilla trekking Certificate. Mission complete! You'll be dropped at the lodge to freshen up after our adventures. Time permitting, you may have the chance tonight to sign up for a community village visit or a Batwa Cultural experience. Note: If permits are not available in the Buhoma sector of the Bwindi Forest, then an extra cost will be added if available in the Ruhija sector at the time of booking. Locations Visited: Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Reserve UG.
  • Day 3 Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Reserve to Lake Mburo After breakfast, we'll take a morning drive through terraced evergreen mountains, referred to as the 'Little Switzerland of Africa'. We press on to our Tented Camp for lunch, before a late afternoon game drive for some spotting of zebra, impala, topi, Cape buffalo and other plains game to add to your growing wildlife list. We return to the Camp before dusk for dinner and overnight. Locations Visited: Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Reserve UG, Lake Mburo UG.
  • Day 4 Lake Mburo to Entebbe International Airport Rise and shine for a final morning game drive followed by breakfast at the camp. After breakfast you'll get driven back to Entebbe and dropped at the airport for your onward flight.
