Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Kampala - Bwindi Impenetrable National Park -550 Km

Depart Kampala at 0700 and head for Bwindi National Park. Have a stop at the equator for photographs and Mbarara town for lunch. Drive through undulating hills of Kigezi Highlands and winding roads. With all the volcanic activity in this area the scenic beauty is breathtaking. Continue to the lodge arriving late afternoon.

Day 2: Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

Wake up early for a hearty breakfast to give you the energy needed for your gorilla trek. Don't forget to carry your rain gear, packed lunch and plenty of water. Once you find the gorillas, you will spend with them an hour before returning to your lodge. At 0730 report to the ranger station for registration and briefing by the rangers; the guides will then take you through the bush pushing your way through the undergrowth, parting thick creepers, to track the gorillas. The trek can take from half an hour to 7 hours – a reasonable degree of fitness is required as well as a sturdy pair of walking shoes.
Once you are close to the group the guides will ask you to leave behind your bags as no food items should be carried close to the gorillas. Just take your cameras with you as you are about to meet the gentle giants! Sit in the forest amongst the gorillas, listening to them grumble to each other and marvel at the sheer size of the dominant male; the silverback. It is an extraordinary feeling sitting in the dense rainforest knowing you are with a few of the last remaining mountain gorillas – sadly enough there are only about 650 of these beautiful creatures left. You are allowed exactly one hour with the gorillas before returning to the base station/n Lodge. FB.

Day 3: Bwindi Impenetrable National Park - To Entebbe (560kms)
