Day 1: Kampala to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park – Uganda.


Our 3 Day Gorilla Trekking Adventure in Uganda starts with collection from your pre-tour hotel in Kampala at 7:30am. Leaving Kampala we drive the 283 km’s to Mbarara, travelling via Masaka. We pause at the Equator to take photographs of the crossing, stretch our legs and enjoy some snacks. Then we continue to Igongo Cultural village where we visit the Ankole Museum. At Igongo we learn about the Bahima and Ankole cultures of Uganda, getting a glimpse into the history of these interesting people. We break our journey for lunch in Mbarara and then head to Bwindi Forest. The dense rainforest of Bwindi, famous for its gorilla population, is one of the most fertile and rich in the world, being home to a variety of primates, animals, insects and exotic birds. Dine amid the forests and verdant hills of Bujumbura, near Bwindi. 


Day 2: Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Gorilla Trekking – Uganda;


Day two starts with an early morning breakfast and a trekking brief from the Uganda Wildlife Authority guide, before embarking on the once-in-a-lifetime experience of trekking mountain gorillas in the wild.

We head off into the lush vegetation for endangered gorilla trekking, the highlight of visiting Uganda, if not Africa. This gorilla walk can take up to six hours, so a reasonable degree of fitness and a sturdy pair of walking shoes are required. The thrill of encountering these gentle primates in the wild is well worth the sometimes challenging trek through the thick undergrowth.

Once we find the African Mountain Gorillas we spend some time watching them feed, groom and interact with each other. We get to hear the gorillas communicating with one another and marvel at the sheer size of the dominant adult male gorillas, called Silverbacks. Encountering these giant apes is one of Africa’s most poignant wildlife experiences. Each gorilla encounter is unique, offering its own rewards. We generally get up close to the adult gorillas to watch them feeding, grooming and resting, as well as witnessing the young gorillas at play.

In the afternoon we explore a local community on foot, to gain insight into the ways of the Ugandan people living near Bwindi Park. See what rural life is like in this part of Africa, meet the locals and support the Buhoma community in the process. After our walk in Buhoma village we return to the intimate lodge and have a drink together, recounting our unforgettable adventures with the African Mountain Gorillas. 


Day 3: Bwindi Forest to Kampala or Entebbe – Uganda;


After breakfast we leave the community lodge, returning to Kampala along the Kasese-Fort Portal road. We travel via the Queen Elizabeth National Park game viewing en route. Wildlife sightings in the national park include elephants, lions, buffalo, waterbucks, warthogs and various birds.

Our scenic drive takes us through the foothills of Mount Rwenzori towards Fort Portal, where we stop for lunch. From Fort Portal we continue to Kampala or Entebbe bringing this 3 Day Gorilla Trekking Adventure in Uganda to a close. Airport drop-off can be arranged free of charge, if you are flying out on the last day of the safari.
