Itinerary

Day 1: Transfer from Kampala to Bwindi National Park
Our Company guide will pick you from the hotel early in the morning to start your journey South- West to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. A short stop will be made on your way at the crafts village where you will meet the royal drum makers and at the Equator for a briefing talk and an opportunity for photographs. Lunch will be had in Mbarara, then proceed on the way you will have a chance to look at the long horned cattle from Ankole and amazing ever green and hilly highlands referred to as Ugandan Switzerland as the journey continues the road goes higher were you get to view the peaks
of the Virunga volcanoes. You then arrive to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest home of the mountain gorillas and spend a night at Gorilla forest camp/Buhoma lodge/Gorilla safari lodge/ Gorilla resort/Engagi lodge/Buhoma community bandas where you will have dinner and rest to the sounds of the rain forest. The transit time from Kampala to Bwindi is approximately 8 to 10 hours.

Day 2: Mountain Gorilla Tracking in Bwindi
Up relatively early for a hearty breakfast to give you the energy needed for gorilla tracking. Before 8:00 am report to the ranger station for registration and a talk by one of the rangers; the guides will then take you through the bush pushing your way through the undergrowth, parting thick creepers, to track the gorillas. (This trek can take from half an hour to 5 hours – a reasonable degree of fitness is required as well as a sturdy pair of walking shoes) Sit in the forest among 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. It’s amazing to think there are only about 650 of these beautiful creatures left!
If you have the energy this afternoon, take a guided walk on the Munyaga River trail, which is an ideal short walk. This trail leads to three delightful crystal clear waterfalls, and there is a profusion of tree ferns, epithytic ferns, orchids and Bwindi’s colorful array of butterflies. Here you may also see birds and primates from the forest edge.
OR If you have the afternoon free, how about guided villages walk and see how the Ugandans live! Overnight at Gorilla forest camp/Buhoma lodge /Gorilla Resort/Buhoma Community Bandas (Full Board)
