DAY 1: KAMPALA - BWINDI GORILLA PARK.
After breakfast, your driver will pick you up from the hotel and transfers you to Bwindi Impenetrable National park. We will stop at the Equator for pictures and lunch in Mbarara town. The journey takes you through the scenic country sides of western Uganda, via the beautifully placed Kigezi Highlands with nice terraces. You will know why the place is called ‘the Switzerland of Africa’.
We will arrive late in the evening; relax as we wait for dinner and overnight at Golden Monkey Guest House/Travellers Rest/Mutanda Lake resort/Chamelion Hill lodge.
DAY 2: GORILLA TRACKING IN BWINDI IMPENETRABLE FOREST.
After early breakfast, you will transfer to the park headquarters for briefing with packed lunch, and later set off along the tracks in the thick forest to go search for the great Mountain Gorillas. Depending on the movement of these humble giants the walk might take between 2-9 hours before you encounter the gorillas. The walk can be a bit tiresome, however, meeting these great apes and spending some time with them while looking deep into their expressive brown eyes, is an exhilarating and heart breaking wildlife encounter that Africa has to offer.
Time permitting, you can take a nature walk to nearby communities. Dinner and overnight at Golden Monkey Guest House/Travellers Rest/Mutanda Lake resort/Chamelion Hill lodge.
DAY 3: RETURN TRIP TO KAMPALA.
In the morning you will have breakfast and then pack your luggage to start on the journey back to Kampala/ Kigali.
