WHAT TO EXPECT – YOUR TRIP ITINERARY
Day 1: Kampala – Bwindi
Leaving Kampala very early stop at Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, that is Kabale in the Western Region of Uganda, it’s almost a full day’s drive through the beautiful Mother Nature to the ancient rain-forests of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. On the way, skirt the north-eastern shores of Lake Victoria, and climb into the mountainous south-western region of Uganda through terraced hillsides dotted with traditional settlements. Expect to arrive at our picturesque space on the edge of the forest in the late afternoon. Overnight at the Lodge
Drive Duration: 4-6 hours
Day 2: Bwindi gorilla trekking; Bwindi is a magnificent green swathe of dense rain-forest and is one of the most biologically diverse areas on earth and a recently proclaimed World Heritage Site. Begin your gorilla trek in the early morning, and set off into the tangled and mist-shrouded forests with guides and trackers who are very experienced at locating the gorillas by finding the nest the family had used the previous night. The search for these majestic animals goes through thick untamed rain-forest, where you will be scrambling over mossy rocks and through deep undergrowth and it can be arduous at times. But when you come face to face with the gorillas for the first time, the trek will be more than worth it, and watching gorillas in their natural habitat is a memory that will last a lifetime. After spending an hour with the gorillas we head back to the base camp for a late lunch and a relaxing afternoon.
Day 3: Bwindi – Kampala Stop
At: Kampala Fair, Kampala, Central Region Departing early in the morning start your journey back to Kampala stopping for lunch en route. Expect to arrive back in the city in the early evening after a quick but exhilarating visit to the mountain gorillas.
