Cick for Details

Enjoy an early breakfast, then set off through the steep, densely forested hills in search of Mountain Gorillas. Tracking in the Bwindi Forest requires stamina and can often take most of the day but observing the gorillas in their natural habitat is awe inspiring.
Accommodation: Serengeti – Embalakai Authentic camps


Day 3 : Bwindi Forest – Uganda

On day three we rise early for breakfast, before the gorilla trek briefing at 8:00 am by rangers from the Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA). We then set off on our African Mountain Gorilla Trekking adventure in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.

Gorilla trekking is the highlight of visiting Uganda and one of the most memorable wildlife experiences in Africa. Embarking on this once-in-a-lifetime wildlife encounter we will view the highly endangered mountain gorillas in the wild. The guides lead you into the bush, pushing through the undergrowth to track the Bwindi gorillas. This gorilla walk can take up to 6 hours, so a reasonable degree of fitness and a sturdy pair of walking shoes are a must. Take a rain jacket, water and snacks along with you, but be sure to leave nothing behind in the forest.

After our rewarding trek through the jungle, we sit in the forest among the gentle mountain gorillas, listening to them communicating with one another and watching them interact. Marvel at the sheer size of the dominant adult male gorillas, called Silverbacks, savouring one of Africa’s most poignant wildlife encounters. After lunch in the forest, we take a well-deserved rest or enjoy some bird watching. Then we return to our intimate lodge to relax and recuperate after our unforgettable gorilla trek in the Bwindi Forest of Uganda.

In the afternoon we take a guided walk in the Buhoma Village to gain insight into the lives of the local people, living in the area around the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. This walk is part of an initiative that empowers the local people benefiting from tourism. The informative village walk starts from our accommodation and allows visitors to see how ingenious the local people are in their day-to-day lives.

At the end of the day, we have dinner and unwind at our accommodation. Breakfast / Packed Lunch / Dinner


Day 4 : Bwindi Impenetrable Forest to Kampala & Entebbe – Uganda

On the final day of our Uganda Gorilla Trekking Safari we have an early breakfast before making our way back to Kampala and then Entebbe.

We travel via Mbarara and the Igongo Cultural Village where we encounter the Ankole and Bahima people. At the Igongo Center we get a glimpse of the culture and ways of these Ugandan people, learning a bit about their history. Lunch is enjoyed en route and we pause at the equator in Uganda to take photographs before continuing to Kampala and Entebbe. Airport drop-off can be arranged free of charge if you are flying out on the last day of the safari.
