3 Days Bwindi Gorilla Trekking Safari
Day One: Uganda Primates Tour
Meet and greet and transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable forest. This is a whole day drive but you will have frequent stops to stretch legs. You will have lunch in Masaka or Mbarara and proceed driving through evergreen mountainous scenery and the winding roads. You will gaze in wonder and awe at the beautiful terraces that are characteristic of southwestern Uganda popularly known as the Switzerland of Africa. At last, you will enter the “Impenetrable” forest. Bwindi Impenetrable, a magnificent verdant swathe across the steep ridges of the Albertine Rift Valley – one of the few in Africa to have flourished throughout the last Ice Age – is home to roughly half of the world’s mountain gorillas. Dinner and overnight at Gorilla Forest Camp or Buhoma Community Camp.
Day Two: Bwindi Gorilla Tracking Safari
After an early breakfast, you will gather at the park headquarters for a briefing prior to the gorilla tracking activity. Together with a knowledgeable guide, you will head off into the thick rainforest forest to track these gentle giants. The time taken to search for these apes takes from between 1 hour to an entire day. This is because the gorillas do not stay in one place for very long. The gorilla trek involves moving up and down a steep mountainous terrain hence you need to be physically fit. Once you look into the eyes of these gentle giants, you will forget your aching limbs as this is a once in a lifetime experience! Later you may opt to have a Village walk around the Buhoma Community.
Day Three: End of Uganda Gorilla Safari
After breakfast, you depart Bwindi Impenetrable national park and procedd to Kampala with lunch en route. You will also have a stopover at the Mpambire Royal Drum makers.
