4 Days Gorillas and volcanoes Trek Safari
Day 1 Kampala/South-Western Uganda
Leave Kampala in the morning and drive southwards. A first stop over at the Equator, a famous spot for photography. For the rest of the journey, view the long horned Ankole cattle, papyrus, acacia woodland and terraced landscape of Kigezi highlands on your way to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Lunch enroute in Mbarara. Dinner and overnight at Bwindi Gorilla safari lodge or Nkuringo Lodge (C) or Buhoma Community – Kisoro Tourist Hotel (L.D).
Day 2: Gorilla trekking and optional community tour
After an early breakfast and briefing from the guides, set off for the gorilla tracking in the forest sanctuary. The activity starts at 8.00am. You need to carry packed lunch, drinking water, rain jacket and jungle boots while the rangers will provide you with a walking stick. The time taken to find the gorillas varies according to the movements of these marvelous primates. An encounter with an earth shaking 350 pound silver back or a baby gorilla is very exciting and never forgotten experience!. Dinner and overnight at Bwindi Gorilla safari lodge or Nkuringo Lodge (C) or Buhoma Community – Kisoro Tourist Hotel (B.L.D).
Day 3: Volcano Trek
Today we hike one of the three volcanoes in the area: Mt. Muhavura, Mt. Gahinga or Mt. Sabinyo. All offer incredible scenery, immense biodiversity, and fantastic views though most people chose to hike Mr. Muhavura. This area bordering Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo is a nature lover’s paradise!
Day 4: Depart Kampala
Depart early for the scenic return drive from Kisoro to Kampala. Stop just after the town of Masaka at Mpambiire drum village to see the Ugandan drum craftsmen at work. Arrive back in Kampala in the early evening, where the tour ends.
