Your driver guide will pick you from your hotel early after breakfast and depart for Bwindi impenetrable forest; Home of Mountain Gorillas. Expect a stopover at the Equator for photographs and continue to Mbarara where you will have another stop for lunch. This is a 6-9 hours’ journey and it goes through beautiful rolling hills of kigezi where you will see uncountable ankole long-horned cattle and chances of seeing antelopes, zebras and giraffes grazing along lake mburo reserves are high. Reach by late afternoon. Dinner and overnight at your lodge in Bwindi Impenetrable forest.
Wake up and prepare for the long waited experience. Have breakfast and be transferred by our driver to the park headquarters (with packed lunch) for briefing on how to behave while with Gorillas. Tracking time ranges between 2-9 hours depending on their movement. Tracking goes through steep rocks, climbing up and down through slippery and muddy jungle grounds, thus making it tiresome. However, the thrill of encountering these giant Apes erases the poor memories you went through in trying to find them. You will stay with them for 1hr for observation and photography. Descend to your hotel for a rest. After having a rest, go for a cultural walk in nearby communities of Batwa (Pygmies) where you will visit local schools and be entertained in some of the cultural dance of the community, visit local doctors and experience the local brew. Dinner and overnight at the lodge.
Have breakfast and hit the road to Kampala. Expect lots of game and scenic viewing en-route. Lunch in Mbarara and arrive Entebbe in the evening for your flight back home.
