3 Day Uganda Gorilla Tour

Day 1: Transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park

After a fully served breakfast at your Hotel in Kampala, you will set out together with your driver guide and transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable forest National Park in South Western Uganda.

En route to the Park, you will have a brief stop over at the Equator for water experiments and also get a chance to stand at a point where the two hemispheres start from. Continue with the journey and have another stopover at Mpambire drum village basically known as drum making village. You will have lunch in Mbarara town.

Later after lunch, you will proceed with your Journey to the Park headquarters in Buhoma.

Dinner and overnight at Gorilla forest Camp or Gorilla resort for Up market/ Lake Kitandara camp or Buhoma lodge for Mid range/Buhoma community Bandas for budget

Day 2: Gorilla Tracking Experience

After breakfast at the lodge, you will go to the park headquarters for briefing from the Uganda wildlife Authority ranger guides. After the briefing, the ranger will lead you into the thick impenetrable forest to start your search for the endangered rare species of Mountain Gorillas.

The gorilla search always continues from the place where they were last seen the previous day. Upon reaching the area where these famous species are, you will only be allowed to interact with them for only one hour and you should always keep maximum silence while with these Gorillas. You are allowed to take photographs and so one.

To find the Gorillas, it’s such a tiresome experience since it can take you almost 3-8 hours to find them. However, once you meet these gorillas, you will easily forget the hatches you have gone through to find them and instead save the good memories you will experience with them.

After the interaction, you will return late to the lodge for dinner and overnight stay as above.

Day 3: Transfer Back to Kampala

After an early breakfast at the lodge, you will drive back to Kampala with your lunch en route in Mbarara town. On your way back, you will pass via Kabale commonly known as the Switzerland of Africa because of its hills and beautiful scenery.

Reach Kampala late evening and drop off will be at your Hotel in Kampala.
