Day 2: Go Gorilla Trekking

Go gorilla tracking (subject to permit availability at time of booking) in the northern part of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.

The hike to meet the mountain gorillas doesn’t come on a silver plate. It involves walking up steep densely forested hills before finally coming across the gorillas camouflaged in the vegetation. The trek is an inspiring moment taking you through the park. Tracking in Bwindi requires stamina and can often take most of the day.

After getting your certificate, have a hot meal. Travel to the nearby Rushaga Sector in the Southern part of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.

Overnight at Rushaga Gorilla Havens (Budget) / Rushaga Gorilla Camp (Midrange) / Four Gorillas Lodge or Chameleon Hill Lodge (Luxury)

Day 3: Second Gorilla Trek in Bwindi

After breakfast, go for a second gorilla trek in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. This time you will track one of the habituated gorilla families in the Rushaga Sector of Bwindi.

After the trek, return to the lodge for a hot meal. You choose to have a leisurely evening or go for a nature walk or local community tour around Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.

Day 4: Return to Kampala

Early start for Kampala or Entebbe. Have a brief stopover at Mbarara for lunch. Drop off at the hotel or Entebbe Airport.
