The 3 days (2 nights) gorilla experience starts and ends at Entebbe airport or Kampala and it offers the beautiful experience one can never forget to Bwindi Impenetrable forest National Park. The story of the Mountain Gorillas is remembered by every tracker.
Day 1, Transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park
After breakfast at your Hotel in Kampala, the guide will pick you up and transfer you to Bwindi park in South Western Uganda. Briefly, you will have a stop over at Mpambire drum village for drum making watching and later have another stop over at the Equator in Kayabwe for photographs and water experiments. Proceed with your journey. Reach Mbarara town and have lunch and later continue with your journey to Bwindi Park. Bwindi is one of the country World Heritage sites because of the rare Mountain Gorillas. Dinner and overnight stay at Wagtail Eco safari camp/Buhoma Community Bandas/Mahogany Springs/Gorilla Resort.
Day 2, Gorilla Trekking activity:
After breakfast, you will transfer to the park headquarters for the briefing by the park ranger guides before you set off for your Gorilla trek. You will be given rules to follow while in the forest before seeing the Gorillas and also when you are with the Gorillas. The rules are there so as to continue protecting these rare species and not to let them disappear. Under normal circumstances, the Gorilla trek has no fixed time of ending since it depends on where the Gorillas spend the night the day before the trekking day. However, it ranges from 2-9 hours and this basically depends on the movement of these primates. You need to be strong and physically fit since it involves walking along steep hilly tracks and also long distances. However, once one comes across the Gorillas, all the poor memories he has gone through, are easily forgotten and instead enjoy the one hour time with the Gorillas. You can take as many photographs as you want. After this, you will return to your lodge for dinner and overnight stay at Wagtail Eco safari camp/Buhoma Community Bandas/Mahogany Springs/Gorilla Resort.
Day 3, Transfer back to Kampala
After breakfast, you will transfer back to Kampala via Kabale a region commonly known as the “Switzerland of Africa”. Have lunch in Mbarara town and continue with your journey to Kampala. Drop off will be at your Hotel in Kampala or will be transferred to the Airport for your flight back home or to your next destination
