Day by Day Overview

Today, you will be welcomed at Kigali airport by one of our company representatives. If you have an early arrival time you can enjoy a city tour visiting the Genocide Museum and the Caplaki Crafts Center. Then head to your lodge in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. If you arrive late, you will need to have a night in Kigali before heading to Bwindi (extra cost).

You will have two nights in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, home to over half of the world’s mountain gorilla population. Interacting with these gentle giants is one of the most moving experiences that Africa has to offer and should not be missed! The ancient rainforest of Bwindi spans 321 sq km and boasts 90 mammal species, a range of primates, as well as 23 Albertine Rift endemic bird species, including the African Green Broadbill, the Bar Tailed Trogon and many others. Relax in the evening and get ready for the following day’s gorilla tracking.

These include batwa (pygmy) trail, village walk, comunity visits and curio shopping to name just a few
