Tour Overview

With the introduction of scheduled flights to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, the home of the mighty mountain gorillas, gorilla trekking has been made more easily accessible. There is a choice of a morning or afternoon flight during which you will enjoy the stunning aerial views of Lake Victoria and the beautiful changing landscape. Trekking to find a gorilla family can be tough (2-6 hours), but it’s so worth it when you eventually see these amazing animals.
