Day by Day Overview
Upon arrival at Entebbe Airport, you will be met by a Dust Absolut guide who will transfer you to your accommodation for the night. You will rest and get ready for the next day’s activities and drive.
Your Driver/Guide will meet you at your guesthouse/hotel lobby where he will briefly run through the safari itinerary. You will then embark on your journey westwards and into the wild at Lake Mburo National Park. Upon arrival in the park, you will take part in a boat ride on the lake where lots of birdlife will be seen. Also, watch out for crocodiles and hippos. After the launch cruise, you will then proceed further inside the park for a stunning game-drive inside the park where giraffes, zebras, and antelopes will be seen. If lucky, perhaps even an elusive cat.
Embark on your journey to Bwindi Forest going through Kabale a small indigenous town, with beautiful scenery of hills and valleys, and terrace farming almost everywhere. Kabale and its geography are known as the ‘Switzerland of Africa”. Arrive in Kisoro in the early evening, just in time to rest and get ready for the next day’s gorilla trekking.
The long-awaited gorilla tracking experience is here! Tracking gorillas is one of the absolute highlights of your safari. You will have a very early breakfast and drive to the park entry for a pre-briefing during which you will be grouped into 8, assigned guides, and armed rangers, and then head into the forest. Trekking may take between 3 and 8 hours – depending on where the gorillas have wandered off, but every distance covered is well worth the effort. After you meet the gentle giants you are allowed an hour with them, then you will hike back to the park headquarters. The day ends with reminiscing about the day with dinner and overnight at a comfortable lodge/guesthouse.
On this day, hike to see the endangered golden monkeys of the Virunga massive. Golden monkey trekking takes place in Mgahinga National Park at 7 am. These rare species are also listed as endangered, and Mgahinga National Park currently has many habituated golden monkey troops that are available for visiting by tourists in the park.
This is the last day of this amazing itinerary, and we will drive to Entebbe. The drive is mostly smooth with a couple of photographic stops such as one at the Equator to buy souvenirs and also take multiple photographs.
