Day by Day Overview

Upon arrival to Entebbe airport, you will be met by our representative and transferred to your hotel.  The remainder of the day is at your leisure. Entebbe is located on the northern shores of Lake Victoria, Africa’s largest lake, approximately 37 kilometres southwest of the Uganda capital of Kampala. With its pleasant climate you can enjoy and explore many places such as parks, beaches, islands, botanical gardens and national zoo.

Your flight this morning will depart Entebbe and arrive in Kihihi or Kisoro airstrip where you will be met by our representative and transferred by road to your accommodation in Bwindi.  Flying over the third largest lake in the world will give you an incredible perspective of just how beautiful Lake Victoria is dotted with islands and fishing villages which can be seen at take off and landing.

The transfer from Kihihi airstrip to the Buhoma sector of Bwindi will take around 1.5 hours and the road can be a little bit bumpy. It gives you enough time to contemplate your gorilla adventure ahead as well as being captivated by the incredible scenery synonymous with this part of Uganda. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, situated in south western Uganda, on the edge of the Western Rift Valley, is home to 326 gorillas, almost a half of the world’s population of mountain gorillas.  Bwindi is also a bird watchers haven with 346 species of birds – an experienced bird watcher can identify up to 100 species in a day!

Breakfast, lunch & dinner included

This morning you will enjoy an early breakfast before transferring to the national park headquarters for your gorilla trekking briefing. Afterwards you will enter the forest and enjoy the early morning beauty and freshness of the forest, which is home to more than half the world’s mountain gorillas.  Tracking the gorillas can take several hours of challenging walking in wet forest before spending an hour with them, an amazing encounter.
