Upon arrival inside the park, you will be amazed by the beautiful landscape while sighting warthogs and other wildlife on a drive to the top of the Murchison Falls where the views are breathtaking.

Trek through the rain forest and bamboo-covered slopes, accompanied by an Uganda Wildlife Authority guide and other trackers, in search of a mountain gorilla family. The walking can sometimes be tough and long, but when you catch a glimpse of the magnificent silverback, any discomforts will be quickly forgotten. Due to the nature of the activity, you will have a packed lunch. After gorilla trekking, you will drive through the terraced hills to Lake Bunyonyi for a relaxing evening at the resort with a stunning view of Lake Bunyonyi. You can even have a canoe ride on the lake to discover its scattered islands (optional). You will later check-in at your lodge for dinner and overnight.
