Day by Day Overview

An airport or hotel pick up and a short briefing before leaving Kigali, heading towards Uganda and the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Cross the border and continue to your lodge where you will relax for the remainder of the day surrounded by the beautiful sounds of the forest.

Overnight: Broadbill Forest Camp (budget) | Gorilla Mist Lodge (mid-range) |  Silverback Lodge (luxury)
Meal plan: breakfast, lunch & dinner

After an early breakfast, you will proceed to the national park’s headquarters for a briefing before making your way into the forest. Trekking may take a while depending on where the gorillas are but when you find them you will spend up to an hour observing these gentle giants during a very emotional and moving experience. Watch them interact and take photographs before making your way back to your lodge.

Overnight: Broadbill Forest Camp (budget) | Gorilla Mist Lodge (mid-range) |  Silverback Lodge (luxury)
Meal plan: breakfast, lunch & dinner

Wake up and enjoy a leisurely breakfast before heading out to meet the Batwa Tribe that live in the area and hunt and gather in the forest to survive as they have for generations. The Batwa people have been marginalized by most of Uganda’s other ethnic groups and as a result rarely leave the forest. Experience some of their culture with a traditional song and dance demonstration and enjoy seeing the pride it sparks in them. Return to your lodge to freshen up and have lunch before returning to Kigali for your flight.
