4 days value for money

Day 1

Airport Pickup

This is an express, value-for-money gorilla tracking tour where you will have an experience with mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Gorilla tracking ranks among one of the absolute highlights of a trip to Africa for most travellers, and the feeling that you get being so near to one of our closest relatives is hard to describe.

Mountain gorillas are one of the world’s most endangered apes. It is estimated that there are only about 880 left throughout the world. Almost half of them can be found in Uganda, and populations can also be found in neighbouring Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Day 2

Entebbe to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

Today after breakfast, you will be picked up from Kampala or Entebbe and transferred to Lake Mutanda in the southwestern part of Uganda close to the borders with Rwanda and Congo. You will cross a beautiful part of the country often referred to as ‘the Switzerland of Africa’. You will see the great countryside and bamboo forest and have great views over the Virunga Mountains. You will have en route lunch.

Journey Time: 10 hours
Accommodation: Mutanda Lake Resort
Meal plan: All meals.

Day 3

Gorilla Tracking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

Today is the day. You will encounter one of Bwindi’s endangered mountain gorillas. For most people, this is the absolute highlight of their tour in Uganda. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park boasts both mountain gorillas and chimpanzees—the only forest in Africa that can make this claim. It also hosts five other species of primates, 113 species of mammals, over 200 species of butterflies and 360 species of birds. The gorillas you track belong to one of nine habituated family groups that can tolerate the presence of humans for a brief period every day.

The time taken to track the gorillas can be as few as 2 hours to as many as 7 hours. Once the gorillas have been located, your group will be allowed a maximum of one hour with them. Coming face-to-face with a mountain gorilla is a truly humbling and emotional experience. This is a fantastic and privileged opportunity to get up close and personal with Uganda’s very own ‘Gorillas in the Mist’.

Journey Time: 1 hour each way.

Day 4

Return to Kampala

After breakfast at the lodge, you will drive back to Kampala or Entebbe (Airport). As you pass through the equator, there will be a stop for the requisite snapshot and a bit of souvenir shopping. Your accommodation for tonight is not included in the program. If you wish to depart tonight from Entebbe Airport, make sure your flight is at 10:00 p.m. or later. If you want us to book one (or more) nights in Kampala and/or Entebbe, please let us know.
