Day 1: Entebbe to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
Arrive at Entebbe airport and transfer to your 08:30 am or 12:30 pm flight to Kihihi. Once there you will be welcomed by your expert guide who will provide knowledge and assistance throughout your journey. Transfer to Bwindi Lodge, where you will stay for the next 2 nights. Here, you will have the chance to unwind and relax. Take your time to explore the grounds of the lodge with its clear mountain stream. The more adventurous can choose to visit the local village.
Day 2: Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park
After enjoying an early breakfast, you set off gorilla tracking. Trekking through the steep, densely forested hills and then finally coming across the gorillas camouflaged in the vegetation is an inspiring and privileged moment. Tracking in the Bwindi Impenetrable forest National Park requires stamina and can often take most of the day. Alternatively there are other activities and excursions on offer in and around the national park:
- Take a guided walk in the rainforest, home to several endemic bird species, clouds of butterflies and rare plant life. This walk offers excellent photographic opportunities and the knowledgeable guide will provide a great insight into this globally important habitat.
- Walk through the local village, and learn about community projects, such as the Amagara project that assists local farmers and their communities, and Bwindi Community Hospital that started as a health clinic under a tree and now provides vital medical and educational services to over 60,000 people. The Volcanoes Safaris Partnership Trust supports both projects.
- Discover the traditions of the Batwa Pygmies, and learn about the native tribal inhabitants of the forest. The indigenous people of Bwindi forest, though no longer resident in the forest, still practice many of their traditional hunter-gatherer skills.
Day 3: Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park
Either go gorilla tracking again – additional permits required, subject to availability- or opt for one of the other, gentler but equally rewarding alternatives available (see above).
