Uganda Mountain Gorilla Tracking Safaris & Tours
[ACUG01]: Uganda Gorilla Express Safari (3 Days)
Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is located in southwestern Uganda on the edge of the western rift valley covering 331 sq. kms. It is one of the largest natural forests in East Africa, supporting a large number of plants and animals not found elsewhere. This forest is a sanctuary for almost half the world's population of mountain gorillas (about 330 of 600), which is the rarest race of gorilla. Bwindi is one of the richest ecosystems in Africa that includes mountain gorilla, chimpanzee and 8 other species of primate.

The main activity in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is "gorilla tracking" to the habituated four families of mountain gorillas. Other wildlife includes but not limited to Elephant, bush pig, giant forest hog, many species of bats and rodents, at least 346 species of birds including rare forest birds, at least 14 species of snakes, 27 species of frogs and toads, 6 chameleons, 14 lizards, skinks and geckos, at least 202 species of butterfly. There are also several endangered species of birds with limited ranges. Learn More >
ITINERARY: Uganda Gorilla Express Safari Adventure
Day 1: Kampala - Bwindi Impentrable National Park
Very early, you will be picked up from your accommodation by your driver guide and set to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. This is a very long journey approximately 9 - 10 hours drive. With a stop at the craft village at the equator for pictures and crafts shopping, continue for lunch in Mbarara and a chance to stretch you legs and later proceed to Kisoro then cross to Rwanda and head for Kiinigi guest house for Dinner and overnight, at Bwindi Gorilla Resort, A Luxury – Upper class Hotel with Air Conditioned rooms F/B

Day 2: Bwindi - Full Day Gorilla Trekking
After breakfast with packed lunch, Hikers will love the adventure of tracking the gorillas in the beautiful ecosystem of the park. As gorilla tracking is unpredictable, it is difficult to foresee how many hours you will actually hike. It may take up to 8 hours, and you should be prepared to a walk long distance in steep and muddy conditions, sometimes with rain overhead, before you encounter any gorillas. Anyone who has made the trek will be quick to say that in any circumstances the thrill of seeing the gorillas makes it all worthwhile. For conservation purposes, time spent with the gorillas is limited to one hour. The ranger guide always briefs you on how to behave with these gentle giants. Dinner and overnight at, Bwindi Gorilla Resort, A Luxury – Upper class Hotel with Air Conditioned rooms F/B

Day 3: Bwindi - Back To Kampala + Depart
Have your early breakfast before embarking on our return to Kampala, drive down through the grassed and terraced escarpments of southwestern Uganda while taking in the breathtaking sights of the hills of the region known as ‘the little Switzerland of Africa’. This area is a highly fertile, mountainous region with steep sided hills covered from top to bottom in neatly terraced cultivated rows. Continue through Mbarara, the land of the long horned Ankole cattle. A remarkable highlight of this journey is the Equator line and surely you will cross it as we have a brief stop here. Arrive Kampala in the evening to be dropped at your accommodation or at Entebbe Airport for your onward travel arrangements.
IMPORTANT TRAVEL NOTES:
Bwindi Impenetrable, 331 kms, is located in South Western Uganda, on the edge of the Albertine Rift Valley, on an altitude range from 1.160 m to 2.607m. This is a real tropical rainforest, spread over a series of steep ridges and valleys. It is regarded as one of the most biologically diverse forest in Africa. In the local language "bwindi" (from "mubwindi") means "dark place", referring to the impenetrable nature for human beings of the swamp located into the South East of the actual Park, according to people's legends.
