Upon arrival, you will be received by the assigned English-speaking Professional Tour Driver/Guide who will welcome you into the Pearl of Africa. Thereafter, you will hit the road for a transfer to Lake Mburo National Park. Depending on your arrival time, you will reach Mburo between the early afternoon hours and late evening hours. #Optional (extra cost): Just in case you have arrived early enough and are interested, you may go out for a breathtaking night game drive.

Alternatively, you may choose the morning bush/park walk (at extra cost USD 30 pp) in the presence of an armed ranger-guide. You will return to your accommodation then check out and proceed to Bwindi Impenetrable NP.

Bwindi has a big habitat for Mountain Gorillas in Uganda (harboring over 300 Mountain Gorillas – roughly half of the world’s population), including several habituated groups, which can be trekked.

DAY 3: Gorilla Trekking

Gorilla trekking Bwindi Forest and transfer to Lake Bunyonyi for relaxation.
Have breakfast and move to the rangers’ post. You will receive some briefing (from a ranger guide) on the dos and don’ts during trekking. Thereafter, you will enter the Bwindi Forest for your adventure. The beauty of this rain forest is spectacular! The area offers dramatic steeply forested landscape and is incredibly dense but crisscrossed by numerous animal trails allowing access to tourists. The time taken and the terrain vary with the movements of these great primates.

Once you have located a gorilla group, you will be allowed an hour in their presence. The thrill of spending time observing these gentle but endangered giants is unforgettable. Return to the accommodation, check out and transfer to Lake Bunyonyi. Lake Bunyonyi is framed by lush, green-terraced hills that reach a height of 2,200 – 2,478mt but it’s the 29 islands of various shapes and sizes scattered across the water that make it most magical — you could admire them all day.
