What to Expect
DAY 01: To Bwindi NP for your Budget gorilla trekking tour

Depart Entebbe\Kampala for your first day of Uganda Gorilla Trekking Tour; An 8-9 road transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park located in South western Uganda. Quite a long drive but worth it because you get to enjoy the countryside scenery, some of the most beautiful nature’s images all the way to the Virunga massive. Keep your cameras near you and our driver will definitely stop if you need him to so that you cam capture that beautiful moment.

You will have an en route stopover at the Equator crossing for photographic and simple experiment before continuing to Mbarara town for Lunch. After lunch, you will embark on your scenic drive to Bwindi NP or Kabale for overnight at Rushaga Gorilla Havens Lodge or Trekkers Tavern Lodge.

Main Destination: Bwindi Impenetrable National Forest

Accommodation: Rushaga Gorilla Havens Lodge.

Meals: Lunch & Dinner (Breakfast Not Included)

DAY 02: Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi National Park

After an early morning breakfast, you will drive to the Park headquarters for registration and joining others for a gorilla trekking briefing about the dos and the don’ts during your Uganda Gorilla Trekking Tour. Once this is done, you will trek through thick creepers and undergrowth with your guides to find the Gorillas, which can take you from half an hour to three quarters of the day.

The steeply forested landscape is incredibly dense but crisscrossed by numerous animal trails allowing access to tourists. On your trek, you are likely to spot other primates, birds and rare tree species. After finding the gorillas, you will be allowed to spend one hour with them before trekking back to the Park headquarter.

This is indeed an extraordinary feeling being with these beautiful yet endangered Creatures. You will be awarded a certificate for participating in gorilla trekking and thus contributing to the conservation of mountain gorillas.

Overnight at Rushaga Gorilla Havens Lodge or Trekkers Tavern Lodge.

Main Destination: Bwindi Impenetrable National Forest
