gorillas tracking in Bwindi Impenetrable ForestOverview

The 3 Day Uganda Gorilla Trekking Tour is a magical journey into the isolated jungles of  East Africa where you should expect an experience like no other. Being close to a family of wild mountain gorillas in the deep misty jungle of Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Nationap Park is utterly magical; nothing can ever prepare you for such an experience – their sheer beauty, brawn and soulful brown eyes, their astonishingly human-like expressions or their extraordinarily gentle demeanour. One hour with these gentle creatures – 60 minutes, is all it takes to change your whole life’s experience.

This 3 Day Uganda Gorilla Trekking Tour is a budget safari that is designed to allow every traveller to have a chance to spend time with the world’s endangered mountain gorillas. If you’re a luxury traveller, don’t be bounced off yet. This Uganda Gorilla Trekking Tour can be tailor made to suit your style too. Enquire with the Encounter Africa Safaris’ team of experts to make sure they get everything right – including accommodation, transportation, meals and the gorilla permits.

NOTE:

Depending on the availability of gorilla permits at the time of your confirmation, you may trek gorillas in Buhoma, Ruhija, Rushaga or Nkuringo.

DAY 1: Transfer To Bwindi For the 3 Day Uganda Gorilla Trekking Tour

Depart Entebbe/ Kampala for your first day of 3 Day Uganda Gorilla Trekking Tour; An 8-9 road transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park located in Southwestern 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 can capture that beautiful moment.

You will have an en-route stopover at the Equator crossing for the 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.

DAY 2: Gorilla Tracking in Bwindi National Park

After 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.
