Details of Three Day Uganda Gorilla Experience

DAY ONE - KIGALI - BWINDI IMPENETRABLE NATIONAL PARK

You'll depart from the Rwandan capital after an early breakfast and begin the long, picturesque drive north into Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.

Stopping along the way at the Rwanda-Uganda border for immigration formalities, you'll then continue on to the Ugandan town of Buhoma to overnight. 

Your drive will take you through densely forested valleys, past idyllic tea plantations and terraced farms, and into the very heart of the forests that the mountain gorillas call home.

DAY TWO - BWINDI IMPENETRABLE NATIONAL PARK

It's time for what is sure to be the highlight of your trip: a once in a lifetime opportunity to hike into the mountain rainforest and spend some time with the famed 'gorillas in the mist'.

Starting after an early breakfast, you'll attend your pre-trekking briefing before being assigned into a group and heading out into the forest on foot. There's no guarantee how long or short your trek will be, as it depends on the gorillas and the weather, so you could be in the park anywhere from one hour to six or more.

Regardless of how long or short the hike, the reward at the end is the same: a magical hour observing these magnificent creatures as they relax, play, and feed at the heart of the jungle.

Once your hike is complete, you'll return to your lodge for dinner and some well-earned rest.

For those with a little extra energy, a guided waterfall hike or a village tour can be arranged upon request.

DAY THREE - BWINDI IMPENETRABLE NATIONAL PARK - KIGALI

After breakfast, you'll make the return journey to Kigali for your onward travel.
