Details of Three Day Fly In Gorilla Experience

DAY ONE - ENTEBBE - BWINDI IMPENETRABLE NATIONAL PARK

You'll board a flight from Entebbe to Kihihi Airstrip, located just 45 minutes' drive from Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.

Your drive to Buhoma will be a scenic trip through tea plantations and terraced farms, and you'll arrive in time for an afternoon cultural experience as you visit with the local Batwa  - a tribe of pygmy people who call the forest home.

You'll then overnight close to the park.

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 - ENTEBBE

After breakfast, you'll return to Kihihi Airstrip for your return flight to Entebbe.
