3 Days Bwindi Gorilla Safari from Entebbe – Bwindi impenetrable NP is a home to over 600 mountain gorillas. Paying a visit can bless you with sights of almost ½ of the world’s total gorilla population (1060) not forgetting the mighty hills of Kigezi with spectacular scenery. In addition, the park owns a multitude of flora and fauna among which include 200 trees, 310 butterflies, 51 reptiles, 120 mammals, 350 bird types and 88 moths.
Day 1: Kampala to Bwindi Impenetrable N/Park
Before departure to the park at exactly 7:00am, expect to have a heavy morning breakfast that will sustain you during the 8 hour drive southwards before reaching your accommodation property located in the southern side of the park.
From Kampala, the surfaced road to Kabale through Mbarara and Ntungamo is the only direct route. This connects to the slow dusty road which winds via the highlands to Ruhija gorilla region through Rubanda. The Ruhija trailhead (about 500km from Kampala) can be accessed by various roads from numerous directions. On your way expect to encounter the equator, hospitable people, rolling hills and huge plantations.
Lunch and relaxation are available at Igongo cultural hotel or Agip Motel in Mbarara town. This is accompanied by an evening sight-viewing encounter of the gorgeous Ruhija landscape.
Day 2: Bwindi Forest Gorilla Tracking To Lake Bunyonyi
Before entering the gorilla sanctuary for your tour highlight, you will have some breakfast accompanied by a briefing from Uganda Wildlife Authority Rangers. The beauty of the forest is a true reflection of the dramatic dense forested landscape engrossed by various animal trails that offer easy access for the tourists.
The forest’s terrain and daily movements of gorillas are the key determinants of trekking time. A glance on the habituated group of these apes offers you at least an hour in their presence as you observe their movements, feeding and plays. Indeed, it is a moment turned into a memory!
Having had such a great encounter, you return to the lodge before proceeding to L. Bunyonyi to discover over 20 islands (each having a special story) on a boat cruise. The lake also inhabits an amazing population of birds.
Day 3: Return to Kampala and Departure via Entebbe
This long but interesting journey back to Kampala happens after a delicious breakfast plus an optional hike or canoe on Lake Bunyonyi. It also involves a stopover at the Uganda Equator monument (Mpigi district) where you will enjoy sumptuous lunch, relax, photography and purchase of Africa’s reminders of the past.
Having arrived in Kampala, it is your choice to continue to Entebbe airport for departure or sleepover in any hotel of your choice. This marks the end of this elegant three-day gorilla trekking tour in Uganda.
