Once in Mbarara you will stop to have your lunch before proceeding with the journey which will end at Bwindi Impenetrable forest.

Day Two: Gorilla Trekking

On this day you will take an early breakfast as you get ready for the most exciting experience of your Uganda safari. Our driver will pick you from the lodge/camp and take you to the park’s headquarters. There you will be briefed on mountain gorilla families and gorilla trekking in general. At 9:00 AM you will be taken to the forest where your day with mountain gorillas will officially start.

The gorilla trekking safari will involve a climb through the steep rocky forest. The number of hours to be spent on this exciting activity-which could be anything between 3 hours to a whole day-depends on the gorilla’s movements around the forest. Apart from mountain gorillas you will also have the pleasure of seeing other primates like the Colobus monkey, the Velvet monkey, the grey-cheeked Mangabeys, the red tailored monkey plus a number of bird species. This will be a tiring day but the exhaustion will be nothing compared to the experience of spending time with the beautiful monkey gorillas. This is a lifetime experience.

In the afternoon you will head back to the lodge for a sumptuous lunch. To help you relax and energize, you are advised to take a shower. The rest of your afternoon will be spent relaxing at the lodge where later in the evening you will be served dinner.

Accommodation: Gorilla Mist Camp (Full Board) or Lake Mutanda Chameleon Hill Lodge (Full Board)

Day Three: Bwindi-Kampala

This being your last day you will be driven back to Kampala after breakfast. You will stop at Mbarara town for lunch along the way.
