The 4 4-day fly in Gorilla Safar from Entebbe to Bwindi starts in Kampala and ends at Entebbe International Airport in Uganda. This Uganda safari will take you to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park to meet eye-to-eye with the endangered mountain gorillas. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is famous for being home to half of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas. It is one of Uganda’s oldest as well as most biologically diverse rainforests, with over 25,000 years of history and almost 400 species of plants that form the huge impenetrable forest that is evergreen.

It is home to approximately 400 mountain gorillas, 120 mammal species such as numerous primate species, and over 350 bird species, including 23 Albertine Rift endemics, and is the ancient home of the Batwa bush people. This is an ideal tour to fully enjoy nature, beautiful scenery, and numerous primate species, such as the miraculous mountain gorillas. The flight from Entebbe to Bwindi experience will reward you with stunning scenes of the gorillas where you will have a chance to see them for one hour as you take pictures.

This option is great for one who has little time and does not want to ride the 8-9 hour drive to the gorilla forest, giving them enough energy to track mountain gorillas the next day and still enjoy the aerial view of Western Uganda.

The flight here is approximately one hour and you will find our company representative at Kihihi airstrip already to transfer you to your booked lodge.

In the evening, you will engage in the Batwa community people around Bwindi forest and they will demonstrate their lifestyle to you as you get to know more about them. They will display how they used to hunt, cook and protect themselves in the forests.

The Batwa community experience is led by an experienced Batwa leader who was there before the eviction. The experience is a mimic of what used to be the pygmy Batwa life in the forest and when you get a chance to interact with the Batwa you will see their overflowing love for the forest and pain of eviction through their eyes. You will also get to know the mysterious stories of the Batwa as you continue to interact with them and get to witness their ancient homestead.

The Batwa community trail experience is a spectacular way of learning and enjoying the lifestyle and the culture of the most ancient endangered group of people in Africa with only 3,000 people alive. After this Batwa experience, you will return to your lodge to relax at the lodge while preparing for your gorilla trekking the next day.

Day 3: Morning Gorilla tracking experience- Relax at the lodg

Wake up early (0600am) to organize yourself and arrange the necessary equipment for mountain gorilla trekking, such as cameras, binoculars, and insect repellents, Dress appropriately for mountain gorilla trekking, such as long khaki or jean trousers, a long-sleeved shirt, water-resistant hiking boots, a rain jacket, heavy-duty gloves, and round hats. Have a heavy breakfast, get your packed lunch boxes, get enough drinking water and meet your safari guide to be transferred to the park information offices to be briefed about mountain gorilla trekking dos and don’ts, how to behave in the presence of mountain gorillas and the expectations, be allocated a mountain gorilla family to track, and get the ranger guides.

We would recommend you hire a porter to help you carry your packed bag and other items you would need during the mountain gorilla trek. Begin your forest walk in search of the endangered mountain gorillas in their natural habitats after a pre-mountain gorilla trekking session. The time taken before encountering your allocated mountain gorilla family is not known. However, it may be anywhere from 45 minutes to 4 hours depending on the movements and location of the gorilla family, therefore, you should be physically and mentally prepared to walk a long distance through the forest that is made of hills and with no clear walking trails that are only made at that particular time of tracking by your guide depending on the direction that can easily lead you to the location of the gorilla family.

That is why it is recommended to carry enough water to keep you hydrated and snacks to keep you energized since you use a lot of energy when walking through the forest in search of mountain gorillas. Once you encounter the mountain gorilla family, the excitement of seeing the mountain gorillas in their natural habitat will outweigh the hardship you went through while searching for them. A mountain gorilla family can be made up of several members, such as the giant silverback, who is always the head and protector of the family, mothers, infants, and juveniles. The time you will spend with the mountain gorillas, you will get to know much about their behaviors, how they socialize and be excited by their actions, like the playful babies, mothers grooming their babies, and Mr.

Silverback watching the situation silently as he is ready to protect the family from any kind of attack. You will spend a maximum of one hour with the mountain gorillas, and you will be free to capture as many photos and record videos as you want to keep your great memories with the mountain gorilla family in the jungle. After an hour with the mountain gorilla family, return to the trekking start point to receive your certificate in appreciation of your contribution towards the conservation of the endangered mountain gorillas in Uganda.

Join your guide, return to the lodge for refreshments and lunch, relaxation, dinner and overnight stay.
