Itinerary

Day 1Arrive in Entebbe International Airport, Fly to Kisoro, Bwindi

After an early breakfast, your guide will transfer you to the airport at 6:00am and then catch you scheduled flight to Kisoro. You will be met by another guide at the airstrip who will then drive you to Lake Mulehe Gorilla lodge towards the Virunga Mountain Range. The Lodge is in the southern sector of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, approximately 1793m above sea level, and where the habituated Rushaga, and Nkuringo gorilla groups are to be found as well as Mount Mgahinga National Park.

Day 2Gorilla Trekking

Time to trek the gorillas. Set off to the departure point for a full briefing and to meet your gorilla trek guide. The guides will have been identifying the position of each gorilla group and know which is the closest departure point to trek from. The hiking is through thick, verdant rain-forest. With your guide and porter using a machete to clear a path and assist you up and down steep terrain, spend time with the gorillas in their natural habitat is an amazing and unforgettable experience.

The final trek times can vary enormously according to where the gorillas have moved to but most guests spend an hour with these amazing wild animals. If time permits, there are additional activities, unique to Bwindi, which you can participate in during the afternoon.
