Itinerary

Day 1Kigali – Southern part of Bwindi

Upon arrival at kanombe airport, your guide will pick you and drive you to the Rwanda/Uganda boarder.. (Note that we recommend arrival with a morning flight or an extra pre-night in Kigali).

After all the immigration clearance, you will then drive 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.

With breathtaking views over Lake Mulehe there are many other activities on offer such as hiking in the Virungas, boat trips on Lake Mulehe or Lake Mutanda, village walks, forest walks and golden monkey trekking at Mgahinga NP.

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is best known for its mountain gorillas as well as spectacular birds. There are 23 of the 24 Albertine Rift endemics including the African green broadbill, bar tailed trogon and other beautiful forest species.

Accommodation: Lake Mulehe Gorilla lodge on Full Board Basis (breakfast, lunch and dinner)

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.
Accommodation on Full Board Basis (breakfast, lunch and dinner)
