Day 5: Transfer to Entebbe

After breakfast, you will transfer to the airstrip for your flight to Entebbe via Kisumu for immigration. This flight is in a smaller aircraft and helps us avoid the travel via Nairobi. On arrival in Entebbe depending on time, you can connect directly to Bwindi impenetrable national park or overnight in Entebbe and transfer the next day.

Day 6: Transfer to Bwindi impenetrable national park

Your day will start after an early breakfast and you will embark on your gorilla safari southwards to Bwindi impenetrable forest. The journey will offer you highway sights of rural and semi-urban Uganda with several fruit & vegetable markets along the roads, craft and drum makers and a stop at Uganda’s Equator monument where you will cross to the southern hemispheres. After the experience at the Equator, the drive will continue with a stop over in Mbarara for lunch before proceeding to Bwindi with short bathroom stopovers and picture sessions of landscape and other attractions.

Day 7: Gorilla trekking in Uganda

Today early morning your driver guide will pick you up from the lodge and transfer you to the briefing point at 7am before you start your gorilla trek at 8 am. On arrival at the briefing place, you will be welcomed and given seats until time of briefing as your driver guide registers you with the ranger on duty to be allocated a gorilla family. You will eventually meet your ranger guide and start your gorilla trek in the jungles of Bwindi.

We advise you to hire a porter to carry your day pack because sometimes the gorillas could be located a distance far from the start of your trek, they can also help push or pull you along the steep slippery paths in the forest.
