Itineraries

Day 1

Drive to the Home of Gorillas

Your 3 Day Gorilla Trekking Adventure in Uganda starts with pick-up from your pre-tour hotel in
Kampala/Entebbe or Entebbe International Airport not later than at 7:30am. Drive to Mbarara,
travelling via Masaka. We pause at the Equator to take photographs of the crossing, stretch our
legs, and enjoy some snacks. Then we continue to Igongo Cultural village where we break our
journey for lunch and then head to Bwindi Forest. The dense rainforest of Bwindi, famous for
its gorilla population, is one of the most fertile and rich in the world, being home to a variety of
primates, animals, insects, and exotic birds. Take your well-deserved rest at Engagi Lodge (Fullboard)

Day 2

Mountain Gorilla trekking

Mountain gorillas are truly gentle giants found in Bwindi impenetrable forest and Mgahinga
gorilla national park in Uganda. The Bwindi impenetrable forest is abounding with life hosting
species of birds, butterflies, primates, mammals, and trees. Your ranger guide will guide you
in conjunction with early trackers to the enormous and rare mountain gorillas deep in the
jungles of Bwindi. The trekking experience takes anything from one hour (rarely) to about 8
hours to accomplish, you only have one hour with gorillas to capture your finest moment.
Those not interested in gorilla tracking can take a community village walk or a short guided forest
walk. As you reminisce on your gorilla experiences we depart for Lake Bunyonyi, the 2nd
the deepest lake in Africa. Enjoy stunning scenery – interlocking hills terraced by the locals as they
practice farming named the “Switzerland of Africa” by Churchill, the great British diplomat.

watching, or hike up a steep hill for more views of the lake and its islands. Alternatively, you can
