This short trip is tailored for those who are short of time or those looking for a great post-trip extension after a wildlife safari in Kenya, Tanzania or South Africa. Enjoy deeply moving experiences when you come face-to-face on foot with endangered mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. This safari includes flights over the beautiful highlands of Uganda boasting incredible rugged terrains and an opportunity to take a community walk and interact with the locals.

Day 1: Arrival at Bwindi

Enjoy an early breakfast and transfer to airport for your domestic flight to Kisoro. Flight time is approximated 1 hour.

On your arrival in Kisoro you will be welcomed by an expert guide and head for a community tour that includes a visit to a coffee farm. At the coffee farm, you will have the opportunity to learn about the sustainable farming practices in the Virunga massif which is a great way to promote social change through ecotourism.

After the tour, you will transfer to the Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge arriving in time for lunch & time to enjoy panoramic views of the Bwindi Forest. A recently proclaimed World Heritage site, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is one of the most biologically diverse areas on earth and its unique, precious flora sustains roughly half of the world population of mountain gorillas – believed to number just 600. There’s also a substantial chimpanzee population and research shows that Bwindi is the only forest in Africa in which these two apes live together.

Overnight: Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge

Day 2: Gorilla Trekking Experience

Following an early breakfast at the lodge, you will drive to the park headquarters for a morning briefing from the rangers before you enter the gorilla sanctuary.

Throughout the trek, you will be accompanied by experienced guides and trackers who will offer insightful information about the endangered mountain gorillas. Once you have found the gorillas, you will be allowed to spend 1 hour observing them from a 10-meter distance. The thrill of your encounter will erase the difficulties of the potentially strenuous trek.

Each encounter is different and has its own rewards, but you are likely to enjoy the close view of adults feeding, grooming, and resting as the youngsters frolic and swing from vines in a delightfully playful display. After tracking transfer back to your lodge for dinner and overnight.

Overnight: Nkuringo Mountain Gorilla Lodge

Day 3: Flight to Entebbe

After an early breakfast, depart Bwindi to Kisoro Airstrip for your scheduled flight back to Entebbe International Airport.

To be honest, we were a bit picky since it was our honeymoon and at the same time, Safari was our dream travel destination. However, we were able get help from Kim and finally ended up with perfect plan. She was very helpful, kind and meticulous person fortunately. She has provided a complete schedule that reflects all of our requirements and, of course, we would encourage safari.com to any consumer considering traveling to Africa.

Fantastic travel agent for African safari family trip!
Wow! Shann was and is fantastic! She figured out a way to make our entire trip work. We are going on a 2 week trip to South Africa and Botswana. She really helped tie it all together as a wonderful, cohesive trip. She is super nice and super smart and very knowledgeable. She is also flexible and thoughtful, etc., etc. When the chips were down (and we literally were considering pulling the plug on the whole trip), she found a way to make the entire itinerary work and got us excited about our wonderful adventure! Highly recommend!
