Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival at Entebbe International Airport

On arrival at Entebbe International Airport, you will be met by our representative who will transfer you to hotel in Entebbe.

We have several optional activities around Entebbe that you could engage in depending on your flight arrival time and these include; a day trip to Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary, birding at the botanical gardens and for keen birders, a visit Mabamba swamp to catch sight of the rare shoebill and plenty of other bird species is a must see.

Overnight: Boutique Hotel Number 5

Day 2: Coffee Farm Tour & Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge

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 3: 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 4: Flight to Entebbe

Great great service!
It’s my 1st time going to Africa and I didn’t even know where to start. Thanks to Safari.com (Jayson and Catherin), I simply have not had to worry about anything. Their service and help has gone beyond any travel agent I’ve ever experienced. Any doubt I have, they were responsive, quick and efficient. And always so so nice.

Dorothy was absolutely amazing my dates…
Dorothy was absolutely amazing my dates on my Safari change a couple of times and she was more than accommodating making everything work for me with no stress. The resort she picked for me is absolutely amazing and I cannot wait to stay there. I’m also staying 3 nights in Cape Town and she took care of my hotel and of all my connecting flights . Was a big relief and spoke to her on the phone a couple of times. Very sweet highly recommend if you want a stress free vacation

Great service from Jayson at Safari.com
Jayson and his team have worked hard to help us put together a safari package that would hit all the points on our wish list. After weeks of work, when we came with some changes to the itinerary, he worked it in and added time in a location we hadn't considered, but we think is worth the time. They provided lot's of useful information and respond quickly to our frequent questions. Though we will not be taking our trip for a few weeks yet, we are excited and looking forward to having a once in a lifetime experience!
