Tour Itinerary

Day 1 Kampala/Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

The tour begins at 7am in the morning of Day 1 at your Kampala hotel (not included). Please be on time to meet your driver/guide at the front entrance of the hotel. A brief departure meeting will be held in the hotel reception area about general and specific aspects of the trip before setting off to Bwindi.

Day 2 Bwindi Impenetrable National Park (1B)

A designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, Bwindi's Impenetrable Forest is a true African jungle. About half of the world's mountain gorillas live here. Ugandan authorities are fiercely protective of this natural treasure and permit only a maximum of 8 passengers per day (currently) to visit the gorillas. Start with a short drive to the park headquarters and meet with your excellent local guides. The guides will provide a talk on the etiquette of gorilla trekking. The trekking group will then head into the forest where the gorillas were the night before and track from that point. If desired, porters can be hired and will carry your personal items and assist you during the trek. Included Activities: Gorilla Trekking Transport: Private Vehicle

Day 3 Bwindi Impenetrable National Park/Kampala (1B)
