Day 2: Queen Elizabeth to Bwindi Forest Park.
After breakfast in the morning depart with morning game drive in Queen Elizabeth exploring the north eastern area along Kasenyi Plains (also known as Mweya), near Lake George, and the Queens Mile
Afterward proceed to the impressive craters of the western Rift Valley escarpment and the Ishasha section of Queen Elizabeth National Park. We take a game drive en route, looking out for wildlife, especially the tree-climbing lions found in this southern part of the game park.
After this rewarding game drive we travel south to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, arriving in the evening at the lodge or camp for dinner and overnight.
Day 3: Bwindi Forest Gorilla Trekking.
Today we set off on the once-in-a-lifetime experience of trekking mountain gorillas in the wild. The day starts with an early morning breakfast, before meeting up with our guide from the Uganda Wildlife Authority, for a briefing on the gorilla trekking excursion.
We then head off into the dense vegetation of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, best known for endangered gorilla trekking, considered the highlight of visiting Uganda and for many the high point of their travels in Africa.
This gorilla walk can take up to six hours, so a reasonable degree of fitness and a sturdy pair of walking shoes are required.
The adventure trek through the jungle takes us in search of a family group of gorillas.
In the afternoon we explore a local community on foot, to gain insight into the ways of the Ugandan people living near Bwindi Park. After our village walk, we return to the camp and have a drink together, recounting our unforgettable adventures with African Mountain Gorillas.
Day 4: Bwindi to Kampala & Entebbe.
We enjoy an early breakfast on day four and then return to Kampala, visiting Igongo Cultural Village en route. Here we learn about the Bahima and Ankole cultures of Uganda, getting a glimpse into the history of these interesting people.
Along the way we cross the Equator, stopping to take photographs and to have lunch. We arrive back in Kampala and Entebbe in time to catch evening flights, bringing this Gorilla Trekking & Uganda Wildlife Safari to a close.
