Day 2
Entebbe to Bwindi
After an early breakfast, you'll drive to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. The full-day drive offers some beautiful and fascinating sights along the way, as you pass through small villages and fertile countryside, where you'll see farmers tending their crops of millet, sorghum, beans and maize. At Kyanjojo, in the foothills of the Rwenzori Mountains (Mountains of the Moon), you'll drive through a sea of green tea plantations. On arrival at Bwindi you'll check in and have a chance to freshen up before dinner.

Day 3
Bwindi
After breakfast this morning, you'll be driven to the headquarters of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest to begin your gorilla-trekking experience. The experienced guides will lead you to the site where they encountered the gorillas the day before, and from here you'll begin tracking. The gorillas move around from day to day in search of food, so the length of your hike today will depend on how far they've travelled, although you can generally expect it to take between one and six hours. It can be tough going, but the surroundings are truly spectacular, and you'll soon forget your tiredness when you encounter a wild gorilla family in its natural habitat – considered by many to be the ultimate natural history experience. You will return to your camp in the late afternoon, with time to relax before dinner.

If you love to see animals up close and in their natural surroundings, this four day African adventure to interact with the famous Ugandan gorillas is a must. The Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is a biodiverse, mountainous area in the southwest of the country and is home to many of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas, who feed on roots, leaves and fruits. Restricted numbers of viewing permits help protect these endangered species and as you walk along the rough paths amid dense forests, you will also see lots of exotic butterflies and birds.
