SAFARI ITINERARY / PROGRAM

Day 1: Transfer to Bwindi
Meet and greet at your hotel at 7:00a.m. after a short briefing transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. You will remember that it was at Entebbe where the Israelis heroically released hostages that was on a hijacked Air France Airbus in 1976.

After, we drive heading to southwestern Uganda. En route, there is a local community popular for making local drums and crafts and a fruit market. Stopover, admire and buy yourself souvenirs. Proceed to the Equator line taken as one beautiful scenery in Africa – the pathway of the sun and take photographs. You may be amazed by the local Hima pastoralists grazing the famous Ankole long – horned cattle. Take pictures and proceed.

The Bwindi area is a highly fertile, mountainous region with steep sided hills covered from top to bottom in neatly terraced rows of cultivation. You are really driving through the “Banana Republic” with banana plantations all around you, steep hills, small rivers……just amazing scenery. Arrive late afternoon at the park and check-in at your accommodation.

Estimated transfer time to Bwindi is 10 hours by 4 wheel drive vehicle. Overnight and dinner at Bwindi view camp.

Day 2: Gorilla Tracking
After breakfast, proceed for the morning briefing before enjoying the highlight of the trip- Gorilla trekking which may last the entire day. We trek through the rainforest and bamboo covered slopes, accompanied by a guide and trackers, in search of a mountain gorilla family. The walking can sometimes be tough and long, but when you catch a glimpse of the magnificent silverback, any discomforts will be totally forgotten.

These gentle giants are highly endangered and anyone suffering even the slightest of ailments including a cough will not be allowed to go this trek. When sighted, visitors will be guided to within 6 metres from the gorillas, sit around them for a whole hour while gazing into their big round eyes. These giants are so powerful and can sometimes weigh up to 250 kilos. Pictures with non flash zoom lens can be taken.

Overnight and dinner at Bwindi view camp.
