On your arrival into Entebbe you will be met and transferred to your hotel. You will have the opportunity to explore the small, quiet town of Entebbe; soak up the atmosphere of the local markets filled with clothes and crafts, shop for souvenirs in curio shops, explore the Botanical Gardens on Lake Victoria, or enjoy the wide variety of cuisines on offer.

DAY 2

ENTEBBE – QUEEN ELIZABETH NATIONAL PARK

This morning you will be transferred to Entebbe Airport for your flight to Queen Elizabeth National Park, home to a wide variety of wildlife including elephants, leopard, lions, hippos, buffalo, Uganda kob, baboon, and many species of birds.

Overnight: Ishasha Wilderness Camp(B, L, D)

DAY 4

QUEEN ELIZABETH NATIONAL PARK – BWINDI IMPENETRABLE NATIONAL PARK

A three hour drive through scenic country will bring you to Bwindi Forest National Park, considered the most diverse forest in Uganda. Home to over 120 mammal species, 345 species of birds, 200 species of butterflies and 160 species of trees, Bwindi is one of the richest ecosystems in East Africa, and also contains almost half of the world’s population of the endangered Mountain Gorilla. Upon arrival, relax at your lodge and prepare for your first gorilla tracking experience in the morning.

DAY 5

BWINDI GORILLA TRACKING

Coming face to face with mountain gorillas is a real once-in-a-lifetime experience! You will be accompanied by experienced guides and trackers on an early morning trek into the dense rain forest on the mountain slopes. The mountain gorillas in Bwindi are part of a worldwide population of just 700. The gorillas you are allowed to track belong to one of three habituated family groups. For up to five years each, these groups have undergone an extremely delicate process that has gradually brought them to tolerate the presence of humans for a brief period every day and allowed a few privileged visitors to interact with them in the wild. Please note that gorilla tracking may be fairly strenuous, with treks ranging from 30 mins to six hours or longer.

DAY 6

BWINDI – VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK

From Bwindi, you will set off on a drive through the ‘Little Switzerland of Africa’ along winding mountain roads and through rural villages to reach the border of Rwanda, Kisoro. On a clear day the Virungas, a row of massive, dormant volcanoes, can be seen standing sentry along the border. Cross over the border and continue on to your next base for gorilla tracking.

DAY 7

VOLCANOES GORILLA TRACKING

Today will be spent tracking the world famous mountain gorillas of Rwanda. The gorillas you will track belong to one of ten habituated family groups. After an early breakfast, you will head to the park where you will be allocated your gorilla family, before setting off on your gorilla tracking adventure. You will be accompanied by experienced guides, many of whom have been involved in the habituation process themselves, who will use their knowledge of the gorillas’ habits to determine the group’s whereabouts.

DAY 8

VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK – KIGALI

After lunch, you will set off on the three hour drive to Kigali, the capital city of Rwanda. Here, you have the option of paying a visit to the Genocide Museum, before heading to the airport for your flight home.
