Detailed Itinerary

You can proceed to check the detailed itinerary of the 3 Days Gorilla Tracking Bwindi Impenetrable National Park trip below.

Day 1 – Kampala to Bwindi

Gorilla Tracking Bwindi

On the first day we shall set off to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park right after having breakfast at the place you spent a night in. The departure time will be between 6:00 AM – 7:00 AM and the journey should take us approximately 9 hours. Whilst on the journey, we shall make a stop at the Uganda Equator in a place called Kayabwe. This is the line (world’s main latitude) that partitions the world into the southern and the northern hemisphere. We shall take photographs from there and have a lunch full of local cuisines as well before proceeding with our journey to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. We shall arrive in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in the evening and will mainly do less but just relax as we prepare for the Bwindi gorilla trekking experience the following day.

Day 2 – Gorilla Tracking

Day 2 is when we carry out Gorilla Tracking. Before we make our way to see the mountain gorilla in the forest, we shall first have to be briefed. Pre-briefing will commence at 7:30 AM, where you will be told about the precautions to take, given vital information and given a chance to ask anything you need to know about the Gorilla Tracking activity we are about to carry out. We shall set off not later than 8:30 AM accompanied by a couple of armed game rangers as we make our way into Bwindi Impenetrable Forest where mountain gorillas live for Gorilla Tracking. Gorilla Tracking is a physical activity that requires a certain level of fitness. You will be allocated in groups according to your paces. This activity takes roughly 2 – 8 hours depending on how long you intend to push on. However, you are expected to return to the starting point by 6:30 PM or latest 7:00 PM.

Day 3 – Bwindi to Kampala

Gorilla Tracking Bwindi

On Day 3 we shall have early morning breakfast at our place of stay before setting off for Kampala. The journey back is about 9 hours but we ensure you have some adventure whilst on your way back to Kampala. Our driver will drive through the highlands of Kigezi that are covered with the beauty of mist early in the morning then proceed through the beautiful Western Uganda landscapes with local banana / matooke plantations and farms of cattle in a district known as Ntungamo. We shall have our lunch in Mbarara District at a place called Igongo Cultural Center then proceed to the Equator, take more photographs and sip on some coffee before making our destination to Kampala. Upon reaching Kampala, you can either have an overnight in an arranged guest house or hotel or alternatively make your departure.
