This cheap 3 days gorilla safari highlights gorilla trekking in Bwindi and will let you spend over an hour close to the mountain gorillas in the forest. Gorilla trekking is so far one of the most exciting activities in Uganda and is mostly carried out in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park because it harbors the biggest percentage of such primates. See detailed itinerary below;
Day 1 – Transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
After an overnight stay in Entebbe, at around exactly 6:30 am in the morning we should be setting off as we drive southwest of Uganda to Bwindi Impenetrable National park, with short stopovers at the equator for photography and in Mbarara town for our lunch. From here we shall proceed to Kabale town, and then later on proceed with our final journey to Bwindi impenetrable national park. Dinner and overnight at Buhoma community bandas (Budget Accommodation).
Day 2 – Gorilla Tracking and Cultural Walk
The following morning you will have early morning breakfast and gather at a meeting point for pre-briefing and you get enlightened on the things you should do and things you shouldn’t do whilst you make your trek into the wild forests of Bwindi to track mountain gorillas. The activity can take between 2 – 7 hours depending on how long you intend to prolong the activity. You will also have an encounter with the primates for an hour before you make your return trek to your meeting point and return to your safari lodge. Later on in the evening, you will go for a cultural walk in the neighborhood and enjoy the amazing Batwa experience (Batwa Pygmies) that is filled with cultural dances, storytelling and more exciting cultural activities. Dinner and overnight at the same accommodation as day one.
Day 3 – Return to Kampala
We shall have early morning breakfast on the last day of our 3 days gorilla safari then make our final return journey to Kampala. We shall make several stopovers on the way and take amazing photographs of the beautiful scenery around the roads. We shall arrive in Kampala in the evening then make a free airport transfer for you and you proceed with your onward flight. If you wish to stay in Kampala for an extra night, you should let us know so that we book accommodation for you.
