Queen Elizabeth to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

You will be transferred by road through the Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park on the way to Bwindi, this area is known for its tree-climbing lions. In Ishasha we will drive off in this adventurous vast savannah to hopefully get the Lions high in the fig tree branches. Then continue with the safari to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is a big habitat for mountain gorillas in Uganda; harboring an estimated 400 mountain gorillas – roughly half of the world’s population, including several habituated groups, which can be tracked. Its mist-covered hillsides are blanketed by one of Uganda’s oldest and most biologically diverse rain-forests, which dates back over 25,000 years and contains almost 400 species of plants. With a strenuous day ahead, you will check into your accommodation, relax as you prepare for the Bwindi gorilla trekking experience the following day. Dinner and overnight accommodation.

Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi Forest

After an early morning breakfast you will be driven to the park headquarters for briefing on the do’s and don’ts during gorilla tracking and thereafter you will proceed to the gorilla trail. Gorilla tracking normally lasts between 1 to 8 hours or even a day to encounter the gorillas. However, you will be allowed to stay in the presence of these awesome apes for at least an hour. It is advisable that you carry packed lunch, which will be provided, as one cannot determine how long it may take to encounter the mountain gorillas. If time and energy allow, you may take the Batwa Cultural visit after the gorilla tracking or just have a relaxed afternoon. Enjoy your evening, dinner and overnight.

Bwindi to Bunyonyi back to Kampala City

After breakfast, you will be transferred by road to Lake Bunyonyi for a Boat ride. This lake is said to be one of the most beautiful places in western Uganda. It is the second deepest lake in Africa (900 meters deep) and also one of the few places in the country where it is considered safe to swim as it is bilharzia free, this takes 2 hours. The landscape around the lake is made up of terraced hills protruding from the water’s edge. Bunyonyi means “place of little birds” and as the name suggests, there is plenty of birdlife around the lake. After the Boat ride you will be transferred by road back to Kampala with lunch en-route. Upon arrival in the evening you will be transferred to your hotel or airport to catch your flight back home.
