Day 1 – Entebbe, The Boma Guest House OR Kampala Hotel Le Petit Village / Cassia Lodge:

After arriving at Entebbe International Airport, Uganda, the comfortable little family run guesthouse is only a few minutes drive away. Here you can relax by the pool while acclimatizing to the tropics after your long flight. Alternatively, a visit to the Botanical gardens or Lake Victoria, are also possible. Alternatively, your first night may be spent in a lovely hotel in Kampala city, which gives you the opportunity to dive into the day-to-day life of the country’s capital city.

Day 2 – Mihingo Lodge, Lake Mburo National Park:

An early start sees you off to Lake Mburo National Park. The park lies in southern Uganda and apart from an incredible array of birdlife, is teeming with Impala and Uganda’s largest zebra population.

The breathtaking Mihingo Lodge is the ideal stopover, so enjoy a sundowner overlooking the waterhole which attracts everything from buffalo, warthogs and impala to zebra, bushbuck and even the majestic eland. After nightfall use the opportunity to see the resident family of bush babies (Thick Tailed Galagos) interact with each other.

Day 3 - Bwindi Impenetrable Forest:

This journey will take you from open savannah, climbing into the hills, through the occasional Ugandan village. Then you will descend into a completely different world of steep V-shaped valleys, covered with untouched primary rain forest as far as the eye can see. A world apart from the savannah of Lake Mburo National Park. You’ll need a rain coat and warm clothes as there are frequent tropical downpours. Accommodation depends on where the group of gorillas you are scheduled to track are located.

Day 4 – Bwindi Impenetrable Forest:

As you wake early to the exotic sounds of the forest it’s hard not to feel full of excitement for the adventure ahead. Trekking Gorillas in the mist can take anything from 1 and half hours to 8 hours! Chances of seeing the gorillas are very high as each group is closely monitored and the ranger guides accompanying you do everything they can to help you find these magnificent primates. Your experienced guides have an incredible wealth of knowledge with regards to the flora and fauna of the rain forest.

Day 5 – Lake Bunyonyi, BirdNest

Relaxing on the shores of Lake Bunyonyi after the drive from Bwindi is the best way to overcome any soreness in your legs after tracking the gorillas. Your lodge is overlooks a stunning stretch of Africa’s second deepest lake.
