Itinerary

Upon your arrival at the airport, you will be met and transferred to your hotel.
You will be met and collected from Entebbe and driven southwestwards to Lake Mburo National Park (the drive will be approximately 5-6 hours), the only park in the country with an entire lake from which it derives its name. In the afternoon enjoy a boat ride, viewing a diversity of animal and plant species: crocodiles, hippos, and birds including pelicans, Black Crake, and heron.
After an early morning game drive, we depart for Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park (the drive will be approximately 6-7 hours). The park derives its name from its thick vegetation with an immense variety of evergreen trees, festooned with lianas, and epiphytes, which reach great heights in their search for sunlight and is known to host half of the world’s population of mountain gorillas.
After an early breakfast, you will be taken to the Park Headquarters for a short briefing after which you will enter the forest and start your Gorilla trek (please note that a drive may be required to your trekking starting point).  Trekking can be anything from 2 hours to as long as 8 hours, if not longer depending on where the Gorillas are situated on the day.
After breakfast, we depart Bwindi and head back to Entebbe, arriving in the evening (this is a long drive of approximately 9-10 hours so we do recommend a flight from Kihihi to Entebbe at an additional cost).
