Itinerary for 3-Days Mountain Gorillas Tracking & Canoe Ride on Lake Bunyonyi

Day 1
To Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

On this day, you will wake up early & have your breakfast then transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park while enjoying a scenic drive that allows you to view the beautiful and varied country side. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is located in the southwestern part of Uganda on the rim of the Rift Valley. More notably, this “impenetrable forest” protects an predictable 320 population of mountain gorillas – approximately half of the population in the world, among which are a number of habituated groups, that can be tracked by visitors. Bwindi is habitat to more than half the world’s population of Mountain Gorillas.

You will arrive in the evening & check in at Buhoma Community Rest Camp for relaxation, dinner & overnight stay. Buhoma Community Rest Camp gives outdoor enthusiasts a taste of safari-style living and is an excellent base camp for gorilla trekking, as well as observing the many endemic bird species that inhabit the region.

Day 2
Mountain Gorillas Tracking in Bwindi & Canoe Ride on Lake Bunyonyi

After your breakfast, you will hike to the Park headquarters just meters from the Lodge for briefing by Uganda Wildlife Authority guides before transferring to the starting point for Mountain Gorillas tracking. Your tracking experience will be an exciting, yet challenging, journey along forested slopes, tangled vines, thick vegetation & bamboo forests before you reach the territory of these gentle giants. The visit will give you a glimpse into the life of a Mountain Gorilla family & if you are lucky enough to gaze into the eyes of a Mountain Gorilla. Visiting Mountain Gorillas will take you 3 hours to a full day trek through the forest since Mountain Gorillas move from one place to another every day looking for food & water.

After Mountain Gorillas tracking, you will go for a Canoe ride on Lake Bunyonyi, a scenic highland lake with 29 verdant islands that are good for guided excursions in dugout canoes (optional) before checking in to the lodge for relaxation, dinner & overnight stay.

Day 3
Departure

On this day, you will enjoy your last sunrise and breakfast in this beautiful corner of Uganda before your guide drive you across the beautiful sceneries back to Entebbe & drop you off at Entebbe International Airport 3 hours before your departure time. Please make sure your flight departure is after 5 pm at the very earliest. For flights departing before 5 pm you will need an extra night in Entebbe, which we can help arrange for you at an additional cost.
