The 3-Day Uganda Gorilla Trekking Tour is a magical journey into the isolated jungles of East Africa where you should expect an experience like no other. (INTERESTED IN UGANDA GORILLA PERMITS AT $400?). Being close to a family of wild mountain gorillas in the deep misty jungle of Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park is utterly magical; nothing can ever prepare you for such an experience – their sheer beauty, brawn, and soulful brown eyes, their astonishingly human-like expressions or their extraordinarily gentle demeanor. One hour with these gentle creatures – 60 minutes, is all it takes to change your whole life’s experience.
DAY 1: Transfer To Bwindi For the 3-Day Uganda Gorilla Trekking Tour
Depart Entebbe/ Kampala for your first day of the 3-Day Uganda Gorilla Trekking Tour. The drive time from Entebbe/Kampala to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park located in Southwestern Uganda is between 8-9 hours. Although it may seem quite a long drive, it is worth it because you get to enjoy the countryside scenery with some of the most beautiful landscapes ranging from plantations, and hills, all the way to the Virunga massive. Just keep your cameras near you and your driver will definitely stop if you need him to, so that you can capture that beautiful moment.
DAY 2: Gorilla Tracking in Bwindi National Park
After your early morning breakfast, your guide will drive you to Ruhija Park Headquarters for briefing and join others for briefing before heading into the forest for your gorilla trek. This trek can last for between 30 minutes to 7 hours depending on the location of the mountain gorilla family on that particular day. Once you find the gorillas, you will be allowed to spend one hour with them while observing their behavior, taking photographs before you return to the Park Headquarters for your certificate that confirms that you have tracked gorillas in Uganda. Overnight stay at Rushaga Gorilla Havens Lodge or Trekkers Tervan Lodge.
DAY 3: Return To Kampala or Entebbe Airport
After your breakfast, you will be driven back to Kampala or Entebbe for your post-tour accommodation or you may choose to fly out of Uganda on the last day of your tour. Since you will use the same route back, you will have another stop at the Equator crossing for photo moments, buying souvenirs or to just relax before continuing to Kampala/Entebbe.
