This itinerary is created in a way that brings more and more excitement for wildlife lovers every day. Next stop is, therefore, Queen Elizabeth National Park, where two game drives will hopefully bring you in sight of four of the Big Five along with thousands of hippos and over 600 species of birds. Then, last but not least, the fauna finale of this holiday is the gorilla safari and trekking expedition that takes place in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, home to over half of the earth’s 800 or so mountain gorillas. Travelling in a small group means that we are able to organise the much sought after gorillas safari permits in advance, staying in a nearby mountain lodge that is at the heart of the small rural community here.

Day 3: Gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park:

Stop At: Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Buhoma Kanungu and Kisoro, Kabale Uganda
The Gorilla Trekking & Wildlife Safari day that will imprint a memory of your lifetime. After breakfast, proceed for the morning briefing before enjoying the highlight of the trip- Gorilla trekking, which may last the entire day. We trek through the rain forest and bamboo covered slopes, accompanied by a guide and trackers, in search of a mountain gorilla family. The walking can sometimes be tough and long, but when you catch a glimpse of the magnificent silverback, any discomforts will be quickly forgotten. When sighted, visitors will be guided to within 6 metres from the gorillas, sit around them for a whole hour while gazing into their big round eyes.

Gorilla trekking is unpredictable. It’s difficult to foresee how many hours you will hike. The gorilla excursion can take from 2 up to 8 hours. Expect to walk along distance in steep and muddy conditions, sometimes with rain overhead, before you encounter any gorillas. A good physical condition before you book the Gorilla Trekking & Wildlife Safari is recommended. For conservation purposes, time spent with the gorillas is limited to one hour. A ranger will brief you on how to behave with the gorillas.

While most of today’s forests are no more than 12,000 years old, Bwindi’s vegetation has been weaving itself into tangles over at least 25,000 years, in the process accumulating a lengthy species list. This includes 310 species of butterfly, 51 reptiles, 200 trees, 88 moths and an exceptional 120 types of mammal including 10 primates. The latter includes chimpanzee, L’Hoest’s, red tailed and blue monkey, black and white colobus, baboon, and Bwindi’s most famous resident, the mountain gorilla.

Apart from gorilla trekking, Bwindi is a prime destination for birdwatchers. Its 350 species include seven which are IUCN red data listed and 90% of all Albertine rift endemics, species which are difficult or impossible to see in any other part of East Africa.

As we enter the park, we do a game drive in search of the wild game. We continue and drive to the northern circuit which is the area near the main road known for its tree climbing lions.
