4 DAYS BWINDI GORILLAS AND NGAMBA ISLANDS: UGANDA SAFARI
These are 4 days of ultimate adventure in Uganda’s wildness. Chimpanzee viewing at Ngamba Island will be supplemented to a privilege of tracking the most humble but rare and endangered mountain Gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable forest, combined with nature walks, primates tracking and excellent birding. This is the only chance to penetrate the impenetrable Bwindi Forest in search for Gorillas and it’s a life time event.

You will then go for a walk in the surrounding communities. Dinner and overnight at Gorilla forest Camp / Buhoma community Bandas
Day 2-Tracking Gorillas, Having had breakfast you will transfer to the park headquarters for the briefing before you set off at 9:00 am through the tracks to search for the humble giants. You will go with packed lunch because it’s hard to determine how long it will take you to meet these great apes. However the time ranges between 2-9 hours depending on the movement of the giant primates. The activity is tiresome, it involves walking along steep hilly tracks however encountering these great relatives of man erases all the poor memories/ hardships you went through in trying to find them. They are awe-inspiring! Dinner and overnight at Gorilla forest Camp / Buhoma community Bandas.
Day 3- Transfer to Kampala, In the morning have breakfast to drive back to Kampala. You will have a stop in Mbarara to reach in the late afternoon. Dinner and overnight at Kampala Sheraton / Hotel Africana / Holiday express.
