Our Gorilla Safari Tours in Uganda offer an unrivalled experience. Come and explore beautiful Uganda with us!
Gorilla Trekking Tours in Uganda is a significant part of our big project and mission – responsible tourism because we do care about the local community and all their needs.
This incredible tour will give you a chance to experience Uganda’s breathtaking and almost intact wildlife. Uganda is a home of one of the most fertile and luxurious rainforests where you can see a wide range of primates, birds, insects and many other exotic animals. Prepare to be amazed by Bwindi rainforest and its even more fantastic gorilla population.
Ramble through Queen Elizabeth National Park, and admire its rich wildlife. Explore the impressive Kibale National Park with us, a home to more than 500 chimpanzees.
To rest your legs from adventurous trekking, we’ll take you to a boat trip on the Kazinga Channel to encounter the buffalos, hippos and many other animals. It’s hard to number all the animals you can meet in Uganda. It’s merely something you have to experience personally.
Our Gorilla Trekking Tours in Uganda are remarkable not only because they offer you the rare opportunity to discover endangered species. This tour provides a broader perspective since you’ll also meet local people, learn about their everyday life and face the sad truth that every day of their life is a bare survival.
Day 1 (-/-D)
Our 3 Day Gorilla Trekking Adventure in Uganda starts with picking you up from your pre-tour hotel (extra cost) in Kampala at 7:30 am or a the airport.
Leaving Kampala we drive the 283km’s to Mbarara, travelling via Masaka. We pause at the Equator to take photographs of the crossing, stretch our legs and enjoy some snacks. Then we continue to Igongo Cultural village where we visit the Ankole Museum. At Igongo we learn about the Bahima and Ankole cultures of Uganda, getting a glimpse into the history of these interesting people. Stop for lunch along the way and then head to Bwindi Forest. The dense rainforest of Bwindi, famous for its gorilla population, is one of the most fertile and rich in the world, is home to a variety of primates, animals, insects and exotic birds.
Dinner and overnight at lodge.
Overnight at Gorilla Safari Lodge or Gorilla Mist Camp
Day two starts with an early morning breakfast and a trekking brief from the Uganda Wildlife Authority guide, before embarking on the once-in-a-lifetime experience of trekking mountain gorillas in the wild. We head off into the lush vegetation of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest for endangered gorilla trekking, the highlight of visiting Uganda, if not Africa. This gorilla walk can take up to six hours, so a reasonable degree of fitness and a sturdy pair of walking shoes are required. This rewarding trek through the jungle takes us in search of a group of gorillas. Once we find the African Mountain Gorillas we spend some time watching them feed and interact with each other. We get to hear the gorillas communicating with one another and marvel at the sheer size of the dominant adult male gorillas, called Silverbacks.
In the afternoon (optional trip) we can explore a local community on foot, to gain insight into the ways of the Ugandan people living near Bwindi Park. After our village walk, we return to the camp and have a drink together, recounting our unforgettable adventures with the African Mountain Gorillas.
Dinner and overnight stay at the lodge.
Day 3 (B/L/-)
After breakfast we leave the lodge, returning to Kampala along the Kasese-Fort Portal road. We travel via the Queen Elizabeth National Park game viewing en route. Wildlife sightings include elephants, lions, buffalo, waterbucks, warthogs and various birds. Our scenic drive takes us through the foothills of Mount Rwenzori towards Fort Portal, where we stop for lunch. From Fort Portal, we continue to Kampala or Entebbe bringing this 3 Day Gorilla Trekking Adventure in Uganda to a close.
