Itinerary

Day 1 – Entebbe to Lake Mburo National Park

You will be met and collected from Entebbe and driven south westwards to Lake Mburo National Park (the drive will be approximately 5-6 hours), the only park in the country with an entire lake from which it derives its name. In the afternoon enjoy a boat ride, viewing a diversity of animal and plant species: crocodiles, hippos and birds including pelicans, Black Crake and heron.

Accommodation Facilities: Room with En-Suite Bathroom

Meals: Dinner

Approx. distance: 210 km

Approx. driving time: 4-5 hours (including game drive speed)

Day 2 – Lake Mburo, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park

After an early morning game drive we depart for Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park (the drive will be approximately 6-7 hours). The park derives its name from its thick vegetation with an immense variety of evergreen trees, festooned with lianas, epiphytes, which reach great heights in their search for sunlight and is known to host half of the world’s population of mountain gorillas.

Approx. distance: 280 km

Approx. driving time: 4-5 hours (including game drive speed)

Day 3 – Gorillas

After an early breakfast, you will be taken to the Park Headquarters for a short briefing after which you will enter the forest and start your Gorilla trek (please note that a drive may be required to your trekking starting point).  Trekking can be anything from 2 hours to as long as 8 hours, if not longer depending on where the Gorillas are situated on the day.

Day 4 – Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park to Entebbe

Please keep in mind that the time it takes to travel 100 km in your home country is not equivalent to the time it takes to travel 100 km on African roads, therefore we encourage you to sit back and enjoy the spectacular scenery Africa has to offer. Where possible additional stops will be made to ensure your travelling comfort at all times.

For this accommodated safari, we make use of mid-range lodge accommodation. Your accommodation is situated either in National Parks, on the banks of a river, or in other places of interest. The accommodation will be a mix of lodges, chalets and permanent tented chalets with en-suite facilities. Some properties are equipped with swimming pools and/or bar areas.

Breakfast and dinner will be prepared by the lodge where you are staying. They will also prepare lunch or a lunch pack depending on the itinerary for the day. Please advise us of any special dietary requirements in advance.

The onus is on the client to organise all visas required to visit Uganda, prior to departure.
