Tour Itinerary

You've been in search of the Big Five, now what about the Big Six? On this trip we get up-close-and-personal, trekking deep into the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Reserve to meet the elusive East African Gorilla. Majestic, mountain-dwelling and pretty darn massive, these magnificent creatures are worth every second of the journey through the Kigezi mountains to find them. With an expert team of gorilla trackers and local guides, a special permit to spend up to an hour with a gorilla family, and an extra game drive at Lake Mburo for wildlife spotting, prepare yourself for the most unforgettable wildlife encounter and once-in-a-lifetime gorilla experience.

Day 1 - Entebbe International Airport to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Reserve
Upon arrival at Entebbe airport, you'll be met by a rep who will introduce your safari driver guide. After a safari briefing, we'll drive to the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.After an early breakfast, we'll drive to the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. This is a full day drive from the Lake Victoria basin, passing through Ugandan villages and beautiful agricultural countryside where you see people tending their traditional crops of millet, sorghum, beans and maize. Lunch will be taken en route at Mbarara, before we proceed through the Kigezi mountains to the Buhoma area of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. We'll check in here at our Lodge, drop off our bag and settle down for dinner before bed.

Day 2 - Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Reserve
We'll start early to make the most of our Gorilla-spotting opportunities today. After breakfast at the lodge, we'll drive to the nearby park offices to attend a briefing by the Tourism Conservation and the gorilla guides. You will be briefed on how to behave in the forest while in the presence of a gorilla family. Once the gorilla group is found, you will be allowed an hour to stay with the gorillas before breaking off for lunch in the forest. Later, we'll walk back to our waiting vehicle and return to the park offices to receive a gorilla trekking Certificate. Mission complete! You'll be dropped at the lodge to freshen up after our adventures. Time permitting, you may have the chance tonight to sign up for a community village visit or a Batwa Cultural experience. Note: If permits are not available in the Buhoma sector of the Bwindi Forest, then an extra cost will be added if available in the Ruhija sector at the time of booking.

Day 3 - Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Reserve to Lake Mburo
After breakfast, we'll take a morning drive through terraced evergreen mountains, referred to as the 'Little Switzerland of Africa'. We press on to Mantana Lake Tented Camp for lunch, before a late afternoon game drive for some spotting of zebra, impala, topi, Cape buffalo and other plains game to add to your growing wildlife list. We return to the Camp before dusk for dinner and overnight.

Day 4 - Lake Mburo to Entebbe International Airport
Rise and shine for a final morning game drive followed by breakfast at the camp. After breakfast you'll get driven back to Entebbe and dropped at the airport for your onward flight. It's goodbye for now, but you'll leave with plenty of photos and memories to revisit this adventure for a long time to come.

Please Note: This tour is only applicable for 18 to 35 year olds.
