Detail Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival and Transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park (BINP)

Hopefully, your flight is scheduled for an early morning landing in Uganda. Your safari will start from Entebbe airport or Kigali, where you will be picked up by your professional Driver/Guide who will brief you about your tour and then depart for Bwindi Impenetrable national park. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is a big habitat for mountain gorillas in Uganda harboring over 300 of them, more reason as to why it should be your safari destination. The drive will take you southwest Uganda by road, cross the Equator then to Mbarara for Lunch and through Savannah grasslands to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. The scenic drive through Kigezi Highlands [commonly referred as “the Switzerland of Uganda”] and banana plantations take you to the gorilla Sanctuary of Bwindi NP. You will arrive in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and will mainly do little but just check in your accommodation, relax as you prepare for the Bwindi gorilla trekking experience the next day and Batwa Cultural trail.

Return to your lodge. Freshen up from the long tracking and thereafter check out for Batwa trail experience, enjoy cultural dances and the local touch which after you will proceed to Lake Bunyonyi. Lake Bunyonyi is framed by lush, green-terraced hills that reach a height of (2,200 – 2,478m) but it’s the 29 islands of various shapes and sizes scattered across the water that make it most magical — you could admire them all day.
