4 days Bwindi Impenetrable Forest 2
From per person
Uganda is a land of contrast, dappled with wildlife, serene undulating hills of tea plantations, lush but orderly, give way to tangled jungle and rainforest with the musical accompaniment of chaotic, cacophonous birdlife. Uganda is alive with these contrasts: yet silent elephants, disappearing like a vapour behind the trees, the chimpanzees crashing about the forest canopy, the lugubrious gorilla, chewing thoughtfully in the bamboo thickets. Let us show you Uganda with all its contrast and wildness.
BWINDI IMPENETRABLE FOREST
A magnificent verdant swathe across the steep ridges of the Albertine rift valley, this ancient 331sq km rainforest, one of the few in Africa to have flourished throughout the last Ice Age is home to roughly half of the world’s mountain Gorillas. Looking deep into the expressive brown eyes of these giants is surely the most exciting and poignant wildlife encounter that Africa has to offer, but we should not let it distract from Bwindi’s broader bio-diversity, a result of its immense antiquity and an altitude span from 1,160m to 2,607m. The national park has 90 mammal species including 11 primates, such as the black and white Colobus, common chimpanzees, L’Hoest’s Monkey, red tailed Monkeys and the well known vervet Monkey but also the elusive giant forest Hog. The park has more than 350 bird species and more than 200 butterfly species.
DAY 01: KAMPALA – BWINDI.
Early morning drive from Entebbe International Airport to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Dinner and overnight at Buhoma rest camp
DAY 02: GORILLA TREKKING
Early morning your guides will brief you before you head into the dense forest on your search of the gorillas and an intimate interaction with these gentle and endangered animals. The forest also affords viewing of other primates including blue monkeys, L'oehst monkeys, red tailed monkeys and chimpanzee, along with a variety of bird life. The time spent trekking in this unspoiled tropical forest and watching the gorillas is certainly worth the effort. In the evening relax back at Buhoma rest camp

Early morning drive from Bwindi to Kampala.
