A five day safari ex Entebbe, visiting the Mountain Gorillas in Uganda (Bwindi). Top quality lodges / tented camps are used throughout, and transport is by customised vehicle with trained English speaking Driver / guide . All meals on safari are provided.

This safari is also available as a shorter option, ie 3 days if time is a problem – however you would have to charter on arrival to Bwindi, and exclude Ngamba island. There is time for at least two treks on below itinerary.

The following itinerary is quoted as a private itinerary.

Itinerary
DAY 1: LAKE VICTORIA & NGAMBA ISLAND CHIMPANZEE SANCTUARY
Arrive Entebbe, you will be met at the airport and transferred to the Lake Victoria Hotel. Bed & breakfast (dinner for own account).
This afternoon (depending on arrival time) you will be taken to Ngamba Island chimpanzee sanctuary where 33 orphaned chimps are being cared for.

DAY 2: BWINDI, GORILLA FOREST CAMP
Transfer to the airport for your charter flight to Bwindi – Kayonza airstrip. On arrival you will be met and transferred to the luxury tented camp Gorilla Forest Camp, located right next to the park itself on the edge of the forest. This beautiful camp has great views and is small and personal. Meals are a delight! The tents have ensuite facilities and are very roomy inside accommodating two very large beds.

Afternoon at leisure. Opportunity for a forest walk (may be arranged on arrival)
All meals included.

DAY 3: BWINDI IMPENETRABLE FOREST, GORILLA TREKKING
Today you will be up early for your gorilla trekking into the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, where your permits are held .

An early morning trek into the forest on the slopes of the volcanoes, led by experienced trackers will bring you amongst a family of Mountain Gorillas. These massive primates are extremely rare, only 600 remaining. You will get within metres of the family, and be privileged to spend time amongst them. Returning to the camp for a late lunch, we have an opportunity for forest walks with the guides, or just to relax. The trekking may be fairly strenuous; up to six hours is not uncommon – at relatively high altitude. Please refer to our information sheet.

DAY 4: GORILLA TREKKING
Option of a second trek at Bwindi. Overnight at the Gorilla Forest Camp, all meals included.

DAY 5: BWINDI TO ENTEBBE
