Day 1: Leave Kampala in the morning and drive south. A first stop over at the Equator, a famous spot for photography. For the rest of the journey, view the long horned Ankole cattle, papyrus, acacia woodland, and terraced landscape of kigezi highlands on your way to Bwindi Impenetrable forest national park. Lunch en route. Dinner/overnight at Buhoma homestead in self contained Banda or Mantana tented camp or Volcanoes or Gorilla Rest Camp.
Day 2: After an early breakfast and briefing from the guides, we set off for the gorilla tracking in the forest sanctuary. The activity starts at 8.00am. You need to carry packed lunch, drinking water, rain jacket and jungle boots while the rangers will provide you with a walking stick. The time taken to find the gorillas varies according to the movements of these marvelous primates. An encounter with an earth shaking 350 pound silver back or a baby gorilla is very exciting and never forgotten! Dinner and overnight at Buhoma homestead or Mantana tented camp or Volcanoes or Gorilla Rest Camp.
Day 3: After breakfast, return to Kampala at leisure. Lunch en route.
