Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Rwanda.

Depart from your hotel in Kampala and head south-west to Rwanda. You will have short stop at the Equator an informative talk as well as a photographic opportunity. We will continue to Mbarara for lunch. Your drive will take you through Uganda rolling green hills through the highlands, also known as the ‘Switzerland of Uganda’. Your road will then head even higher to where you can see the triangular peaks of the Virunga volcanoes of Rwanda and the Cong.
Overnight at Gorilla Nest Lodge/Kinigi Guest House/Muhavura lodge (FB - Full Board).

Day 2: Gorilla Tracking.

Early morning, you will enter the Gorilla sanctuary of Parc National des Volcans, the rainy tropical forest covering the hills surrounding Virunga volcanoes. The trekking is a demanding but rewarding experience. Ensure you bring with you enough water and the packed lunch. The time spent in the forest depends on the movements of the Gorillas in their natural environments. After the activity, you will return back. Overnight at the Lodge

Day 3: Depart for Bwindi.

After breakfast, leave for Kisoro or Kabale depending on your tracking group. Stroll through the beautiful country side of Rwanda. Have lunch en route then arrive in the late afternoon. Dinner and over night at Gorilla Resort camp/Buhoma Homestead/L. Kitandara Camp/Buhoma Community Bandas/Nkuringo safari Lodge/Travel’s Hotel/Virunga Lodge.

Day 4: Gorilla Trekking.

Go gorilla tracking, walking up steep densely forested hills before finally coming across the gorillas camouflaged in the vegetation. An inspiring moment! (This trek can take from half an hour to 5 hours – a reasonable degree of fitness is required as well as a sturdy pair of walking shoes) Sit in the forest among the gorillas, listening to them grumble to each other, and marvel at the sheer size of the dominant male; the silver back. It is an extraordinary feeling sitting in the dense rainforest knowing you are with a few of the last remaining mountain gorillas.

It’s amazing to think there are only about 650 of these beautiful creatures left! If you have the energy this afternoon, take a guided walk on the Munyaga River trail, which is an ideal short walk. This trail leads to three delightful crystal clear waterfalls, and there is a profusion of tree ferns, epithetic ferns, orchids and Bwindi’s colourful array of butterflies. Here you may also see birds and primates from the forest edge. Overnight at your lodge

Day 5: Back to Kampala.

After breakfast, we will depart to Kampala arriving in the late evening.
