Trip highlight: Stop at the Equator, Gorilla Trekking, and Guided walk to the River Munyaga/Buhoma village walk.
Day 1: Kampala – Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.
Depart from Kampala at 8:00 am and head towards western Uganda. A brief stop at the Equator allows time for photographs. The journey affords images from the vehicle of the long horned Ankole cattle, the rolling hills and terraced landscapes of the region, and beautiful panoramas that are part of Kabale District which is known as the "Switzerland of Uganda". We will have a lunch break en route at Lake View Regency Hotel Mbarara. Drive direct to the park and arrive late evening. Overnight at Gorilla Forest camp/Buhoma homestead/Buhoma Community Rest Camp. Meal plan H/B.
Day 2: Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.
After an early breakfast and guides briefing, set off for your Gorilla tracking activity in the forests of Bwindi. Gorilla tracking can be strenuous, you will need to carry a packed lunch, drinking water, wear comfortable boots and take a rain jacket. Walking sticks will be made available for those that require one by the park rangers.
Should you have the energy this afternoon, you will take a guided walk on the Munyaga River trail, which is an ideal short trail. This walk will lead you to three delightful crystal clear waterfalls, a profusion of tree ferns, epiphytic ferns, orchids and Bwindi’s colorful array of butterflies. Here you may also see birds and primates from the forest edge.
Or if you have the afternoon free, you may take a guided village walk to see how Ugandans live, visit a local bar and meet the local medicine man. (Optional activity). Overnight at Gorilla Forest camp/Buhoma homestead/Buhoma Community Rest Camp. Meal plan F/B.
Day 3: Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park - Kampala. An early breakfast, before the drive back to Kampala. You will stop for lunch at the Rwizi Arch in Mbarara and continue to Kampala. Arriving Kampala in the late evening.
