Day 1: Meet our staff at your accommodation in Kampala or Entebbe at 07:30. Set off southwest to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. En-route, stop at the Equator a chance to be in both hemispheres at the same time. Take part in the water experiment and get to know changes in your body weight at the equator. Continue to Mbarara arriving at the Agip Motel in time for lunch. (One hour lunch break). Drive through terraced hills to the rising Kigezi hills while descending to Bwindi, a typical tropical rain forest with dense undergrowth and home to the Mountain Gorillas. 9 hour drive.

Day 2: After an early morning briefing by the ranger guide, go gorilla tracking (subject to permit availability at the time of booking). Tracking the gorillas through the impenetrable forest requires patience and endurance, sometimes walking for many hours in the mud and rain. The time taken and the terrain vary with the Gorilla movements. Coming face to face with man’s shy cousins in the jungle is an inspiring moment. Carry packed lunch.
