Service Language In:
This bucket-list experience takes you deep into Bwindi Impenetrable Forest for an eye-opening encounter with highly endangered mountain gorillas. After landing at the international airport in Entebbe, you will fly to the Kihihi airstrip on the outskirts of Bwindi National Park. Home to roughly 340 mountain gorillas, the park is one of the two remaining protected sites where this subspecies of great ape exists in the wild. Some of the family groups are habituated to human presence and will allow trekkers to track and observe them from a respectful and mandated distance as they go about their daily lives. Back at your accommodation, which is the tranquil Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp, keep an eye open for gorillas strolling right through the camp!
Part of this 5-day rainforest experience includes luxurious and authentic tented accommodation, as well as an encounter with the indigenous Batwa people. For those seeking to extend their East African journey, this fly-in gorilla safari is a great match with a trip to the Serengeti or the Masai Mara to see the Big 5 or Wildebeest Migration.

Itinerary (Day by Day)
Day 1: Land at Entebbe | 1 Night ENTEBBE, UGANDA
Your unforgettable journey begins at Entebbe International Airport where you will transfer to The Boma for an overnight stay. This modern hotel in Entebbe is an ideal spot to rest after a long-haul flight and to get yourself ready for your gorilla-trekking adventure.

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Days 2-4: Observe gorillas and meet an ancient people | 3 Nights BWINDI NATIONAL PARK, UGANDA
After a night at The Boma, you take a light aircraft for a scenic flight to the fringes of Bwindi National Park. At the landing strip in Kihihi, you will meet a representative from Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp. Drive through the fertile and lush Ugandan landscape past small farming communities and terraced hillsides en route to the camp, and allow your guide to introduce you to the local history, culture and way of life. Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp is unique because it is located on a private concession within Bwindi National Park, and gorillas can be seen walking right through the camp. Once you have arrived at the lodge, take some time to relax in preparation for an exciting day of trekking. After a restful night's sleep lulled by the sounds of the forest, you will rise early to set out on your expedition in search of the shy and gentle apes of the Bwindi Forest. Although you should prepare yourself for muddy, humid and perhaps challenging conditions, a day of trekking through the rainforest is possible for all reasonably fit and healthy travellers. Expert trackers and guides will lead you to one of the forest's habituated family groups of mountain gorillas and you will be able to spend a maximum of an hour observing the group as they feed, forage, play or interact. On returning to the camp, indulge in a well-deserved massage at the spa. The Batwa people have inhabited the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest for thousands of years and have not forgotten the old ways of life. As part of your stay, you are invited to witness a re-enactment of life as it was for the Batwa in the rainforest, and have the opportunity of interacting with these incredible people. The remainder of your time at Gorilla Forest Camp can be spent hiking, birding, visiting the local village or simply soaking up the sights and sounds of the forest from the lodge.

Day 5: Farewell to Bwindi
Bid adieu to the rainforest and the friendly staff at Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp before transferring back to the Kihihi airstrip for your return flight to the Entebbe International Airport. As you fly over the landscape, you have time to reflect on and appreciate your privileged time in the precious Ugandan rainforest.
