The 2 days Gorilla tour to Bwindi is best suited for travelers with less time in Uganda but would love to watch the mountain Gorillas before they leave Uganda. The 2 days gorilla tour starts from Entebbe Uganda and ends in Kigali as you depart.
Day 1: Arrival and transfer to Bwindi National Park
You will be picked at the airport on arrival (if you arrive in the morning) or from your hotel and set off for a long drive through the western countryside of Uganda and drive towards Bwindi forest. You will have a stopover at the Equator for a short picture moment and souvenirs and proceed to Igongo cultural center for lunch. You will also have a simple exposure to the Ankole culture with traditional performances from one of the cultural groups in this place. After this wonderful experience and lunch, you will drive off proceeding to Bwindi through Kabale town arriving in the evening at the lodge. Dinner and overnight at Bakiga Lodge.
Day 2: Gorilla tracking
This day starts with a drive to the park headquarters early in the morning to catch up with briefing at the offices. You will then be led into the forest in a group of 8 people to search for the habituated mountain Gorillas. The exercise is quite tiresome and requires a level of fitness. After a long walk into the forest, you will meet these gentle giants as they go about their daily lives as guided by the silverback. You will then be allowed to spend one hour watching them as you take beautiful pics and learn more about them from the information shared by these knowledgeable guides. You will then be led back after this wild experience with the Gorillas to meet your driver to have lunch and head to Kigali International airport.
