Arrive early in Entebbe, be picked up, and depart for Bwindi National Park.
We hope that your flight will arrive in Uganda before 10:00 a.m. Your safari will begin at Entebbe International Airport, where you will be met by your assigned Professional Tour Driver-guide before departing for Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Bwindi is a large mountain gorilla habitat in Uganda, home to over 300 of them (nearly half of the world's gorilla population).
The road trip will take you southwest Uganda, across the Equator, to Mbarara City for lunch, and then through the hilly terrain of western Uganda to Bwindi. You will arrive and do nothing but check into your accommodation and relax.

Gorilla trekking in Bwindi Forest, followed by a relaxing trip to Lake Bunyonyi.
After breakfast, proceed to the rangers' post. During the trek, you will be briefed (by a ranger-guide) on the dos and don'ts. Following that, you will enter the Bwindi Forest to begin your adventure. This rain forest is breathtakingly beautiful! The area has a dramatic steeply forested landscape and is extremely dense, but it is crisscrossed by numerous animal trails that allow tourists access. The time and terrain vary according to the movements of these great primates. You will be allowed an hour in the presence of a gorilla group once you have located one. Spending time observing these gentle but endangered giants is an unforgettable experience. Return to your lodging, check out, and transfer to Bunyonyi Lake Lake Bunyonyi is surrounded by lush, green-terraced hills that rise to a height of (2,200 - 2,478m), but it's the 29 islands of varying shapes and sizes scattered across the water that make it most magical — you could spend all day admiring them.
