Meal Plan:  Lunch – Dinner

Day Two – Gorilla Trek :

Have an early breakfast, take your packed lunch and be at Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park Headquarters for the Mountain Gorilla Tracking (Trekking) orientation and meeting with guides and separation into groups dependi ng on which group you will be tracking.

Things needed for Gorilla Trek:  Light hiking boots, light rain-jacket, daypack, 2 liters of water, some like to have gardening gloves  to pull themselves up on vines and branches, long-trousers such as jeans, long-sleeved shirt to protect skin from getting scratched, hat – wide brimmed is best, sunglasses, insect repellent mostly against flies. A porter’s services are provided as are the walking sticks that you will need for support.

The flora and fauna, the other primates, mammals, birds, butterflies will be most beautiful and only enhance this very special day.

The tracking (trekking) can involve some rigorous climbing and hiking but then you are face to face with these powerful yet gentle Mountain Gorillas, observing them just a few meters from you watching the group, mothers with a baby, the gorillas doing their daily routine and you are there.  You will not find the mountain gorillas in any zoo, but only in this small section of Africa where the remaining mountain gorillas are found.


 Day Three – 2nd Gorilla Trek:

Breakfast and you are off for your second Gorilla Trek with a different gorilla family group giving you two different experiences.

Even if you were tracking the same group as the day before it would be a different experience since gorillas move daily and build new nests on a different site.  You will need the same kind of clothing as on the previous day and once again Porter Services are provided to carry your Daypack.

A Gorilla Trek can be from 2 hours to five hours plus but once again is a most awe-inspiring experience for you and it becomes even more special if you can share that experience with someone such as a spouse, friend or friends.

Dinner at the lodge

Day Four-Fly back to Entebbe: 

It is Breakfast Time-  in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.  You can choose the morning or afternoon Flight back to Entebbe.  If it is the afternoon flight we can arrange an activity for you.

Fly back to Entebbe – where you are met by driver-guide and taken to hotel or arrangements for your flight out are taken care of.

Hopefully, you have enjoyed your twice gorilla tracking safari in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.

 Our Take:

This 4-day Safari can easily be extended to 5 with a through Bwindi Forest trekking Gorillas on both ends of the park.  The Hike Can be continued to Lake Mutanda from Nkuringo and a dugout canoe ride across the lake which is unique in itself.

The other option is Tracking Gorillas in both Bwindi Forest and Mgahinga Gorilla Park, there you can add Volcano Climbing, Golden Monkey Trekking and time with the Batwa People who were the first people of the forest.

Such a safari must be booked ahead well in advance due to very limited permits in Mgahinga Gorilla Park where Gorilla Trekking is like in Rwanda on the sides of Volcanoes.

4 Day Fly-In Twice Gorilla Trekking Luxury Safari includes Flight, lodging, gorilla permits, porter’s services in carrying your daypack and things, transportation, porter services, bottled water for the trek. It does not include, laundry, trips, alcohol, sodas, though in some lodges they are included in the price.  Tips are not included.
