Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Welcome to the Pearl of Africa – Airport Pickup – Shoebill Tracking (Optional)

Welcome to Uganda, known as the Pearl of Africa. Upon your arrival at the airport, your tour guide will be waiting to greet you and escort you to your hotel in Entebbe. Here, you'll have the opportunity to settle in and meet with your guide for a briefing on the itinerary.

For those who arrive early and wish to explore, there are optional activities available in Entebbe. Bird enthusiasts can venture to the renowned botanical gardens or Mabamba swamps to catch a glimpse of the prehistoric shoebill. Alternatively, you can take a stroll through the local markets or explore the modern malls for shopping opportunities.

Main Destination Entebbe
Accommodation Options • 2Friends Beach Hotel (Mid Range)
• Hotel No 5 (Luxury)
Meals • All meals included
• Drinking water (Other drinks not included)

About Entebbe:

Nestled along the shores of Lake Victoria, Entebbe is a charming town that offers easy exploration on foot or via local boda bodas (motorbike taxis). You can spend your time perusing the markets for souvenirs and crafts, strolling through the Botanical Gardens, or enjoying a leisurely boat cruise on Lake Victoria. Additionally, there's a diverse array of restaurants, bars, and clubs where you can savour local beer, catch a football game, and mingle with the welcoming locals.

Day 2: Drive from Entebbe to Rushaga – Bwindi

After breakfast, your tour guide will pick you up from your hotel, and you'll embark on a journey to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. The drive from Entebbe to Rushaga takes approximately 8 hours on well-maintained roads. The final stretch, on a dirt road, lasts about 1 hour and offers captivating landscape views.

Upon arrival, check into your lodge for the night and unwind. Tomorrow marks a significant day as you prepare to fulfill a bucket-list experience: meeting the mountain gorillas.

Day 3: Gorilla Tracking

After an early breakfast, a guide will drive you to the trailhead for briefing before hitting the jungles to find the mountain gorilla family. Trekking through the jungle could take 30 minutes to 4 hours, depending on where the trackers last saw the mountain gorillas the previous evening. Make sure you are physically able to withstand the trek through uneven terrain, damp forest floors, and thick forest cover.

The beauty of this rainforest is spectacular. The area offers a dramatic, steeply forested landscape and is incredibly dense but crisscrossed by numerous animal trails allowing tourists access. The thrill of spending time observing these gentle and endangered giants is an incredible, exciting experience to be long-savoured. Many find it to be a rare and moving opportunity.

When you meet the gorillas, your guide and rangers will allow you only 60 minutes before they escort you back. You can spend more time with the mountain gorillas only when you purchase the Gorilla Habituation Experience Permit which costs USD 1,500 per person. The experience allows a permit holder at least four hours with a semi-habituated gorilla family.

After your experience with the mountain giants, and if you still have the guts to explore the region, you can take an evening guided walk to meet the local community, the Batwa. You can also visit a single-family home, listen to their age-old tales, and delve into their hidden cultures, songs, and music.
