3 DAYS UGANDA GORILLA TRACKING SAFARI

Gorilla Trekking Adventure in Bwindi National Park

The park is located in the South-Western Uganda on the edge of the Western Rift valley. Bwindi is home to over 350 endangered mountain gorillas which are quite possibly the most awe-inspiring animals to be found in Africa. There are also 346 species of birds and over 200 species of butterflies. Gorilla tracking is the major tourist activity in Bwindi with four habituated groups currently available daily for tourists. The Mubare group (10 gorillas, 1 silverback) was opened for tourism in 1993, the Habinyanja group (18 gorillas, 2 silverbacks) was ready in July 1998, the Rusheguru group (10 gorillas, 1 silverback) was opened in July 2002 while the Nkuringo group (19 gorillas , 2 silverbacks ) was opened for tourism in April 2004 . Gorilla tracking in Bwindi can be challenging and requires a certain level of physical fitness. The tracking starts early morning and can last from a few hours to a full day’s hike depending on the movement of these giant apes.

3 DAY'S GORILLA TOUR.

DAY 1: Kampala - Bwindi Forest

Depart early morning from Kampala and head towards Western Uganda. A brief stop at the Equator allows time for photographs. During the drive you will see herds of the long -horned Ankole cattle, the rolling hills and terraced landscapes of the region, and beautiful panoramas that are part of Kabale District. We have a lunch break en-route at Lake View Regency Hotel Mbarara. We arrive at the park in the late evening. Overnight at Gorilla Resort Camp or Buhoma Community Bandas.

DAY 2: Gorilla Tracking in Bwindi

After an early morning briefing from the rangers, you will proceed to the forest for gorilla tracking. You are advised to carry packed lunch because the hike’s length is unpredictable. After tracking, return to the lodge for dinner and overnight.

DAY 3: Return to Kampala

After an early breakfast at the camp, drive back to Kampala having lunch en-route. Thank you for choosing an Abacus safari!
