4 Days Gorilla Safari

4 Days Double Gorilla Trekking Safari

This short three-night adventure takes you into the World Heritage Site of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in search of the mountain gorillas. Our ape cousins live throughout the forest so a variety of enchanting journeys are available through the primeval forest during your mountain gorilla safari in Uganda.

Day 1: Arrival in Kigali – Bwindi

Our representative will meet you at Kigali International airport to transfer you to Kisorovia Cyanika Border. Please ensure that you book a morning flight to Kigali as we will require about 4 hours to drive to Bwindi. Your accommodation will be at the shores of Lake Mutanda.
Overnight: Lake Mutanda Resort
Meals:Full Board

Day 2: Gorilla Tracking – Rushaga Sector

Certainly one of the most exciting days of your safari; today you will be gorilla tracking. Breakfast will be served early and lunch will be packed. The briefing is at 7 am. Your guide will give you highlights of specific details about the way of life of the gorillas you will be tracking. The hike can take anything from one to seven hours. Trekking through the steep, densely forested hills and then finally coming across the gorillas camouflaged in the vegetation is an inspiring and privileged moment. Once you reach the gorillas, you are allowed to spend one hour with them as you stand 6 meters away. Upon completion of this magical encounter, you will drive you back to the lodge where you can relax in the afternoon or go for another walk to visit one of the communities around.

Day 3: Second Gorilla Tracking – Nkuringo Sector

Today we enjoy a second day of gorilla trekking in a different location, setting out once more to the briefing point after an early breakfast. Once the gorillas are located, our small group will be allowed a maximum of one hour with them. Gorilla trekking is one of the world’s truly memorable wildlife experiences – a look into one of these magnificent creature’s eyes brings home the bond that exists between them and us. The hour is often over all too quickly, and we slowly make our way back to our lodge to recount the day’s adventures.

Day 4: Kigali and departure

Depart the lodge and say goodbye to Uganda heading for Kigali International airport. Depending on your flight departure time, you will take some time off to visit the genocide memorial center before you depart Rwanda. The driver will drop you off at the airport well in time for your check in.
