DAY. To Bwindi impenetrable national park.
Depart from Kampala early morning and proceed south-west. Have a stop over at the Equator where you will have an opportunity to stand in 2 hemispheres at the same time an take some photos. The drive takes you through savannah grasslands seeing banana plantations and herds of Ankole cattle with their incredible long curving horns. Then you ascend into the Kigezi highlands, known as the “Switzerland of Africa“, with terraced farming and mountain scenery to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Overnight at your lodge.
Day 2. Bwindi Mountain Gorilla tracking.
A morning cup of coffee or tea is recommended before your gorilla tracking safari. You will then head to the briefing point at the park headquarters and from here you will be briefed about the does and don’ts while in the jungle forest with the gentle Giants. You will be provided with walking sticks and you are also advised to have your lunch parked with enough drinking water. Staring into the pensive brown eyes of these gentle giants, who share 95% of their genes with humans, is as humbling as it is thrilling. After tracking you will travel back to your lodge, relax dinner and overnight stay at your lodge.
