You have always wished to trek gorillas but your budget and time have always limited you? This 3 day budget gorilla trekking tour to Bwindi is then perfect for you. You will spend 3 days in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park located in southwestern Uganda and home to half of the endangered mountain gorillas (approximately 400 individuals).. Depending on availability of gorilla permits at the time of confirmation, you may trek gorillas in Buhoma, Ruhija, Rushaga or Nkuringo
Depart Entebbe\Kampala for your 6-7 road transfer to Lake Bunyonyi located in the Eastern side Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. You will have an en route stopover at the Equator crossing for photographic and simple experiment before continuing to Mbarara for Lunch. After lunch, you will embark on your scenic drive to Bwindi NP.
After an early morning breakfast, you will drive to the Park headquarters for registration and joining others for a gorilla trekking briefing about the dos and the don’ts during your Gorilla Trek. Once this is done, you will trek through thick creepers and undergrowth with your guides to find the Gorillas, which can take you from half an hour to three quarters of the day. The steeply forested landscape is incredibly dense but crisscrossed by numerous animal trails allowing access to tourists. On your trek, you are likely to spot other primates, birds and rare tree species. After finding the gorillas, you will be allowed to spend one hour with them before trekking back to the Park headquarter. This is indeed an extraordinary feeling being with these beautiful yet endangered Creatures. You will be awarded a certificate for participating in gorilla trekking and thus contributing to the conservation of mountain gorillas. Overnight at your booked lodge.
After your breakfast, you will be driven to Kampala or Entebbe for your post tour accommodation or you may choose to fly out of Uganda today.
