3 Days Luxury Gorilla Flying Safari

3 Days Luxury Gorilla Flying Safari Overview

This 3 Days Luxury Gorilla Flying Safari is a short Uganda primate safari offering you a visit to the world’s most popular and best gorilla trekking destination, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is home to the world’s largest population of mountain gorillas and also to the largest number of habituated mountain gorilla groups open for tourism. On this safari, you are to visit these habituated gorilla families.

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is situated in the far south-western region of Uganda and from Kampala, where most Bwindi safaris start, it is a drive of approximately 10 hours, which is a long day. To save you from a long drive, this safari is typically a flying safari, so you will fly from Entebbe International Airport or Kajjansi Airstrip to Kihihi Airstrip, which serves the Buhoma Sector of Bwindi.

Day 2: Gorilla Tracking

Have an early breakfast and head to Bwindi Forest for a mountain gorilla tracking experience, you will join other visitors at the park’s headquarters for briefing about mountain gorilla trekking and the dos and don’ts starting at 08:00 am.

In groups of 8 people, you will be assigned a gorilla family to trek and head to the starting point for gorilla trekking and head into the forests of Bwindi looking for mountain gorillas. The amount of time taken while looking for mountain gorillas (tracking) depends on the gorilla family you are trekking and where they spent the previous night, the trek takes approximately 30 minutes to over 6 hours.

When you locate the gorillas, you will be allowed to spend 1 hour in their presence. You are advised to stay approximately 8 feet distance from the gorillas as you watch them go on with their normal life in the forests of Bwindi, babies playing on three branches among others. You can take pictures and videos as long as your flash light is off as it irritates the gorillas.

The trek back to the park’s headquarters to pick your gorilla certificates then head to your lodge where you spend the rest of the evening relaxing, alternatively you can head to the Batwa Community situated along the borders of the park. In these communities you will have a deeper insight into the lifestyle of Batwa people, visit the medicine man and be entertained by local dances and drama. Have dinner and stay overnight.
