3-Day Grand Gorilla Tour in Bwindi

In Southwestern Uganda at the edge of the western Great Rift Valley, hugging the border of the Democratic Republic of Congo lies Bwindi Forest. Theatrical mountain formations are swathed in 331 square kilometres of the thick tropical forest that earned the name ‘Bwindi Impenetrable’. Every visitor to this secluded habitat describes the meeting as a moving, near-spiritual experience never to be forgotten!

Day 1

Into the Bwidi Impenetrable Forest

After your breakfast, you will be picked up to begin your journey to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park by Nextgen Safaris driver guide. A brief stop at Uganda Equator gives us a chance to look through the many craft markets for a few souvenirs/gifts, and perhaps a cup of coffee as well as a picturesque moment at the equator. This is followed by another stop for lunch in Mbarara. We’ll traverse the rolling hills of the southwestern landscape on our way to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, where we’ll check into our booked lodge in time for dinner.

Day 2

Gorilla Tracking – Batwa Cultural Experience

After a briefing, we’ll venture into Bwindi Forest on foot and enter a world suspended outside of time. The undergrowth thrives with diverse plants, mammals, and birds. It may be minutes or hours before we come upon a gorilla family, but when we finally do, the encounter sweeps us into a timeless moment. We watch the juveniles play as the impressive adults groom and keep a sly but watchful eye on their human visitors. At this moment, a feeling of kinship rises to close the gap that grew between us and our primate relatives over millennia. We’ll descend, elated and arrested in a timeless moment to be told and retold for years to come. We’ll return to the lodge to catch our breath before our next hard adventure with the Batwa people, also known as the pygmies that originated from the Ituri forest of Congo.
