Day 1 Kampala
Depart Kampala at 7am and drive through magnificent countryside and tropical bamboo forest on our way to Kisoro (approx 9 hours). We will make some stops along the way; at the Equator for photographs and and for lunch in Mbarara, before an afternoon arrival into Kisoro.
Day 2 Gorilla Trek
Start your day with a search for the rare mountain gorilla trek in a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, Bwindi’s Impenetrable Forest, a true African jungle. This is the world’s most endangered ape, and is found only in small portions of protected afro-montane forests in northwest Rwanda, southwest Uganda and eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. Your guide will take you along river trails with delightful waterfalls, up steep slopes and into forest clearings in search of these gentle giants. Although the hike is physically demanding the beauty of the forest and surrounding scenery make the trekking worthwhile. Once the gorillas are located all fatigue is forgotten, as the experience is often described as being the most profound natural history experience in the world. Approximately 98% of the gorilla treks are successful but there is no guarantee that you will see the gorillas.
Day 3 Depart Kampala
Depart early for the return drive to Kampala. Stop just after Masaka town at Mpambiire drum village to see the Ugandan drum craftsmen at work. We arrive back in Kampala in the early evening where your tour ends.
