We will behold an exquisite view of an ancient rainforest. It is one of the few in Africa that have flourished throughout the last ice age. It boasts to be the one of the most biologically diverse forests in Africa. When we land at Kihihi Airport, our vehicle will be waiting to take us to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park has at least 90 mammal species, including 11 primates and is ranked as one of the best in Uganda for forest birding. There is about 23 highly localised Albertine Rift endemics.

We shall proceed to the park offices to begin our adventure with the gentle giants. A briefing will take place at the park headquarters. The duration of the activity will depend on the sighting and movement of the gorillas. It can span from 1 to 8 hours. The sight of the mountain gorillas will be truly an experience to remember. Mountain gorillas are endangered ape species and there are only few left in the world. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is a unique destination since it is the only place in Africa that mountain gorillas and chimpanzees co-exist. Your visit to them will help, as the park permits which you have purchased to enter the park will fund conservation. After the day’s action-packed adventure, we shall return to your lodge to rest overnight and have dinner.
