Early morning we shall set off from Kampala to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park one of the homes of Mountain Gorillas. It is estimated that half of the world’s surviving population of mountain gorillas reside in Bwindi. About 300 live within Bwindi boundaries. The drive from Kampala to Bwindi is long but entertaining. It is a 465-kilometer drive which will take almost half a day but it is scenic and picture worthy. During our ride towards Bwindi, we will have lunch along the way.

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park offers a dramatic steeply forested landscape and is incredibly dense. It is crisscrossed by numerous animal trails allowing access to tourists. Apart from the mountain gorillas, there are a variety of primates to be seen including the blue monkeys, red tailed monkeys, and black & white colobus monkeys. There are also frequent sightings of Great Blue Turacos which marvel both birders and non-birdwatchers alike.

We will arrive late afternoon and settle in our tranquil accommodation upon our arrival. A good night’s rest is essential to prepare for the action-packed adventure we are to embark on the following day.

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. Packed lunch will be prepared by your accommodation.
