The first glimpses of mountain gorillas will be sure to capture hearts and render most speechless - a just reward for the challenging trek. This Ugandan adventure is action packed and sure to satisfy.
Enjoy a game drive through Lake Mburo National Park
Trek through mountainous forest terrain in search of a gorilla family in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest ( Gorilla permit is included ).
Meet Uganda's majestic mountain gorillas for one breath taking hour.
Trekking to find the gorillas can be a challenging and long hike.
You will spend only one hour with the gorillas. There is an option to pre-purchase another gorilla permit to visit the gorillas for a second time on Day 3. However this will result in an altered itinerary. Lake Mburo will be replaced with an additional night in Bwindi.
Day 4 is a long travel day as you head back to Kampala.
This is one of our Short Breaks and is slightly different to our group tours. There is no group leader but rather a local guide with the idea being that you maintain a level of independence during down time. You'll most likely travel on a join-in basis, which means you may or may not be joined by others for activities and transportation, depending on demand.
