5 days Uganda: Gorilla galore

Did you know that mountain gorillas hum and fart when eating, love to cuddle and are said to be scared of water, caterpillars and chameleons? If you plan to come to Uganda with the sole goal of meeting with these sturdy creatures, this might not come as a surprise.

Still you might discover some unknown traits while studying your favourite animals for one full hour in the lush Bwindi Impenetrable Forest – or four if you decide to visit one of the less habituated groups that still need to get used to people. Observe them grooming each other, humming and singing. Feel your smiles getting bigger while they munch on twigs, fart, play and cuddle with the little ones. Feeling like your regular Tarzan, tempted to stay? Then be warned: the silverback male weighs 180 kilogrammes, is six times stronger than you AND doesn’t like strangers. So better keep your distance, enjoy the moment and return home with memories to cherish forever.

Day 1

Arrival at Entebbe International Airport

You arrive at Entebbe International Airport, your gateway to the diverse beauty of Uganda! This is the country of adventurous mountain gorilla and chimp trekking, stunning wildlife safaris, amazing road trips and wilderness adventures by boat, bike, horse or foot. Experience the warm hospitality of the Ugandan people and be amazed by the cultural encounters with the different indigenous tribes. With us, you’ll experience it all!

Day 2

Drive from Entebbe / Kampala to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

The drive from the city of Entebbe (or Kampala) to the stunning wilderness of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park takes approximately nine hours. But don't worry, the beautiful landscape, forests and mountains and the chance of seeing wildlife along the way make this a fascinating road trip. And of course, the perspective of going on a trek to see the endangered mountain gorillas the next day makes it definitely worth your while!

Accommodations:

Day 3

Mountain gorilla trekking in Rushaga (southern sector)

The Rushaga sector in the south of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is special: eight gorilla families have made this green paradise their home, and a few of those are not used to humans yet. During a mountain gorilla trekking tour, you hike over relatively easy trails and spend an hour with the groups used to humans, or four hours with the furry giants not used to seeing you in their natural habitat. Watch the lazy ones eat, the young ones play and the silverback guarding his territory. This truly once-in-a-lifetime experience will leave you in awe forever… and maybe even bring a tear of joy to your eyes.

Accommodations:

Day 4 - 5

Drive back to Entebbe / Kampala

As you drive back to Entebbe, you again pass through the villages with their lively marketplaces and the outstretched countryside with tea and coffee plantations, smooth green hills and the occasional wildlife waving you goodbye. After several days of sheer adventure, even the ride back to Entebbe is an experience to enjoy!
