6 days Uganda: Wildlife safari & Gorilla trekking

A bit of safari with a dash of gorillas. This short, sweet and relaxing 6-day journey introduces you to the best of what Uganda has to offer.

This tour is packed with stunning road trips, amazing wildlife, a calming cruise on the massive but peaceful Kazinga Channel in Queen Elizabeth National Park, and the encounter of a lifetime in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park – the cherry on the cake. Having said that, meeting mountain gorillas is not for the faint-hearted. It takes a two to six-hour hike into the emerald jungle of Bwindi, following the footsteps of your machete-sweeping guide. But once there, these intimidating but gentle giants will surely sweep you off your feet. Figuratively of course!

Day 5

Mountain gorilla trekking in Buhoma (northern sector)

The Buhoma sector lies in the north of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and is home to four gorilla families. It’s the largest sector and the place that pioneered gorilla trekking in Uganda. The first trailhead opened here in 1993 with just one gorilla family. Trekking is physically not the most challenging in this sector, but avid hikers will love it as it boasts some of the most spectacular forest trails in Africa.
