Magical Bwindi – 4 Days
Entebbe | Bwindi Impenetrable Forest
Our Magical Bwindi expedition is one that focuses solely on treks into Bwindi Impenetrable Forest to interact with the Gorilla families.
Yours first night at Laico Lake Victoria Hotel is a chance to relax and acclimatize after your international flights. Set in serene surroundings this is the best place to experience Uganda and her warm hospitality. Enjoy a delicious breakfast at the hotel before your driver returns you to the airport for your local flight to Kisoro airstrip.
In the afternoon join your guide for a fascinating community visit to the Batwa peoples village. This is a rare opportunity to interact with one of the oldest peoples on Earth. The Batwa have lived in the mountains for many thousands of year subsisting as hunter gatherers. Ancient traditions and a very simplistic lifestyle keep these people very attuned to their environment and the animals.
Set out early in the morning with your guide and Gorilla permits in search of one of the families to spend time with. The Gorillas move constantly with food availability and finding them can take five minutes or five hours. The hiking in the mountains of this forest is enchanting and magical. The vegetation can be thick and then break out into the side of the mountain with incredible views of the surrounding landscape.
Two days of Gorilla treks will see you thoroughly enchanted and excited with some life long memories to chare of this unique experience.
