Tour Introduction

3 Days Bwindi Gorilla Trekking Uganda Gorilla Safari will take you to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest for a memorable gorilla trekking safari and other escapades. Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is home to more than half of the world’s mountain Gorilla populations that currently face extinction.

Other primates include; the black and white colobus monkeys, red-tailed monkeys, baboons, Blue Monkeys, and many others.  


After the morning breakfast, by 7 am our Uganda tour guide will be ready to pick you up to transfer you from Kampala to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Prior to setting off, our professional tour guide will brief you on how the journey is expected to be all along as you travel. You will experience amazing sceneries and encounters along the journey; you may also have multiple stopovers at some points when you stop an amazing sight worth capturing! You can also ask him about the gorilla tracking encounter just to prepare your mind before the experience. On the way, we will have a stopover at the equator, stretch with an optional experimental movement of water (clockwise and anticlockwise) between the south and Northern Hemisphere. You can also have a moment to take as many photos as possible at this point. We can also have coffee/teacup at the equator and then proceed to Mbarara, nicknamed “the land of milk”, evidenced by the presence of the long-horned cattle along the way. This is where you will have a stopover for lunch. After lunch, we shall resume our journey, and the next stop should be at the lodge and check-in at the lodge which probably has to be close or in the Bwindi Forest Recommended Accommodation facilities: Sanctuary Gorilla forest camp Buhoma lodge Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge Mahogany Springs Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge Gorilla Safari Lodge Rushanga Gorilla Camp Gorilla Heights Lodge

This is the highlight of our trip Gorilla Trekking that every traveler is looking out to experience. After breakfast, you will be given a briefing at the park offices; this will impart you with prior knowledge on how to conduct yourself while out in the jungle before being guided in the forest by the park ranger guide. You will also be escorted by the touring police to protect you against any threats be it from forest Elephants, buffalos, and even wild Gorillas. Trekking of the gorillas depends on how lucky you were on the family of the gorilla you were permitted to trek. After spotting your gorilla family, then you will be given an hour to spend with the family up close. After this, you will return back to your lodge for an overnight dinner!

Good To Know

About Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in southwestern Uganda. It is home to roughly half of the world's remaining population of mountain gorillas, making it one of the most important conservation areas in the world.

The park covers an area of 321 square kilometres and is named after the dense forest that covers much of its terrain. In addition to gorillas, it is also home to other primates, such as chimpanzees and colobus monkeys, as well as a diverse array of bird species.

The park offers visitors the opportunity to go on gorilla tracking expeditions, where they can observe the gorillas in their natural habitat. These expeditions are highly regulated and require a permit, as well as a trained guide to ensure the safety of both the visitors and the gorillas.

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is not only important for its conservation efforts but also for the economic benefits it provides to the surrounding communities through tourism.


Best time to Visit Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
The best time to visit Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda is during the dry seasons, which run from December to February and from June to September. During these months, the weather is generally dry and sunny, and the trails are easier to navigate.

However, it is important to note that Bwindi is a rainforest, and rainfall can occur throughout the year. Even during the dry season, there may be some rain, so visitors should be prepared with appropriate clothing and gear.

It's also worth noting that the high season for gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is from June to September and December to February, so it's advisable to book permits and accommodations well in advance during these periods.

The low season, from March to May and October to November, can be a good time to visit for those who prefer fewer crowds and lower prices, but the trails may be more challenging due to heavier rainfall.
