This 4 Day Bwindi gorilla safari to Uganda is an exceptional tour package taking you on a magical mountain gorilla encounter and wildlife viewing in the savanna.  

ITINERARY

Start your Uganda safari tour from Entebbe upon arrival at Entebbe International Airport or Kampala city, from a hotel facility you could have booked prior to the flight. Our professional tour guide will then pick you up and head for Queen Elizabeth National Park; your first destination in the 4 days of Bwindi gorilla safari Uganda & wildlife package. Take the Kampala-Masaka-Mbarara city route which allows you to make a stopover at the Equator crossing in Kayabwe for a photo moment. As you continue with the drive, you can have more stopovers at spots you will notice that offer a fulfilling green impression of the vegetation cover in the Pearl of Africa! It is a long route taking you about 5-7 hours’ drive but rewarding. Enjoy the view of the beautiful surrounding areas en-route and arrive at Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda’s second largest park after Murchison Falls National Park. Undertake an afternoon lunch trip on Kazinga Channel, a 45 km channel that stretches to connect 2 magical lakes; Lake George and Lake Edward. For about 2-3 hours on a boat cruise, expect to excite yourself with the remarkable sight of submerged hippos, and Nile crocodiles as they bask on the banks, aquatic birds, and others.

Begin your day with a leisurely cup of tea or coffee and after, undertake a morning game drive via Kasenyi Plains of Queen Elizabeth National Park. A game drive is Queen’s top safari highlight and you will perfectly get the best of this wildlife experience in a 4×4 Land Cruiser or Safari Van with a pop-up roof. Enjoy 2-3 hours of viewing a diversity of wildlife ranging from elephants, buffaloes, warthogs, waterbucks, Uganda Kobs, leopards, spotted hyenas, and birds to mention but a few. Retreat from a game drive along Kasenyi track to check out of the lodge then drive to Bwindi through the Ishasha area in the Southern Queen Elizabeth National Park.

You will track one of the 20 (twenty) habituated gorilla groups. Your adventure takes 2-6 hours inclusive of one hour to be spent with mountain gorillas. After a gorilla trek, descend back to your lodge for a lunch break and check out ready to transfer to Lake Bunyonyi. Enjoy a boat ride along Lake Bunyonyi to any one of the 29 islands.
