Overview

A 3 night fly-in safari from Entebbe to Bwindi is perfect for those short on time and keen to experience one of the most thrilling wildlife encounters on earth, trekking Mountain Gorillas.

Please note that we often have to add on a preceding night in Entebbe or Kampala depending on your flight arrival time.

Situated just inside the Park gate, Buhoma Lodge offers wonderful views out over the forest - and they often have gorillas and other primates IN the garden!

This gorilla safari can also be tailored to add in game viewing in Queen Elizabeth National Park or chimp trekking in Kibale - chat to us today and we will design your ideal Uganda adventure.

Mountain Gorilla Trekking

Mountain gorillas are wild animals and, as such, sightings cannot be guaranteed. However viewing success rates are over 90%. Once sighted, visitors are allowed an hour with the gorillas. Overnighting in Bwindi is required the night before tracking due to your early morning start. As tracking can sometimes take a full day, a second nights accommodation is also highly recommended. Ideally 2 to 3 nights are suggested to enjoy this region.

Gorilla tracking timings and conditions vary tremendously as the gorillas move continuously through the rain forest. It is good to be prepared and remember the weather can change with very little warning. The terrain is often steep and through areas where there are no marked paths. It can be VERY strenuous – it may be just a couple of hours but it can also be for a full day of up to 8 hours or more of hiking in hot, high altitude conditions – please be prepared for this by being as fit as possible!

Gorilla Permit: Please note that the Gorilla permit is NOT included at this stage, as some people want one permit and some want two. However we will arrange it & include it in your final invoice, along with any extra activities you may wish to do (see below).

Extra Activities:

  • Gorilla permit of $700 per person
  • Forest walk at $70 per person
  • Community visit at $50 per person
