3 days Bwindi Gorilla Safari

3 days Bwindi Gorilla Safari

This 3-day gorilla tracking safari in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is perfect for anyone who wants to see endangered mountain gorillas in the wild.

The trip starts in Kampala/Entebbe and takes you to the deep misty jungle in south western Uganda, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is a tropical rainforest and a home to more than half of the entire mountain gorilla population in the world.

In Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, you will do your gorilla trek. You will hike through the thick and dark rainforest looking for the family of mountain gorillas assigned to you. This is done under the guidance of a trained park ranger who is familiar with the forest.

After finding the mountain gorillas, you will spend about an hour with them. Being close to a family of wild mountain gorillas is utterly magical! You will take pictures and videos and learn more about the mountain gorillas from the park rangers.
