Day 1: Transfer to Bwindi National Park
Pick up from your hotel by 8am after breakfast and hit the road to the home of gorillas, enroute stop at the equator for photographs and break tea, and then proceed to Bwindi Impenetrable National park.

You will arrive by early evening, check into your rooms, dinner and overnight at Wagtail Eco Safari Camp, Gorilla Mist Camp / Gift of Nature Lodge / Mahogany Springs Lodge.
Day 2: Gorilla Trekking Bwindi Forest
Breakfast followed by a briefing before setting off to the forest in search for gorillas. You must have packed water. The time you will take searching these gentle giants ranges between 2 to 8hrs depending on how they move in their natural environment. You must be physically fit to trek through steep rocks and slippery jungle grounds, climbing up and down making it tiresome. However, the thrill of encountering these giant Apes erases the poor memories you went through in trying to search for them. Retire to your lodge for late lunch, time permitting, take an evening walk to nearby communities or Batwa people (pygmies) or cultural entertainment. Dinner and overnight at Wagtail Eco Safari Camp, Gorilla Mist Camp / Gift of Nature Lodge / Mahogany Springs Lodge.
