   GENERAL

***Please be aware that you need to book for your Gorilla Safari at least 6 months (but no more than two years) in advance to ensure that requested dates are available for gorilla permits.

 

Overview:

Catch an early-morning flight from Entebbe International Airport to the forests of Kihihi on Day 1. Upon arrival you may relax in their incredible environment or participate in optional forest activities. On Day 2 you will experience your once-in-a-lifetime Bwindi Gorilla Trek. Delve into the dense forest to observe these awe-inspiring creatures in their natural habitat. Your trip ends on Day 3 with an included flight back to Entebbe.

 

Day by Day Itinerary:

Day 1: Flight Entebbe International Airport to Kihihi (B/L/D)

Today you will have an early morning flight from Entebbe to Kihihi. The flight will take you over Lake Victoria, where you will be able to look down at the vastness of the third biggest lake in the world. As you approach Bwindi Impenetrable Forest from the sky you will clearly understand where the forest got its name; flying in is a truly memorable experience. On arrival in Kihihi, a representative will meet you and transfer you to your accommodation for the evening. Enjoy the rest of the day at your leisure to relax and get settled in or participate in one of the many available optional activities such as nature walks, a Batwa Tribe experience, bird watching, a traditional basket weaving class, and Village Walks to name a few.

 

Day 2: Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi - Buhoma Sector (B/L/D)

After breakfast you will take a short drive to the park headquarters for a Gorilla Trekking briefing. You will then be ready for one of the highlights of this safari! There are 13-habituated gorilla groups spread across the four sectors of Bwindi. Each tourist group is made up of a maximum of ten people who go trekking to find one of the gorilla groups. An advance group of trackers will locate the gorillas ahead of time and communicate back to your group. The communication between this advance party and the your group continues until the gorillas stay in one place long enough for you to catch up and spend time with these wonderful primates in their natural habitat. Once contact is made with a gorilla group you will be allowed to observe these incredible creatures for one hour. This strict time limit is to ensure that they don’t become too acclimatized to humans. Once the Gorilla Trek is over you will return to your lodge for a well-earned rest.

 

Day 3: Flight Kihihi to Entebbe (B)

Today you will be transferred to the Kihihi Airstrip after breakfast to check in for your included flight back to Entebbe. Enjoy breathtaking views of Uganda from the air. Your adventure ends upon arrival at the Entebbe International airport.

 

Additional Information:

  • Gorilla tracking in Bwindi can be challenging, and travellers need to be in shape.

 

What to Bring:

  • Walking shoes suitable for steep muddy slopes and carry a rain jacket because the park is often wet.
  • Rain gear, sunscreen lotion, a hat (as the weather is unpredictable) and insect repellent.
  • Extra spending money for personal expenses during your trip: snacks, drinks, souvenirs, tips and souvenirs. As a general guideline we recommend budgeting US$10-15 per day. 

 

Gorilla Trek Rules:

For conservation reasons, visits to the gorillas are tightly controlled. The following rules apply and must be strictly adhered to.

  • No one with a communicable disease (e.g. flu, diarrhea) is allowed to enter the park.
  • Stay together in a tight group while with the gorillas, don’t surround them.
  • Don’t get closer than 7 metres (21 feet) to the gorillas.
  • Don’t eat or smoke when with the gorillas or within a distance of 200 metres from the gorillas.
  • Turn away from the gorillas and cover your nose & mouth if you have to sneeze or cough.
  • Don’t leave litter. All litter must be carried out of the park and disposed off properly.
  • No person under 15 years is allowed to track gorillas.
  • Don’t spit on vegetation or soil when in the park; use your hankie or other garment.

 

Tipping:

As in many areas where tourism is an important contributor to the economy it has become customary to offer a small gratuity to local staff at the end of the tour if service has been of a high standard. Naturally this always remains at your discretion.

 

Yellow Fever Vaccine:

Please note that you are required to have an up-to-date yellow fever vaccine to travel in Uganda. You can arrange this in your home country and bring proof, or you can have the vaccine done in the airport upon arrival to Uganda for around US$40. Rules and restrictions are always changing, so please make sure to do your own research for vaccines and visas before arriving in Uganda.
