Day 1: Kampala – Bwindi National Park (9-10 hours)

Meet your local shoebill guide for quite some long journey to the South Western Part of Uganda. Despite the long drive, the route is punctuated by beautiful scenery so stopover is a must. A remarkable stop over at the Equator for memorable photography. There are several souvenirs shops if you want to start shopping right away. Lunch in the calm town of Mbarara and proceed through the hilly countryside. You will pass traditional homesteads and have panoramic views of the surroundings. Evening arrival in Bwindi.
Dinner and overnight at Silverback Lodge. (L-D)

Day 2: Gorilla Tracking Bwindi forest

Morning transfer to the briefing point of Park offices to ready you for a thrilling activity of a lifetime. Those who love hiking will love Bwindi Impenetrable forest even more. Tracking can range from any time from 30 minutes to 8 hours depending on the location of your group. Expect to walk a long distance in steep and muddy conditions, sometimes with rain overhead, before you encounter the gorillas. The trekking is worthwhile as you have a close encounter with these forest giants. Enjoy them as eat, play and rest. Gorillas live in groups/families just like human beings and as you watch them you will realise that they run and interact just as we do in our homes. Even in the jungle the baby gorillas will always be babies as the Silverback constantly reminds them he is fully in charge. For conservation purposes, time spent with the gorillas is limited to one hour and after you descend back to your Lodge.
Dinner and overnight at Silverback Lodge. (B-L-D)
