This 3 Days Gorilla Safari takes you into the jungles of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park to track the mountain gorillas. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park lies in southwestern Uganda on the edge of the Rift Valley. The “impenetrable forest” protects nearly more than half of the remaining mountain gorillas in the world and it is one of the best places to go gorilla trekking in Africa.

Day 1: Depart Kampala for Bwindi
Depart from Kampala at 7:00am and head towards south western Uganda. A brief stop at the Equator allows time for photographs and refreshments as well a visit to the craft shops. The journey affords views from the vehicle of the long horned Ankole cattle, in Mbarara, the rolling hills, terraced landscapes and the beautiful panorama of Kabale. We have a lunch break en route in Mbarara with an option of visiting the Igongo cultural center to experience the Ankole culture. Continue to Bwindi Impenetrable Park and arrive late evening.

Day 2 : Trekking Mountain Gorillas in Bwindi NP
After breakfast and briefing by park ranger guides, depart with picnic lunch boxes to start a 30 minutes – 8 hours trek to find the Mountain gorillas as you hike up and down slippery slopes with dense mist covered vegetation. This strenuous quest will eventually bring you to the face of one of the most sought after creatures-the mountain gorilla. After a full hour with them while observing and learning their behavior as you take photos, return to the Camp for dinner and overnight.

For a year I worked with Samuel and silverback safaris planning this trip to Uganda with 5 other family members from Canada. Samuel was prompt at responding to all of my emails back and fourth making changes when necessary and offering suggestions based on his vast knowledge and experience hosting and guiding travellers on safaris. We did Murchison Falls 4 days, Queen Elizabeth 4 days and Bwindi Trekking for Gorillas 4 days. Our Accommodations at each safari were beautiful and unique from each other. The food was always fantastic as well!
Samuel had so much knowledge to share throughout our very long road trips and made us very comfortable throughout those long journeys.
Because of Samuels wonderful sense of humour and his continuous kindness he easily fit right in with my family and I. We will most certainly be booking with him again! I highly recommend Silverback for all your safari needs. Thanks again silverback!! And we can't wait to see you next time!!
