Itinerary

Day 1: Flight Transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park

On this 3 Day Gorilla Habituation Safari, we’ll fly for one and a half hours to Kisoro Airfield. Meet another Buutu Safaris ground guide who will then transfer you to the lodge in Bwindi where you will spend the afternoon leisurely. You can opt for a community visit where you can see women making banana beer for a living. Participate in the process or choose to support the community efforts as a way of improving livelihood in this community. Return  to the lodge and settle in as you prepare for your next days’ trek. 

Meals: Lunch & Dinner

Day 2: Gorilla Trekking & Transfer to Lake Bunyonyi

After an early breakfast, head to the park office at 06:30 am to start off. Thereafter, walk into the depth of the jungle for what is arguably one of the most unique wilderness experiences. Follow the footsteps of your ranger/guide as you make your way through thick undergrowth with the bird sounds in the background as you search for the gorilla families.

This Gorilla Habituation experience can take up to 6 – 10 hours. However, once found the experience of watching these incredible primates in their natural habitat is well worth every ounce of energy expended on the tiring forest trails. With the 4 hours with them, observe the gorillas as they feed, breastfeed, mate and compare many other striking behaviour similarities between us and them. It is most advisable for trekkers to be in good physical condition before embarking on the trails.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
