Day 1: Flight transfer to Kihihi + Road transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park

If time permits, we’ll visit a Batwa pygmy village to experience the ancient ways of life of early forest inhabitants.

Meals: Lunch & Dinner

Day 2: Gorilla Trekking

On this 6 Days Gorillas & Masai Mara Big 5 Safari, we’ll trek in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, home to the biggest number of mountain gorillas among all national parks. After briefing at 08:00 am, we’ll head into the depth of the jungle for what is a most unique wilderness experience. The rangers will walk you down the narrow forest paths through thick undergrowth. Once found, the rangers will brief us through the dos and don’ts before making any contact with the mountain gorillas.

We’ll spend up to 1 hour watching the gorillas in their natural habitat. We’ll get in proximity with the gorillas as you quietly observe the gorillas play, eat, forage, groom, sleep and if we are lucky, we’ll get to watch the gorillas mate. This once in a lifetime experience will give us unique insights into the life and social dynamics of the gorilla families. Gorilla watching also gives us a chance to observe the uncanny similarities between gorillas and human beings and gorillas with whom we share 98% DNA. If we are lucky, we will experience the playfully exuberant energy of the juveniles who often skip from branch to branch and play with heightened enthusiasm when in the presence of humans.
After seeing the mountain gorillas, we’ll break for a picnic lunch in the forest before embarking on the hike back to the gorilla lodge.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
