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

After an early breakfast and briefing, your driver will transfer you to the airport for your flight to Kihihi. Meet another Buutu Safaris ground guide who will then transfer you to the lodge in Bwindi where you will spend the afternoon leisurely. 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 in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park

We’ll trek in Bwindi, home to the largest number of gorillas. We’ll head to the park office at 08:00am for a briefing before we head into the depth of the jungle for what is a most unique wilderness experience. Thereafter, the rangers will walk us down the narrow forest paths through thick tropical undergrowth as we search for the gorilla families. 


Trekking can take between 2-6 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. It is most advisable for trekkers to be in good physical condition before embarking on the trails.

Get in proximity with the gorillas as you quietly observe the gorillas in their natural habitat. Watch the gorillas eat, groom and play. Packed lunch is offered during the day. 


Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
