5 Days Uganda Gorilla Trekking Tour

The gorilla trekking tour and primate adventure in Uganda will take you to Bwindi national park as well as Kibale forest national park in the southwestern part of the country!

You will have the incredible opportunity to view the critically endangered Mountain Gorillas as well as Chimpanzees in their native habitats while moving at a more leisurely pace.

Day 1:Travel to Bwindi National Park

You will be picked up from wherever you are staying by one of our experienced guides, and then the two of you will travel together to the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. The park is a forested area that is located on the lowlands of the outer fringes of a hilly area. It is well known for housing half of the world’s total population of mountain gorillas. Come at the park in the evening, but if there is enough time, enjoy some of the entertainment provided by cultural dancers from the communities that are nearby. This is going to be one exciting performance! At your lodge, both dinner and bed will be provided.

Day 2: An encounter with the mountain gorillas

After an early and hearty breakfast, make your way to the park’s administrative offices for a briefing so that you may get started on the thrilling gorilla tracking expedition as soon as possible. The tour guide will brief you on the plans for the day around 9:00 a.m., and then you will head into the jungle to look for these peaceful giants. The length of time that this expedition will endure is extremely hard to forecast, but it will primarily be based on the activities of the gorillas. The process of tracking these animals will require you to climb up and down steep, rugged terrain, which can be exhausting but is also exciting and full of adventure. However, the satisfaction you will feel after finally meeting one of these docile giants will be well worth the time and effort you put into tracking them down. After spending an hour with them, you will go back to your lodge to eat and then sleep for the night.

Day 3: The journey to Kibale National Park.
After an action-packed breakfast, you will leave Bwindi and make your way to Kibale Forest National Park. The park is widely known as “the primate capital” of the world since it is home to both the greatest variety of monkeys and the greatest number of primates found anywhere in East Africa or the rest of Africa. Another activity that can be done at the park is going birding because it has numerous different parts of rainforests, which provide a safe haven for birds. After arriving in the late afternoon, you will tour the area that is known for its crater lakes, and then you will return to the lodge for dinner and to spend the night there.

Day 4: Chimpanzee tracking in the morning and a walk through the Bigodi wetland sanctuary in the afternoon.
After eating a full breakfast, you should get ready for an adventurous adventure that will involve tracking chimpanzees through a beautiful forest. In addition to multiple counts of squirrels and butterflies, you will have the opportunity to witness a variety of different primates, such as baboons, bush babies, colobus monkeys, and mangabeys. You may also encounter other animals, such as numerous counts of squirrels. Your walk will be a lot more interesting for you thanks to our knowledgeable guide, who will tell you all about the animals and plants that live in the forest. After lunch, take a stroll around the Bigodi Swamp sanctuary to take in some bird watching and learn more about the unique wetland vegetation and wildlife that call this sanctuary home. After completing your day’s activities, head back to your lodge for dinner and lodging for the night.

Day 5: Travel by land to return to Kampala
Following breakfast, you will begin the journey back to Kampala, taking with you some wonderful new experiences. You should stop for lunch somewhere along the road, and while you’re there, you should also take some pictures at the equator. After a long journey from the western countryside, you will arrive in Kampala late in the afternoon. Upon arrival, make your way to your hotel so that you may relax. Have a meal and a night’s rest in the lodge you’ve chosen.
