Itinerary: 4 Day Flying Safari to the Gorillas in Bwindi Forest

The flight is less than 60 minutes. Upon arrival at the air strip, you will find another tour guide from our company waiting for you to transfer to Mahogany springs Lodge on Northern Bwindi or Chameleon Hill Lodge in Southern Bwindi. It is between 90 and 120 minutes drive in a 4×4 safari vehicle.

Have breakfast at the lodge and you will assemble at the park headquarters (with packed lunch/snacks and water) for briefing from the Park rangers about the dos and don’ts while with the Gorillas, before embarking on the memorable activity of tracking the amazing apes. Gorilla tracking will take you through thick vegetation and the ease of finding the Gorillas will depend on their movement in their natural habitat. A maximum of one hour will be allowed with the Gorillas for photographing, video recording and observation. Later descend to your Lodge for late Lunch. In the evening, if interested, you may go for cultural walk to nearby communities, where you will be entertained by the Batwa Community, and learn more about their Unique history. Dinner and overnight at your lodge on DAY 1.
