Full Itinerary:
 
Day 1: Arrive in Entebbe
Upon arrival at Entebbe International Airport, you will be met by your guide, briefed about your upcoming journey and transferred to your lodge. We feel it's best to stay in Entebbe after your flight, the last thing you want to do after a long flight is going on another long car journey. This boutique lodge less than 10 minutes from the airport is the perfect place to relax. If you arrive early there are many excursions available in Entebbe, and great places to eat. Ask your regional expert for more information.
 
Meals included: None
Accommodation: Boma Guest House
 
Day 2: Transfer to Bwindi
After your breakfast at the lodge, you will make the long drive down to Bwindi, stopping along the way for lunch and at the equator. The drive can be long but interesting as you pass through towns and villages, taking in the beautiful views and the culture.  Your lodge is in an excellent location, just outside the park and raised up to make the most of the spectacular view down the valley, over the dense jungle.
 
Meals included: Breakfast and dinner
Accommodation: Haven Lodge
 
Day 3: Gorilla Tracking
After an early breakfast, you will set off on the unforgettable experience that is Mountain Gorilla tracking. After trekking through the dense forest to where the Gorillas were found the day before, you begin your tracking, searching for the largest primate in the world. Upon sighting the gorillas, you will stay with them for one hour as they eat, rest and bond with their young. To reach them it can take anywhere between 30 mins to 4 hours, so be prepared for a long trek through the humid rainforest. Afterwards, you will spend the afternoon relaxing and taking in your beautiful surroundings.
