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. If you arrive early there are many excursions available, and great places to eat. Ask your regional expert for more information.

 

Meals Included: none

Accommodation: Entebbe Backpackers

Day 3: Game Drive and Kazinga Channel Boat Safari

Head out in the morning to enjoy the magnificent game on offer in Queen, including 4 of the 'Big 5', many other big game animals and the vast array of birds that live within the park.

Day 5: Gorilla Tracking

After an early breakfast, you will set off towards what will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of your safari, 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.

After your breakfast in Bwindi, you will transfer back up to Entebbe for your evening flight home, stopping on the way for lunch, and at the equator for the almost compulsory photo with the sign.
