3 Days Bwindi gorilla flying safari – Flying to Kihihi airstrip or Kisoro airstrip is the best way of travelling to Bwindi impenetrable national park for travelers who want to experience more in shorter time as the drive by road is 10 hours from Entebbe international airport or Kampala city.
Usually this trip is perfect add on for travelers who are looking to witness the great wildebeest migration in Tanzania’s Serengeti national park and the thunder of hooves in Kenya’s Masai Mara national reserve.
Fly on a scheduled (daily) flight to Kihihi airstrip or Kisoro airstrips.
Upon arrival at Kihihi or kisoro, you’ll be met by our experienced safari guide and driven to a lodge in Buhoma sector, Rushaga sector or NKuringo sector of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, approximately one hour’s drive. There are a variety of optional activities that can be done this afternoon (time permitting), these include:
Embark on a walk through the tropical rainforest with experienced wildlife guides. Enjoy scenic views, the sights and sounds of the rain forest, ample opportunities for bird watching and glimpses of the many monkey species living in the park as they move through the forest canopy.
Embark on a community walk through the local villages surrounding Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Optional activities include visits to a traditional home, local orphanage or school, banana brewing demonstrations and even meeting traditional medicinal healers. This three to four hour walk is easily tailored to your individual schedule and interests.
Following breakfast at the lodge, travel to National Park Headquarters to meet your guides for the day and begin your gorilla tracking experience. Experienced guides and trackers will accompany your party on an early morning trek into the dense rain forest on the mountain slopes.
The journey, through dense foliage and up steep climbs, is abundantly rewarded with the lifetime experience of viewing mountain gorillas in their natural habitat. You will have an opportunity to be within meters of these magnificent apes, sharing in their daily lives and experiencing their day-to-day activities. Mountain gorillas are extremely rare with only an estimated 1,063 remaining in the wild. This is an experience you won’t soon forget!
Following the trek, return to the lodge and, if time allows, take a guided afternoon forest or community walk. Please note: tracking may be fairly strenuous with treks up to six hours or longer, at high altitudes, not uncommon.
Also, mountain gorillas are wild animals and, as such, sightings cannot be guaranteed. However viewing success rates are over 90%.
Overnight at your booked lodge in Buhoma sector.
