Day 3: Bwindi Forest

On day three we rise early for breakfast, before the gorilla trek briefing at 8:00am by rangers from the Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA).

Gorilla trekking is the highlight of visiting Uganda. We embark on this once in a lifetime wildlife experience, encountering the endangered gorillas in the wild.


The guides lead you into the bush, pushing through the undergrowth to track the Bwindi mountain gorillas. This gorilla walk can take up to 6 hours, so a reasonable degree of fitness and a sturdy pair of walking shoes are a must.


After a rewarding trek through the jungle we sit in the forest among the mountain gorillas, listening to them communicating with one another. Marvel at the sheer size of the dominant adult male gorillas, called Silverbacks and experience one of Africa’s most poignant wildlife encounters. After lunch in the forest we take a well-deserved rest or enjoy some bird watching.

We return to the community run safari camp to relax and recuperate after our unforgettable gorilla trek in the Bwindi Forest of Uganda.

In the afternoon we take a guided walk in the Buhoma Village to gain insight into the lives of the local people, living in the area around the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.
