Walking Safari

Walking Safari gives you the opportunity to move at the pace of nature.

Conservationists and animal lovers will love this 3-day Ugandan tour. You get to see the gorillas in the Bwindi Gorilla Rain Forest, which, together with another park in Rwanda, provides some of the rare habitat for this endangered species.

This Ugandan safari will take you gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, which covers an area of 321 sq km and is among the oldest forests in the world, having been in existence for over 25,000 years. You will be able to track one of the 12 habituated mountain gorilla groups.

You will also have an opportunity to see other primates such as:

  • Red-tailed monkeys
  • Chimpanzees
  • Baboons
  • Black and white colobus monkeys

This forest is home to a vast variety of species: 120 mammals, 51 reptiles, 310 butterflies, 27 frogs, geckos, chameleons, 163 trees, 104 ferns, 1000 flowering plants, and over 350 birds, including hornbills and turacos!

Itinerary

Day 1 Kampala – Bwindi Gorilla Forest (550 km – 6 to 7 hours)

Depart from Kampala by road and head south-west to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. There will be a short stop at the Equator for an informative talk as well as a photographic opportunity. Continue to Mbarara where we will stop for lunch.  The drive will take you through Uganda’s rolling green hills and the highlands, known as the ‘Switzerland of Uganda’. The road then heads even higher, to where you can see the triangular peaks of the Virunga volcanoes of Rwanda and the Congo. We then drop down into a valley, to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, home of the mountain gorilla. Tonight you will sleep to the sounds of the mountain rainforest.

  • Overnight in Bwindi Gorilla Forest
  • Accommodation at Gorilla Safari lodge
  • Lunch and dinner included
  • Drinking water is provided. All other drinks are extra.

Day 2 Mountain Gorilla Tracking in Bwindi

Up relatively early for a hearty breakfast to give you the energy needed for gorilla tracking. Before 8:00 am, report to the ranger station for registration and a talk by one of the rangers. The guides will then take you through the bush, pushing your way through the undergrowth, parting thick creepers, to track the gorillas. (This trek can take from half an hour to 5 hours – a reasonable degree of fitness is required, as well as a sturdy pair of walking shoes.) You will be able to sit in the forest among the gorillas, listening to them grumbling to each other, and marvel at the sheer size of the dominant male, the silverback. It is an extraordinary feeling sitting in the dense rainforest knowing you are with a few of the last remaining mountain gorillas. There are only about 650 of these beautiful creatures left!

If you have the energy in the afternoon, take a guided walk on the Munyaga River trail, which is an ideal short walk. This trail leads to three delightful crystal clear waterfalls where there is a profusion of tree ferns, epiphytic ferns, orchids and Bwindi’s colourful butterflies. Here you may also see birds and primates from the forest edge. Another option is a guided village walk to see how the Ugandans live.

  • Overnight in Bwindi Gorilla Forest
  • Accommodation at Gorilla Safari lodge
  • Breakfast, Lunch and dinner included
  • Drinking water is provided. All other drinks are extra.

Day 3 Bwindi Gorilla Forest – Kampala (550 km – 6 to 7 hours)

After an early breakfast, we leave the “Jewel of Uganda” behind and start the journey back to Kampala. You will enjoy the scenery – lush vegetation, rolling hills and steeply terraced fields. We have lunch in Mbarara and stop further on at the Mpambire Drum Making Centre. After buying some of these drums, we continue to Kampala, arriving in the late afternoon. The guide will drop you off at the hotel or at the airport to catch your flight back home.

  • No accommodation included
  • Breakfast and lunch included, but not dinner
  • Drinking water is provided. All other drinks are extra.
