Introduction

This amazing adventure takes us to ‘Bwindi Impenetrable Forest’ in Uganda’s mountainous far southwestern tip where you will have the opportunity to track Mountain Gorillas.  

Highlights:  
•  Discover the southern region of the Pearl of Africa optimizing the transfer times
•  Fly to Kisoro and out of Kihihi with daily departures and no minimum of participants  
•  Unforgettable encounter with the Mountain Gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park
•  Beautiful hike “across” Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, accompanied by professional guide and armed rangers
•  Meet, explore and learn from the local communities  
•  Support sustainable tourism initiatives   
 
Specially created for: 
•  Nature lovers
•  Safari aficionados
•  Walking enthusiasts
•  Adventure travellers
•  Perfect for those guests who prefer a “short” hike across Bwindi or wish to continue by road to Queen Elizabeth National Park (skipping the flight Kihihi-Entebbe), but if you can take an extra day then we certainly recommend to overnight in Buhoma on the last day!
