Introduction

This 5 day Uganda Gorilla Safari starts with an overnight in Entebbe. The following day you will fly to Kihihi the closest airstrip to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. This is a region of volcanoes, jagged valleys, waterfalls, lakes and dramatic mountain ranges.  Mahogany Springs is situated in one of the most intimate, secluded, beautiful and most importantly natural settings in the world and it's just a few minutes away from the gorilla tracking starting point. This will be your base for 3 nights and where you can experience a unique encounter with the mountain gorillas.  Sit in the forest among the gorillas, listening to them ‘talk’ to one another, 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. It's amazing to think there are only about 650 of these beautiful creatures left.
