OVERVIEW

If you have limited vacation time but have always wanted to see the gorillas, then this itinerary idea ticks all the boxes. It keeps travelling time to a minimum by flying you by light aircraft between Entebbe and Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, and keeps the focus firmly on some of the world’s most superb gorilla trekking.

Your accommodation comprises two of Uganda’s stand-outs, with both offering very comfortable rooms, good food, a high standard of amenities and that genuine hospitality that the country is famous for. This short break is also ideal if you are undertaking a traditional safari in East or Southern Africa: simply chat to us about extending your stay with gorilla trekking in Uganda.

DAILY ITINERARY

After a long flight into Entebbe International Airport, near the shores of Africa’s largest lake, you will be in the safe hands of your expert driver-guide who will ferry you to your overnight accommodation.

Hotel No 5 is arguably the city’s top boutique hotel and a short drive from the airport. But, once you are cocooned in your beautiful room, it will feel worlds away. The staff is committed to excellent service and giving you a great first impression of Uganda.

Why we love Hotel No 5:

  • Surrounded by manicured equatorial gardens
  • Quiet attention to detail throughout
  • Sunny swimming pool and tasteful spa
  • Delicious meals at the on-site restaurant

Excitement mounts as you land at Kihihi Airstrip after your light aircraft flight from Entebbe. As always, your experienced guide will be waiting to whisk you to Bwindi Lodge, one of the most remote in the area and your accommodation for three nights with a personal butler to look after you.

The opportunity to trek rare and endangered mountain gorillas is the drawcard here and, when you find them, you will have an hour to appreciate just how relatable they truly are.

Why we love Bwindi Lodge:

  • Visit the Humla Forest Spa
  • Jaw-dropping vistas over Bwindi Forest
  • Regular visits to the lodge grounds by gorillas
  • Having a Gorillini cocktail in the Bwindi Bar
