4 Days Gorilla Tour And Lake Mburo Safari

A great combination of a Gorilla Tour and Lake Mburo safari extension. Its a brilliant idea to have a light game drive and an easy sunset boat ride as an excellent extension for your gorilla trekking in Uganda

Day 1: Kampala / Lake Mburo National park
Have breakfast to drive off along Masaka road to Lake Mburo National park. Lake Mburo is one of the smallest Savannah parks with plenty of antelopes, hyenas, Giraffes, zebras, and many bird species along the shores of Lake Mburo. You will reach in the afternoon to have lunch and then proceed for a boat ride on Lake Mburo. This ride will reward you with view of animals like Hippos and crocodiles, as well as birds at the shores. Dinner and overnight at Arcadia Cottages / Rwonyo camp.

Day 2: Lake Mburo / Bwindi Impenetrable Forest
After a cup of tea or coffee, go for an early game drive (3-4 hours) to have a closer look at animals such as hyenas, Giraffes, zebras and antelopes. Return to your lodge for full breakfast and then later you will proceed to Bwindi Impenetrable national Park. It is most famous for mountain gorillas although the park is also a habitat for other animals and plenty of birds. You will reach Bwindi in the evening. Dinner and overnight at Gorilla resort / Buhoma community Bandas.

Day 3: Gorilla tracking in Bwindi forest
Wake up and prepare for the remarkable experience. You will have breakfast to transfer to the park headquarters for briefing before setting off to the forest in search for gorillas. The time you will take searching these humble apes is unpredictable however it ranges between 1-9 hours depending on their movement. The activity requires you to go through steep rocks climbing up and down making it tiresome, however the thrill of encountering these giant primates erases the poor memories you went through in trying to find them. Dinner and over night at Gorilla Resort / Buhoma homestead.

Day 4 :Departure
In the morning you  will drive back to Kampala to reach in the evening.
