During this 4 days Bwindi and Lake Bunyonyi Tour, two of Uganda’s premier safari attractions will be explored. These two places are situated in the southwestern part of the country. Majority of mountain gorillas live in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, distributed among four sectors. The oldest and most well-known of the four is Buhoma sector.
Lake Bunyonyi on the other hand is a tranquil haven where you unwind and relax. Over 29 distinctive islands, each with a special historical significance surround it. You will go swimming, canoeing, take on a cultural trip and hike to the nearby terraced islands. Your comfort is taken into consideration when choosing the lodge, food and transportation. The journey begins and ends from Kampala/Entebbe International Airport.
Day 1: Pickup and Drive to Bwindi Impenetrable national park.
You will go for the real African jungle in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park’s southwest region after being met and briefed by our company’s driver guide. The trip takes between 9 and 10 hours, including lunch and refreshment stop along the way.
With variety of scenery, undulating hills, and bustling trading centers, the road is in good condition. At dusk, arrive in the park and head to the lodge for check-in, dinner and a nap.
Day 2: Gorilla trekking.
An invigorating breakfast is the perfect way to start the day off early. Transfer to the park headquarters afterward, where you can join the other gorilla enthusiasts for a document check and a pre-tour briefing from the ranger guides. Talking about gorilla life, trekking dos and don’ts, and allocation to the gorilla family takes about thirty minutes. You will be in the forest looking for your cousins for the next one to eight hours, depending on how quickly you hike and the route the apes have taken. It’s fortunate that the forest is home to numerous other primates, birds, and unusual flora. Mountain gorillas can only be encountered in the African continent, making this a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. You have one hour to take photos and ask as many questions as you can.
Later you’ll take a lunch break before heading back to the resort for some refreshments. You have the option of spending the evening in the lovely gardens or going to see some cultural performances by the Batwa people. Dinner and a restful sleep are the perfect ways to cap off your day in a cozy cabin.
Day 3: Transfer to Lake Bunyonyi. Afternoon canoe ride.
After a mouthwatering breakfast at the lodge, embark on a one-hour drive to the picturesque Lake Bunyonyi, which is known as the “second Switzerland of Africa.” One of the world’s deepest freshwater lakes, it is encircled by over 29 islands, several of which have amazing history. Additionally, it’s a great location for refueling and bird watching.
When you arrive, immerse yourself in the serene atmosphere as lunch is served. Take a canoe excursion to one of the islands across the lake, such as the punishment island. Girls who were found engaging in sexual practices were sent to the punishment island. Either they would perish or swim to the next island across the lake and survive. Additional evening pursuits include swimming, photography, and more. End this day with dinner and a peaceful nap.
Day 4: Birdwatching and depart to Kampala.
You will awake at dawn to the sounds and sights of birds in their nests. Be led around the birding path by an expert local guide, where you will learn to recognize the approximately 200 different bird species that call this area home by name and identifying their traits.
Breakfast will be served before you leave for your drop-off location, which may be the Entebbe International Airport, Kampala or another location.
