7 Days Bwindi Gorilla Trekking & Zanzibar Beach Holiday

This 7-day journey covers the most memorable experiences in Uganda and Zanzibar, East Africa. This is a remarkable combination of tropical rainforest and beach experiences. Start your expedition in Uganda with a visit to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, a spectacular conservation area where half of the world’s endangered mountain gorillas all live. After, cross to Zanzibar to soak yourself into the white sand beaches. This spectacular archipelago also features tropical islands, and it is popular not only its unique culture and history, but also stands out as the leading spice producer.

Gorilla trekking is with no doubt every nature lover’s dream adventure on an African safari and interestingly, this package has you covered on a visit to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Located in Southwestern Uganda, Bwindi was founded in 1991 and it stands out as one of the Africa’s biodiverse destinations. Its creation in 1991 was primarily to shelter the endangered mountain gorillas plus other floral and faunal species.

Of the world’s 1063 mountain gorillas, Bwindi is a home to over 459 and over 20 gorilla families have undergone full habituation. Tracking any of the park’s gorilla groups is possible from any of the 4 regions; Nkuringo, Buhoma, Rushaga and Ruhija sectors.

Safari details

Day 1: Trip to mountain gorilla destination- Bwindi N/Park

Full day dedicated for you to travel from Entebbe/Kampala to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park located in Southwestern Uganda. Drive through the main districts/cities of Masaka-Mbarara to Kabale town in a 4×4 tourist car. A journey to Bwindi covers from 8 to 9 hours’ drive, but en-route, there is a chance to get out of the vehicle to stretch a little at Equator crossing where you will also take pictures or carryout a water experiment to determine the two hemispheres of the earth (The Northern & Southern).

Continue with a short drive to Igongo or a nearby hotel around Mbarara for lunch, then proceed with a drive to Southwestern Uganda, a region known for its breathtaking landscape. Check in at the comfortable place of stay in or nearby Bwindi for a relaxed evening, dinner and overnight stay.

Day 2: Enjoy the best of Bwindi gorilla tracking

Rise up early and have a hot cup of tea/coffee, after, expect to join the rest of trekkers for briefing about Bwindi mountain gorilla trekking guidelines at the park offices. The park official will carryout this exercise, and also allocate to you an experienced park guide, gorilla families. At 8:00a.m, the actual walk starts through the jungles with park guide and being a long day, we recommend that you come with a bottled water, packed lunch or some high energy snacks.

Your fitness level matters a lot, but a search for mountain gorillas often lasts for 2-6 hours.
