At a Glance

Home to perhaps the world’s greatest natural treasure — half of the world’s last remaining mountain gorilla population – this once-in-a-lifetime experience takes you into the forests of Bwindi to spend a privileged hour in the company of a family of critically endangered mountain gorillas. The mist-covered hillsides of the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park are blanketed by one of Uganda’s oldest and most biologically diverse rainforests and encompass one of the last remaining habitats of the highly endangered mountain gorilla. The mountainous and heavily forested terrain makes for a challenging hike to see these incredible creatures, but it is well worth the effort. Starting Price US$ 2,400*

Afternoon relaxation at the lodge. The 331 square-kilometer (128 square-mile) Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is comprised of both montane and lowland forest. The forest is one of the richest ecosystems in Africa, with some 120 species of mammals, 348 species of birds, 220 species of butterflies, and over 27 species of reptiles and amphibians. Bwindi is amongst the most diverse forests in East Africa, with more than 1,000 flowering plant species including 163 species of trees and 104 species of ferns.

  • Day 3: Bwindi Impenetrable Forest – Gorilla Tracking

    Today is the big day… Prepare yourself for an encounter with one of Bwindi’s gentle giants: the rare Mountain Gorilla. For most people this is the absolute highlight of their tour in Uganda. The Gorillas you will track belong to one of nine habituated family groups who can tolerate the presence of humans for a brief period every day.
    Once the Gorillas have been located, your group will be allowed a maximum of one hour with them. Coming face-to-face with a Mountain Gorilla is a truly humbling and emotional experience. This is a fantastic and privileged opportunity to get up close and personal with Uganda’s very own ‘Gorillas in the Mist’.
