 Day 5: Kampala- Entebbe- Bwindi

After breakfast, you will be transferred to Entebbe airport for your domestic flight to Bwindi Impenetrable Park. Bwindi Impenetrable forest is home to roughly half of the world’s endangered mountain gorillas, about 330 individuals, and one of the safest places to track these magnificent giants. The park has 90 mammal species, including 11 primates, of which the black-and-white colobus, with its lovely flowing white tail is prominent. The forest birding ranks extremely high with 23 highly localized Albertine Rift endemics and in 2012 Bwindi was declared a favorite birding habitant in Africa by ornithologists.

 In the afternoon, you will go for a village walk to meet and learn more about the local community living around the park and witness how gorilla tourism in this area boosted by gorilla tracking is benefiting them. The 3 hour walk will introduce you to the customs and practices of the local Batwa and Bakiga people. Some of the places you will visit include a local handicraft shop that is run by the women in the community. The women design and produce a wide variety of beautiful traditional crafts such as mats, wood carvings, dyed clothes, weavings and so much more. They get to earn a little more revenue from the sales of their works to meet their living costs and cater for their families. The walk then leads you through the kempt tea plantations which thrive on the rich fertile volcanic soils of the Albertine rift valley. You will learn more about the cultivation, processing and distribution of tea in this part of the country. The walk then leads you through the small food gardens and open fields where boys herd the beautiful long horned Ankole cattle. The next stop will be at a traditional medicinal healer. About 70% of people living in the rural areas still depend on traditional remedies as a way of treating their ailments or may use it in concurrently with modern medicine. The healer not only provides medicines to those who are sick, but also contributes to the survival of the various shrubs, herbs and plants by educating the local people about the benefits of such species. He is known to have a cure for anything from stomach ache to male impotency. Other stops and activities include the local primary school, a banana brewing process and finally conclude with dancing performances with Batwa (pygmy) community.

Day 6: Bwindi Impenetrable Park

Today, you will have the opportunity to trek within meters of one of the world’s last few hundred mountain gorillas is arguably the most exciting wildlife encounter in Africa.

After an early breakfast you will make it to the Rainforest. Tracking these fascinating creatures through the misty Ugandan forests requires patience and stamina, not to mention adventurous and hopeful hours spent walking in the mud and the wet rainforest floor. But the payoff is indescribable: There is no way to express the thrill of coming upon a family of gorillas going about their daily activities in the undergrowth. Witnessing their way of life and how alike they are to humans is overwhelming. Return to the lodge and spend the rest of the day at leisure.
