Day 1
Fly overnight to Entebbe via your transiting destination.
Day 2
Arriving in Entebbe, you will be met and transferred to your hotel. Relax for the afternoon or perhaps glide across Lake Victoria to the Mabamba Swamps for a chance to spot Shoebills and other birdlife.
Day 3
Depart after breakfast for the airport and fly on to Kisoro, gateway to the Bwindi Inpentrable Forest. Choose to walk or drive to Lake Mutanda, which you can cross by canoe transfer, or simply drive straight to the lodge - it's your choice! Settle in and relax on arrival, enjoying the pristine rainforest views.
Day 4
Gorilla trek day! You will be transferred to the park headquarters for a briefing before setting off accompanied by your guides and porters for your walk. Spend up to an hour with the gorilla family before heading back to the lodge.
Day 5
Time for a second gorilla trek, or alternatively head out on forest walks, community visits or bird watching trails.
Day 6
After an early breakfast you will be transferred back to Kisoro to fly onwards to Entebbe. Fly from here back to the UK - there are a variety of airlines to choose from.

This it the perfect trip for those short of time and wanting to get up close to the gorillas in their natural environment. This itinerary visits Uganda’s Bwindi Inpenetrable Forest where you can head out on a thrilling (and perhaps strenuous) gorilla trek, culminating with up to an hour spent observing a gorilla family as they feed, play and interact together. Choose whether to include one or two treks, and spend the remaining time in the forest exploring the wider area – perhaps canoeing on nearby Lake Mutanda on the way to the lodge, or on forest walks to the Nombe Pocket Forest to see the many bird species which thrive in the area. Other highlights include a chance to encounter the local Batwa tribes, with a fascinating insight into their nomadic hunter-gatherer heritage.
