After making your way through customs at the Kigali International Airport, meet your expert guide who will travel with you for the next 4 days. Enjoy the changing landscape as you journey on the winding mountain roads to Bwindi, sometimes referred to as the Switzerland of Africa due to its stunning peaks and craters. Depending on your arrival time to the Bwindi Lodge, you may have time to explore the lodge grounds, or the local village. Transfer time: 5 Hours
NOTE: you must arrive no later than 11 AM on Day 1. If flights arrive after 11 AM you will need to come in a day early.
Enjoy an early breakfast before departing the lodge in search of gorillas. The Bwindi habitat is steep and densely forested and the trek requires stamina, as it can take the better part of a day to come across the gorillas. The first moment you finally see the gorillas camouflaged in the vegetation is an inspiring and privileged moment. You also have the option to participate in any number of activities offered through the lodge.
The day is yours! Choose between another gorilla tracking adventure (fees apply) or any of the optional activities hosted by the Bwindi Lodge.
Your journey comes to an end as you return to Kigali. Depending on your international flight times you may have the opportunity for a city tour, or a visit to the Genocide Memorial. Return to your hotel, or transfer to the airport in time for your flight home, or onward on your journey….
Note: Flights must depart after 4 PM. Earlier flight times will require an overnight in Kigali.
