Outline Itinerary

  1. Day 1: Arrive Entebbe

    You will be met on arrival at Entebbe Airport by our local representative and transferred to the Hotel No. 5, or similar, for one night. Dinner this evening to own account.

  2. Day 2: Entebbe to Bwindi

    After an early breakfast, you will be transferred to Entebbe Airport for the morning flight to Kihihi, in west Uganda.

  3. Day 3: Gorilla-tracking in Bwindi

    The highlight of your tour: a meeting with the gentle giants of Bwindi! It's impossible to give a precise schedule for this day of the itinerary, as it will depend very much on the location of the gorilla families.

  4. Day 4: Contingency day

    Today is a contingency day. Due to the limited nature of the gorilla permits, it is sometimes necessary to split the group so that the gorilla tracking takes place on consecutive days, with permit availability at the time of booking determining the day on which you track the gorillas.

  5. Day 5: Queen Elizabeth National Park

    After breakfast, meet with your safari guide and driver and transfer by road to the southern Ishasha region of Queen Elizabeth National Park, enjoying a game drive en route. Arrive at Ishasha Wilderness Camp, your home for the evening, in time for lunch.

  6. Day 6: Departure

    Transfer to Kihihi Airstrip for your flight to Entebbe and connecting flight home. Depending on your international flight schedule, you will depart Kihihi either early morning or afternoon.
