5-day Bwindi Gorilla Trek Fly-in Safari
This 5-day / 4-night fly-in safari from Entebbe, visiting the Mountain Gorillas in Uganda and staying in our luxury lodge, Buhoma, perfectly positioned in Bwindi National Park right in Gorilla country! With arguably the best views of the forest in the area, the lodge is peaceful, and we often have gorillas and other primates visiting us IN the camp. An ideal package for those short on time and keen to experience one of the greatest wildlife encounters on earth.
Bwindi Impenetrable National Park lies in southwestern Uganda on the edge of the Rift Valley. Its mist-covered hillsides are blanketed by one of Uganda’s oldest and most biologically diverse rainforests, which dates back over 25,000 years and contains almost 400 species of plants. More famously, this “impenetrable forest” also protects an estimated 400 mountain gorillas – roughly half of the world’s population, including several habituated groups, which can be tracked. This biologically diverse region also provides shelter to a further 120 mammals, including several primate species such as baboons and chimpanzees, as well as elephants and antelopes. There are around 350 species of birds hosted in this forest, including 23 Albertine Rift endemics.
