Red Chilli 3 Days Gorilla Trekking Exclusive Safari Tour, Uganda

On this tour you have the opportunity to experience Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.

Tour Details

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest with an ancient rainforest dating back more than 25,000 years is the place to go Gorilla trekking with approximately 320 gorillas, roughly half of the world population. In addition to gorillas, Bwindi offers 346 bird species and more than 200 butterfly species, more than 300 species of trees, ten of which are only found in this area in the whole of Uganda!

Bwindi actually means Impenetrable in the Runyakitara language and has been given this name due to the enormous numbers of baboo growing between the hardwood trees, making direct access into the forest almost impossible. Bwindi Impenetrable Forest has been recognized as a World Heritage Site for its biological significance.

09:30 Equator visit – a great opportunity to have your photo taken in both hemispheres! Short snack/coffee & toilet break.

Lunch will be a packed lunch from the Community Camp, enjoyed in the forest. After your gorilla trekking, you will return to Rushaga Gorilla Camp for dinner and another night.

Optional Extra: If your gorilla trekking experience is short enough, it may be possible to add on a waterfall hike – this may take anything from 2 to 5 hours depending on how much you stop along the way. Take a plunge into the bottom of the icy waterfall if you are brave enough! (Additional Cost: $30 per person).
