5 Day Gorilla Trekking Safari

This thrilling 5 Day Gorilla Trekking Safari through Uganda’s verdant landscapes commences upon arriving at Entebbe International Airport, where transportation awaits to the lodging offering respite. The subsequent day ushers a scenic drive westward to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, where two nights will be spent within the park’s boundaries. On the third day comes the pulse-quickening opportunity to observe rare mountain gorillas in their natural habitat, as trekking through dense vegetation brings one face-to-face with these elusive great apes.

After witnessing gorillas in the mist, checking out of the accommodations heralds departure for Lake Mburo National Park, with an evening and following morning game drives during the single night’s stay. Finally, on the fifth day comes lunch and transportation back to Entebbe International Airport for the outbound flight or hotel, concluding this adventure threading together wildlife reserves within comfortable lodges such as Mahogany Springs, Buhoma Haven, Gorilla Bluff, Mihingo, Rwakobo Rock, and Mantana Camp. This excursion perfectly suits nature devotees, thrill-seekers, and anyone desiring immersion in Uganda’s scenic beauty and abundant fauna.
