3-day Gorilla Tracking & Lake Bunyonyi relaxation
3-day Gorilla Tracking & Lake Bunyonyi relaxation starts with the pick up by our driver guide and departs for Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Encounter the Gorillas first-hand on your trekking expedition. With strenuous day trekking, it would be ideal to find a better place for relaxation. That place will certainly be Lake Bunyonyi – a place of little birds. You will transfer to Lake Bunyonyi after the gorilla trekking. Enjoy a swim in the Lake before a return to Entebbe/Kampala Uganda
Day 1: Transfer to Bwindi impenetrable national park
You will be picked up by one of our Pamoja tours and travel’ driver/guides and start on your exciting 3-day gorilla tracking tour to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. The drive will take you to southwest Uganda by road, cross the Equator then to Mbarara for Lunch, and through Savannah grasslands to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. The scenic drive through Kigezi Highlands [commonly referred to as “the Switzerland of Uganda”] and banana plantations take you to the gorilla Sanctuary of Bwindi NP. You will arrive in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and will mainly do little but just check in your accommodation, and relax as you prepare for the Bwindi gorilla trekking experience the next day.

Day 2: Gorilla tracking and transfer to Lake Bunyonyi
After an early breakfast and a briefing by a ranger guide, you will enter the gorilla sanctuary for your adventure. The beauty of this rainforest is spectacular! The area offers a dramatic steeply forested landscape and is incredibly dense, but crisscrossed by numerous animal trails allowing access to tourists. The time is taken and the terrain varies with the movements of these great primates.
Once you locate a gorilla group, you will be allowed an hour in their presence. The thrill of spending time observing these gentle and endangered giants is an awesome, exciting experience to be long savoured.
Return to your lodge. Check out for a transfer to Lake Bunyonyi. Lake Bunyonyi is framed by lush, green-terraced hills that reach a height of (2,200 – 2,478m) but it’s the 29 islands of various shapes and sizes scattered across the water that make it most magical — you could admire them all day.

Day 3. Transfer back to Kampala

Else, embark on your return journey to Entebbe Airport or accommodation of your booking. Expect en route stopovers in Mbarara town for lunch and the Uganda Equator line mark in Kayabwe for some memorable photos (if you didn’t stop on the first day) and maybe buy some art pieces of interest.
