The 3 Days Gorilla Trekking safari Uganda is a magical trip into the isolated jungles of East Africa, promising you an experience like no other. This 3 days Gorilla Trekking safari Uganda is a budget friendly safari that is designed to allow every traveler have a chance at spending time with the endangered mountain gorillas in Uganda.
Sitting among a family of wild mountain gorillas in the deep misty jungle of Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is utterly magical, nothing can ever be compared to such an experience – their sheer beauty, brawn and soulful brown eyes, their astonishingly human-like expressions or their extraordinarily gentle demeanor. One hour with these gentle creatures – 60 minutes, is all it takes to change your whole life’s experience.
The typical 3 days gorilla tracking safari is only possible for those that are already in Uganda or planning for morning arrival so you can transfer direct to Bwindi Impenetrable forest. Otherwise, you will need 1 extra day which makes it 4 days. If you’re a luxury traveler, don’t bounce off yet, this Gorilla Trekking safari in Uganda can be tailored to suite your travel style too.
Note: Depending on availability of gorilla permits at the time of confirmation, you may trek gorillas in Buhoma, Ruhija, Rushaga or Nkuringo.

Day 1: Kampala to Bwindi National Park
Depart Entebbe/Kampala for your 3 days Gorilla Tracking safari. An 8-9hrs road transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park located in South western Uganda. Quite a long drive but worth it because you get to enjoy the countryside scenery, some of the most beautiful nature’s images all the way to the Virunga massive. Keep your cameras near you and our driver will definitely stop if you need him to so that you cam capture that beautiful moment.
You will have an en route stopover at the Equator crossing for photographic and simple experiment before continuing to Mbarara town for Lunch. After lunch, you will embark on your scenic drive to Bwindi National Park for dinner and overnight.
Day 2: Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi National Park
After an early morning breakfast, you will drive to the Park headquarters for registration and joining others for a gorilla trekking briefing about the dos and the don’ts during your Gorilla Trekking experience. Once this is done, you will trek through thick creepers and undergrowth with your guides to find the Gorillas, which can take you from half an hour to three quarters of the day.
The steeply forested landscape is incredibly dense but crisscrossed by numerous animal trails allowing access to tourists. On your trek, you are likely to spot other primates, birds and rare tree species. After finding the gorillas, you will be allowed to spend one hour with them before trekking back to the Park headquarters.
This is indeed an extraordinary feeling being with these beautiful yet endangered Creatures. You will be awarded a certificate for participating in gorilla trekking and thus contributing to the conservation of mountain gorillas.
Day 3: Bwindi to Kampala/Entebbe
After your breakfast, you will be driven to Kampala or Entebbe for your post experience or you may choose to fly out of Uganda the same day. You will use the same route as when you came, enabling you to enjoy that countryside air one more time.
