This 3 days Bwindi independence wilderness Gorilla experience takes you to the jungles of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest to track the mountain gorillas. Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is home to nearly more than half of the remaining mountain gorillas in the world and it is one of the best places to go gorilla trekking in Africa.
Gorilla trekking is one of the top activities while on an African safari.
Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is Africa’s top tourist destination for mountain Gorilla tracking and viewing, with a spectacular vegetation cover, a great view, culture, and tour activities. 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.

After breakfast, we prepare for our gorilla tracking adventure which begins at 8:00 am with a briefing at the information center by the Uganda Wildlife Authority staff. We will then be guided into the jungle to track the shy primates. Gorilla tracking may take 3 to 7 hours but it is well worth the effort. Once you get sight of the gorillas, you have an hour to admire, observe, and take photos of them. It’s advisable to bring along a rain jacket and hiking boots.
At the end of this long and exciting adventure, return to the lodge for a well-deserved shower, dinner, and rest at Gorilla Friends lodge.
After breakfast, transfer back to Kampala making a lunch stop enroute at Mbarara. Proceed to make another stop at the equator in Masaka; see where this imaginary line divides our planet into two equal hemispheres. Snacks, souvenirs, and photographs may be taken here.
Arrive in Kampala later that evening.
