Day 2

Chimpanzee Tracking and drive to Bwindi Impenetrable National Forest

This morning we start off for another fascinating experience, the chimpanzee of which about 70 animals are habituated. First we hear the calls of the animals and possibly the booming beating on tree trunks before we have to leave again, but we will hopefully remember many beautiful moments. We then drive to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, where we stay overnight inside the park. On the way we already enjoy the beautiful mountain landscapes of Southwestern Uganda. Accommodation: Bakiga Lodge. Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Drinks: Water while driving, other drinks not included

Day 3

Gorilla Tracking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

Today we experience the absolute highlight of the trip when we meet the mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Together with Rangers we search for one of seven habituated gorilla families. Depending on their location this search may take more or less time. But no matter how long it takes, it's worth the effort. We can see the immense power of these animals, but also the calm and serenity of the adult animals as the youngsters playfully chase through the group. We have an hour to take pictures and record as many beautiful memories as possible. Back from this impressive experience we make our way to Lake Bunyonyi, one of the most beautiful lakes in Uganda. Accommodation: Bunyonyi overland Resort. Meals: breakfast, lunch or lunchbox and dinner Drinks: water while driving, other drinks not included
