Day 1: Airport pick-up and transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

When you arrive at Kigali International Airport, an Igeno Safaris guide/driver and be transferred to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, which is located in southwestern Uganda near the border with Rwanda. Bwindi plays host to about 53 per cent of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas, which are currently numbering about 1,000 individuals, according to a 2018 gorilla census. Upon arrival later in the evening, you will check into your lodge for dinner and overnight. Expect sounds of birds and echoes of other forest residents to put you to sleep peacefully!

Accommodation options: Gorilla Resort Lodge | Silverback Lodge |Buhoma Lodge | Gorilla Safari Lodge | Clouds Lodge | Mahogany Springs Lodge | Gorilla Forest Camp

Day 2: Gorilla trekking

In the morning after a quick, light breakfast, you will head out to the park headquarters for a briefing by the ranger guide. After equipping you with the dos and don’ts of gorilla trekking, the ranger will divide you and other trekkers into 13 groups, for there are 13 habituated gorilla families in Bwindi.

Gorilla trekking is a physically demanding activity because of the long hours it can take; depending on how far the gorillas will have moved, the trek could take anywhere between one and eight hours. However, from the onset, you will see various primates, coloured butterflies, birds and a variety of plant species.

Even though trekking can be strenuous, it will be worth it when you finally meet the gorillas! It’s gratifying and memorable to come into contact with these peaceful, gigantic primates.

According to park rules, you will be allowed to watch the gorillas at a five-metre distance as the old ones feed and the juveniles play – and for not more than one hour.

After gorilla trekking, you will head back to the lodge for relaxation as you wait for the afternoon village walk to the Batwa community – former inhabitants of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest before it was gazetted – and get an opportunity to learn about their way of life. You will visit the community school, the women’s crafts shop, as well as their traditional healer. Men, women and children will gladly entertain you with traditional songs and dances before you return to the lodge to rest, dine and slumber.

Gorilla trekking time: 1-8 hours
Accommodation options: Gorilla Resort Lodge | Silverback Lodge |Buhoma Lodge | Gorilla Safari Lodge | Clouds Lodge | Mahogany Springs Lodge | Gorilla Forest Camp

Day 3: Kigali City tour & departure

After breakfast, you will be driven back to Kigali, and, depending on your departure flight schedule, you can go on a tour of Rwanda’s capital city. Options include the Nyamirambo neighbourhood, which will introduce you to Rwanda’s contemporary urban culture, as well as the Kigali Genocide Memorial Centre, the final resting place of more than 250,000 victims of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi.

When you are done with Kigali, our driver/guide will take you to Kigali International Airport to catch your flight back home.
