Your journey begins with a flight to Kihihi Airstrip, minimizing travel time.

Day 1: Entebbe - Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
Embarking on a flight from Entebbe to Kihihi Airstrip, a mere 45-minute drive separates you from the enchanting Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.
The journey to Buhoma is a scenic passage through flourishing tea plantations and meticulously terraced farms, offering picturesque vistas along the way. Arriving in Buhoma, you’ll have the afternoon to engage in a captivating cultural encounter. This will entail an interaction with the local Batwa tribe – a community of pygmy people intricately intertwined with the forest’s heritage.
As the day winds down, you’ll find yourself in close proximity to the park, ensuring you’re poised for a restful night in preparation for the adventures that await.
Day 2: Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
The pinnacle of your journey awaits, an experience set to remain etched in your memory: the rare and extraordinary chance to venture into the mountain rainforest and encounter the legendary ‘gorillas in the mist’.
Commencing with an early breakfast, your day’s commencement involves a pre-trek briefing. Subsequently, you’ll be allocated to a group and embark on a foot journey into the forest. The duration of your trek is unpredictable and can vary due to the gorillas’ whereabouts and prevailing weather conditions. Your time within the park could range from a single hour to six or even more.
However, regardless of the hike’s duration, the culmination remains equally magical: an enchanting hour spent observing these magnificent creatures as they engage in relaxation, play, and nourishment within the heart of the jungle.
Upon completing your hike, a return to your lodge beckons, where dinner and well-deserved rest await. For those seeking additional activities, a guided waterfall hike or a village tour can be arranged upon request, allowing you to further immerse yourself in the local surroundings.
