This 3 days Uganda Gorilla Habituation Safari in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park will bring you face to face with the massive gorillas in the thick jungles of Bwindi. Mountain gorillas have to undergo habituation before gorilla trekking can happen – this is a process where they get used to seeing humans so that they are not aggressive or run away.
2 Hours Before Flight Time
Your day will start after an early breakfast and you will embark on your gorilla safari southwards to Bwindi impenetrable forest. The journey will offer you highway sights of rural and semi-urban Uganda with several fruit & vegetable markets along the roads, craft and drum makers and a stop at Uganda’s Equator monument where you will cross to the southern hemispheres. After the experience at the Equator, the drive will continue with a stop over in Mbarara for lunch before proceeding to Bwindi with short bathroom stopovers and picture sessions of landscape and other attractions.
Overnight: Lake Mulehe Safari Lodge
Gorilla habituation experience happens in the southern sector of Bwindi impenetrable national park called Rushaga. After breakfast, the driver guide will transfer you to the briefing point where you will receive instructions on how to conduct yourself while in the forest.
The habituation experience gives you more time learning about the life of gorillas in the forest and in total you are allowed to spend 4 hours in the presence of gorillas. The idea is to get gorillas a little bit used to humans in their habitat to allow for gorilla trekking in the future. After this experience, your driver guide will transfer you back to the lodge.
After this exciting experience with gorillas in the wild, you are ready to start journey back to Kampala/Entebbe by road or Air depending on how you traveled. We do hope you had an amazing time learning about these gentle giants and subsequently contributing to their conservation.
