6 Days-Gorillas and Safari on a Budget

A truly amazing little tour that allows you to track gorillas and experience a big game safari for a not so big price. On this tour, we have tried to make these once in a lifetime wildlife encounters affordable, whilst still maintaining quality!

DAY 1

Arrive in Entebbe

Upon arrival at Entebbe International Airport You will be met by your guide, briefed about your upcoming journey and transferred to your lodge. We feel it's best to stay in Entebbe after your flight, the last thing you want to do after a long flight is go on another long car journey. If you arrive early there are many excursions available, and great places to eat. Ask your regional expert for more information. Read more

DAY 4

Game Drive and Bwindi

Grab a packed lunch from your lodge and spend the day winding south through Queen, where you will get the chance to see the tree climbing lions that have made this national park so famous. Your eventual destination is Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, you should arrive in the evening just in time to take in the breath-taking views of the mountains and the dense forest. Read more

Bwindi View Banda's
DAY 5

Gorilla Tracking

After an early breakfast, you will set off towards what will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of your safari, the unforgettable experience that is Mountain Gorilla tracking. After trekking through the dense forest to where the Gorillas were found the day before, you begin your tracking, searching for the largest primate in the world. Upon sighting them, you will stay with them for one hour as they eat, rest and bond with their young. To reach them it can take anywhere between 30 mins to 4 hours, so be prepared for a long trek through the humid rain-forest. Afterwards you will spend the afternoon relaxing and taking in your beautiful surroundings. Read more

Bwindi View Bandas
DAY 6

Back to Entebbe

After your breakfast in Bwindi, you will transfer back up to Entebbe for your evening flight home, stopping on the way for lunch, and at the equator for the almost compulsory photo with the sign.

East African Discovery organised an excellent trip away for the 5 of us, they were able to sort everything we wanted for the duration of the holiday. We had a superb trip away and would recommend booking with them. Our trip was tailor made from the start, with communication over email being a stress-free experience. Hopefully we will use you again, to return to the excellent gorilla trek. Thanks East African Discovery. Read more

Monique , France

I would like to congratulate you for the very good trip you organized for the five of us. The driver, Herbert, was excellent, careful and full of attention, very punctual and always ready to satisfy us. He was always the first one to see the animals. We have been very lucky - leopard (2) - a female lion with 3 little ones - 6 sleepy lions - lions in the trees, gorillas after a walk of only 20 minutes, elephants, hippos etc.... The lodges were all excellent and full of charm; we enjoyed them very much. I shall not fail to recommend your company. Read more

Jocelyn , Canada

We had a 6-day safari in Uganda arranged by Ben Tinsley at East African Discovery in late November 2016. It exceeded all expectations for value for money, accommodation, variety of scenery and sights, and quality of the driver/guide. We have travelled extensively including in other parts of East Africa. Uganda is truly special. We appreciated that the company is locally owned, with excellent local intelligence and experience in the tourism and game tracking fields in Uganda. We liked that the company is small, offering bespoke safaris rather than off-the-shelf itineraries. Ben responded to all queries and requests promptly during the planning stage and no question was too silly to ask. Our driver/guide was prompt, organised, informative, and friendly - he had grown up in a part of the country that we visited so his local knowledge was particularly good. The chimpanzee and gorilla tracking were experiences of a lifetime. Everything went off without a hitch. The pricing of EAD was considerably better than that offered for similar safaris by the larger outfits. We would recommend EAD without reservation. Read more
