KAMPALA - BWINDI IMPENETRABLE NATIONAL PARK After breakfast, transfer southwards to Bwindi Impenetrable forest. You will have a stopover at the Equator where you will have an opportunity to stand in 2 hemispheres at the same time and take some photos. Have a stopover for lunch en-route before continuing with your journey to Bwindi. Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park which lies in southwestern Uganda on the edge of the Rift Valley. Its mist covered hillsides are blanketed by one of Uganda’s oldest and most biologically diverse rainforests, dating back over 25,000 years and contain almost 400 species of plants. More famously, this “impenetrable forest” is home to half of the remaining Mountain Gorillas in the world. After lunch, you can either relax at the lodge or take a guided community walk around near lodge. Gorilla Safari Lodge is an owner managed luxurious lodge which is tucked away at the boundary of Bwindi Impenetrable forest. It has breath taking scenery, luxurious ambience that will ensure a comfortable stay and a relaxing atmosphere after a strenuous Gorilla tracking. The lodge is conveniently located few minutes away from the Gorilla Trekking starting point making it unnecessary for early rising. Overnight: Gorilla Safari Lodge.

Gorilla Safari Lodge


After an early breakfast depart to the starting point for a briefing about your gorilla trekking adventure, after which you will be led by experienced gorilla trackers on the slopes of the volcanoes. You will start from the site where the gorillas were encountered the day before and from here the gorilla tracking begins. Although the hike can be physically demanding, the anticipation of the exciting experience ahead is amazing, and the beauty of the gorilla forest and its inhabitants are fascinating. One of Africa’s major highlights is when you encounter these amazing appes. It is a humbling experience to stand just meters from man’s distant cousins as they eat rest, play and bond with their young ones. Follow the mountain gorillas as they range freely in the impenetrable forest, and discover their gorgeous natural habitual and the many species they share it with. You are allowed an hour with the gorillas before finally sloping down back to your lodge. If your trek was relatively short, you may have a guided nature walk around the lodge and the surrounding communities in the evening.

Dear Barbara, I just wanted to thank you for help through the whole time and amazing experience! ​ ​ Your staff was lovely, kind, helpful beyond their job description and my expectations. George was wonderful! He is patient, hard working and very funny, I recommend him highly. It was a good match! Joanne was super helpful trying to get me a Congolese visa...and making me feel comfortable being the only guest. Your staff Wuinnie (especially her), Denis and the Chef, were amazingly accommodating and professional.​ ​ Again, your immediate response to emails and arranging the full itinerary made the somewhat untraditional booking process (you know are westerners are used to everything credit card nowadays) made this process a bit less nerve wrecking and my experience amazing. So thank you for everything! Read more

for one have used crystal safaris 3 times of which the latest was when I went for gorilla tracking in Bwindi. The lady by the name Christine has always been helpful the times I have interacted with her. In June this year, i went for gorilla tracking under crystal safaris with Jona as our guide. My friends and I had a fab time and I would recommend Jona to u and the lodge we slept in was in Bwindi Gorilla safari lodge was in point with those water bottles to keep us warm the beds were on point and jeez the food was delicious (try there onion soup). Anyway I would recommend u trust them with your trip I dont think u will have any issue and I do wish you the best during your safari Read more
