3 Days Uganda Gorillas & Batwa Experience

3 Days Uganda Gorillas & Batwa Experience (Tour Description)

The 3 Days Uganda Gorilla Safari will take you for a gorilla tracking adventure in the dense forests of Bwindi as well as a cultural experience with the Batwa people.


On arrival at Entebbe International Airport, there will be a short wait before the transfer flight to Kihihi Airstrip. According to the waiting time, you may have the option of taking a day hotel room in Entebbe. From Kihihi, it is a 45-minute drive through tea plantations and breathtaking rainforest scenery to Buhoma Haven Lodge, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest followed by checking and lunch. Thereafter hike to the Batwa community.

The Batwa “pygmy” tribe are the original inhabitants of the forest. Enjoy the ‘Batwa Experience’ and learn how this unique culture lived and hunted in the forest. You may even have a chance to try their bow and arrow! Return to the lodge for dinner and overnight.

GORILLA TRACKING IN BWINDI FOREST (3 Days Uganda Gorillas & Batwa Experience)

You will be up early on the morning of your Gorilla Tracking for a good breakfast in preparation for the day’s physical activity. You will report for registration at the Uganda Wildlife Authority ranger station by 8 AM. After a briefing by the rangers, your gorilla trek will start. The trek usually takes between three and six hours to a reasonable degree of fitness is required, as well as a strong pair of walking boots or shoes. The rangers will guide you through the village gardens and into the jungle-like forest. They will escort you through the sometimes-thick bush, occasionally hacking the dense undergrowth with a machete as you search to locate the gorillas. The mountain gorillas are under 24-hour monitoring for their own safety, so you’re almost guaranteed to see them. The rangers monitor each gorilla family by keeping in close radio contact. You are allowed exactly one hour with the gorillas before returning to base.
