Day 2 of the 4 Days Safari Uganda Tour: Do morning game drive & transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
After an early morning cup of coffee, embark on the drive through the impressive rolling savannah plains of Queen Elizabeth in search of wild game. The stretch to the Kasenyi plains where the mating ground is found offers you opportunities of encountering a range of wild game including elephants, buffaloes, waterbucks and Kobs along with predators like lions, leopards and jackals. The game drive takes 3 – 4 hours and you embark on the transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park passing through the southern sector of Ishasha. You will arrive in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in the evening for relaxation, dinner and overnight.

Day 3 of the 4 Days Safari Uganda Tour: Undertake gorilla trekking & transfer to Lake Bunyonyi for a sunset boat cruise & relaxation
Following breakfast at your lodge, you will gather at the respective park headquarters in the region where you are going to track for briefing at 8 am. The briefing which is conducted by the park staff details the conduct of gorilla trekking activity and at this moment, the gorilla family to track is also allocated per a group of eight (8) people. The eventual heading to the mist is a remarkable experience that will form part of your lifetime adventure. The forest tends to be covered by mist in the morning and hiking through the forest is an amazing adventure that is worthy of your gorilla permit price. The activity tends to last between 2 – 8 hours inclusive of a one-hour direct encounter with gorillas. Encountering the mountain gorillas in their natural habitat is remarkably wonderful. These frightening and yet peaceful creatures would definitely welcome with fear and the silverback would have to punch a little on his chest to check your fighting status. Your concentration will be on your cameras as you take as many photos as you wish without a flashlight to avoid provoking gorillas to react. Retreat from the activity when your time is used up and then return to the starting point. Upon reaching the starting point, you will head to Lake Bunyonyi driving through the fascinating highlands of Kigezi with remarkable sceneries. Arrive at Lake Bunyonyi in the afternoon and relax a little at your lodge before embarking on a thrilling sunset boat cruise exploring the lake with its 29 islands that have earned it a dub as the lake of a thousand Islands. Retreat from the activity for relaxation, dinner and overnight.
