Day by day itinerary:


Day 1: Fly-in from Entebbe to Kihihi & transfer to Bwindi

Flight from Entebbe airport to Kihihi and then our driver picks you from the airstrip for the beautiful journey to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Along the way to the lodge we make brief stops for scenery to take in the beauty of this area, as the landscape changes from villages and cultivated hills on to jungle covered mountains.

Overnight in Gorilla Mist Camp


Day 2: Gorilla trekking day

Start the day with early breakfast before setting off for the highlight of Gorilla trekking. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is the home to the forest giants that are cousins to human beings, the mountain gorillas. Together with a specialized guide you head out into the jungle for an unforgettable experience. The trek takes you through beautiful nature and you finally get to spend one hour in the area where the gorillas are. Besides the gorillas this Impenetrable forest is full of birds, butterflies and plant species plus forest hog, forest elephants, statungas and dikers. After the trekking your guide takes you down from the mountains to the lodge just at the edge of the Ishasha part of Queen Elizabeth NP.

Overnight in Topi Lodge


Day 3: Search for tree-climbing lions in Ishasha during morning and evening game-drives

The southern Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park is known for its tree-climbing lions. In the early morning you head out on to the savannah to search the big fig-trees for lions as well as hopefully see topis, elephants and buffaloes. After the morning game-drive we head back to the lodge for lunch and some relaxation to later in the afternoon go back to the park to hopefully get some more good sightings. Overnight in Topi Lodge


Day 4: Fly-out to Entebbe

After breakfast we make the journey to the airfield and then you catch the flight to Entebbe as you conclude your fly-in gorilla and lions adventure in Uganda.
