ENTEBBE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
Itinerary

Day 1 ENTEBBE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT | OVERNIGHT AT BOMA ENTEBBE

Welcome to the Pearl of Africa! Arrival at Entebbe Airport where you will be welcomed and transferred to your hotel (5-10 minutes). Overnight at The Boma Guest House (B&B) Note: the airport pick-up will be arranged by Inquisitive Africa.

The Boma Guest House: a welcoming guesthouse is situated on the outskirts of Entebbe and only 5 to 10 minutes from Entebbe Airport. It is a tastefully restored colonial homestead consisting of comfortable bedrooms. Each of them is decorated along African themes and has their own private bathroom. A diners’ bar is set in a landscaped garden with lake views. The main house includes a private dining veranda and living room for overnight guests.

Day 2 BWINDI NATIONAL PARK | OVERNIGHT AT HAVEN LODGE BUHOMA

Entebbe – Bwindi Forest NP (Fly Ebb to Kihihi Approx. 1h 30 Minutes)
After an early breakfast transfer to Entebbe International Airport for a domestic flight to Western Uganda, departing at 07.00 or 07.45 hr. From Kihihi Airstrip (expected arrival at 08.45/09.30 hr) you will be transferred by road in about one hour to the home of the endangered mountain gorillas. Check in at the lodge and enjoy a delicious lunch. In the afternoon you will have the opportunity to relax and prepare yourself for the next day.

Choose to visit the Ride 4 a Woman community, a locally founded women’s empowerment initiative, offers you a truly authentic East African cultural experience. Join us and learn to weave baskets, cook local dishes and watch the women of the community showcase their culture through traditional dance — or even better, you can learn to dance with them.

Or go for an optional (guided) forest walk for a first introduction with Uganda`s unique flora and fauna. Dinner and overnight at Haven Lodge Buhoma (B-L-D) Note: due to the early departure it is possible to request packed breakfast in advance

Day 3BWINDI NATIONAL PARK| OVERNIGHT AT HAVEN LODGE BUHOMA

Gorilla tracking: Arise early today and prepare for the highlight of your safari, an unforgettable encounter with the Gentle Giants!

Following breakfast, transfer to the national park offices where you will be allocated a gorilla family in groups of 8 as well as a gorilla tracking guide. After a pre-tracking briefing by your guide touching on the gorillas generally, your assigned gorilla family as well as appropriate safety precautions, you drive to the trailhead for the start of a thrilling adventure. Expect to walk between 2 and 8 hours in steep and sometimes muddy conditions with rain overhead, which can be tough and require a degree of (average) fitness. However the thrill of coming face to face with a giant Mountain Gorilla silverback completely makes up for the effort!

Please remember to bring your passport for registration, appropriate, water proof hiking boots and a light rain coat. To protect from stinging nettles, we recommend long pants and long sleeved tops. A pair of old gardening gloves can help grabbing onto the vegetation while most hotels/lodges provide a walking stick that comes in very handy especially when hiking downhill.

A small waterproof backpack is an excellent idea to carry a light snack, bottled water as well as protection for your camera.

Upon sighting the gorillas, you spend the allowed one hour with them as they go about their daily life; feeding, moving, playing, raising their young and sometimes wrestling by the juveniles – it is a totally unique and unforgettable experience!
Dinner and overnight at Haven Lodge Buhoma (B-L-D)

Bwindi NP – Entebbe – Departure: Today we will depart the impenetrable forest of Bwindi and with the morning flight to Entebbe International Airport where you will connect to your international flight home. (B)
