Our driver will pick you from your hotel or place of residence in Kampala for transfer to Entebbe International airport to catch up with a scheduled flight to Kihihi in Bwindi. You will use a morning flight from Entebbe which leaves at 8:30hrs and reaches Kihihi at 10:35hrs. This is a very interesting journey which you will experience through a very small and secure aircraft. You will fly over vast green landscapes and watch the world shrink as you fly high above it. On arrival at Kihihi, you will be met by a guide from Equatorial wild safaris who will transfer you to your place of accommodation for checking in and lunch. After lunch, you will go for a Batwa community experience. Later on return to your lodge rest.
Arise by the morning and enjoy a well prepared breakfast that will sooth your morning taste buds. As the day beckons to you in anticipation, we expect you to embrace the events ahead with an adventurous spirit. Availed with lunch, you will be expected to report to the park headquarters before 8am for registration and general briefing. The guides will equip you with knowledge and skills that will guide you throughout the day. They will then take you through the bush, trekking through thick vegetation and walking on forest foot paths, pushing your way through the thick creepers and undergrowth to track the gorillas. (This trek can take from half an hour to 5 hours-a reasonable degree of fitness is required as well as a sturdy pair of walking shoes). The journey could be exhausting but if you savour the moments and enjoy every little bit of adventure and adrenaline experience, time will pass by so fast and you will not know how it did. Together with your guides, you will sit in the forest among the gorillas, listening to them grumble to each other and marvel at sheer size of the dominant male; the silverback. The experience is really amazing plus it is an extraordinary feeling sitting in the dense rainforest knowing you are with a few of the last remaining mountain gorillas in the world today.
Today, after breakfast, you will board your morning flight back to Entebbe. The morning flight leaves Kihihi at 10:55hrs and will reach Entebbe international airport at 11:55hrs. At Entebbe, a representative from Equatorial Wild Safaris will transfer you to your next destination.
