On the first day of this adventure, our guide will pick you up from your hotel or place of residence in Kampala. He will welcome you on board and enthusiastically usher you in to our adventurous world of safaris. From Kampala he will transfer you to Entebbe international airport to catch up with a scheduled flight to Pakuba airstrip. You will use the flight which leaves Entebbe at 8:30hrs and reaches Pakuba at 10:10hrs. On arrival at Pakuba, you will be met by a guide from Equatorial wild safaris who will transfer you to your place of accommodation for relaxation and lunch. After lunch, you will take a boat trip to the bottom of the Murchison falls. These falls are very beautiful and intimidating. With a large force, they hail from above and thrust deeply in to the water below causing a rapid flow of water. At the bottom of the falls, those who believe in their level of fitness can take a hike to the top of the falls. For those who will take a leap of faith and go for the hike, they will get to see the magnificent view from the top of the falls. The scene ids truly breath-taking and quite out of the world. After, find a car waiting for you on the other side for transfer to your lodge. Those that will not take on the hike will return by boat. The trail is well maintained and has become a popular inclusion to the visitor’s attractions in Murchison Falls National Park
Begin your day with a cup of African coffee and later on head out for an early morning game drive. Return to the lodge for breakfast and lunch. After lunch you will be dropped off at Pakuba strip by a guide from Equatorial wild safaris for transfer by air to Kihihi airstrip. On arrival at Kihihi airstrip, you will be met by a guide from Equatorial wild safaris who will transfer you to your lodge for dinner and overnight.
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 gorillasin the world today.
After breakfast, you will board your flight back to Entebbe, you will us the morning that flight leaves Kihihi at 10:55hrs and reaches Entebbe at 11:55hrs. At Entebbe a representative from Equatorial wild safaris will transfer you to your next destination.
