Kristina's African Safaris
UGS3 Gorilla Tracking in Bwindi
A 4 day safari which starts
and finishes in Kampala. This safari can also be done on a private basis. [One
gorilla permit is included in the cost.]
Seeing some of the last
remaining 700 mountain gorillas in the world is a fantastic experience. This
safari takes you tracking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Bwindi has four
habituated families and the gorillas there live in thicker tropical forest and
tracking is more challenging as the hillsides are steeper. You can also go for
nature walks to see birds, monkeys and orchids.
On safari clients stay 1
night at Mantana Mburo Camp and 2 nights at Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge.
