Allow the lush vegetation to enchant you as it is wrapped around hills forming the slopes of Kisoro, this
is what will fascinate you as you drive south-west to Bwindi. Explore the volcanos and reach Lake
Mutanda’s calm waters. This lake is surrounded by islands and has a hilly terrain around it with lively
human inhabitants who co-exist with the wild game and birds.
Uganda has 50% of the world’s total population of the rare and endangered mountain gorillas that live
in the Bwindi forest. They are currently 13 gorilla families in Uganda and you get to track one through their
day’s routine. Meet the park ranger at the park headquarters who will be your guide throughout this
encounter. The walk into Bwindi forest will be through well-maintained walkways but dress
appropriately because the forested slopes are often muddy and slippery, have tangled vines depending
on how deep into the forest you have to trek to meet the gorillas. When the family is seen, you will in
silence watch them play, hunt, groom, and sometimes copulate.
Take a swim in the lake or go for a morning bike ride then after breakfast set off for the Uganda-
Rwanda border and be driven through to Kigali International Airport preferably 3½ hours before your
departure flight time. Make sure your travel documents are in order, get a Rwanda visa early.
AA Safaris recommends you take a flight after 4 pm so that you arrive at the Kigali international airport 3
hours or more.
If interested in one or more extra nights in Kigali to extend the tour or for some other reason, do let us
know so that we arrange for you though it will be at an additional fee.
