A Bamboo Ecotours representative will pick you up in Kigali in the morning and start driving northwards towards Uganda.

Here you will process the Uganda entry visa and proceed directly to Bwindi forest for overnight. The entire journey from Kigali to Bwindi should take about 4 – 5hrs.

Day 2Gorilla trekking in Bwindi Forest

You will take breakfast early in the morning and then head to the Bwindi forest gate to prepare for the gorilla trek. The Uganda Wildlife Authority guide will orient you on what to expect during the trek. The trek can take few to many hours depending on the exact location where the gorillas are on that day. This will be an adventure of a lifetime!

Day 3Transfer to Lake Bnyonyi

Transfer from Rushaga, Bwindi in the morning to Lake Bunyonyi in the nearby Kabale district. Here where you will have options to enjoy canoeing, bird watching, and local cultures in the afternoon. Lake Bunyonyi is about 2 hours drive from Bwindi. Spend the afternoon enjoying the cold breeze and breathtaking taking views at the lake.

Day 4Transfer from Lake Bunyonyi to Queen Elizabeth Park

In the late morning we will commence the journey from Lake Bunyonyi to Queen Elizabeth national park. The drive should take 6 – 7 hours. The drive goes through the amazing scenery of the Kigezi highlands via the town of Kabale. You will then head westwards via Ishaka and Bushenyi towns and descend into the western rift valley as you approach the Queen Elizabeth national park plains.

Day 5Kasenyi Plains game drive in the morning and Kazinga Channel boat cruise

You will start the day with early morning breakfast at the lodge. Afterwards we proceed to the famed Kasenyi plains of Queen Elizabeth National Park to spot various species of wild animals. Kasenyi plains dwell in the vast savannahs of the Albertine rift in Queen Elizabeth National Park. It will be a morning full of adventure! Expect to encounter lions, herds of buffalos, elephants, Uganda kobs, topi, and bushbucks. While it is not guaranteed to spot the “Big Five” in the park, on a luck day you may site leopards to make it the “Big Four”. We will return to the lodge for lunch.
