The plan today is to transfer you to the home and center of Uganda's gorilla tracking experiences, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. If you are setting off from Entebbe or Kampala, this is going to be ±8 hours of interesting maneuvering via mountains, tropical rainforest and bamboo forests.

The visit to the Batwa invariably involves songs and a dance demonstration, and once the music begins you can’t help but notice that they project a genuine pride in themselves. You shall then return to the lodge for lunch and also relax. Enjoy your evening at leisure as you prepare yourselves for the next day’s journey back to Kampala. -
