Venture on a 'bucket list' item and get close to the spectacular gorillas in an emotional and awe-inspiring experience. On arrival in Entebbe, spend the night at the stylish No. 5 Boutique Hotel and enjoy an intimate stay in a tranquil setting before embarking on the two day gorilla tracking. The hotel boasts a beautiful garden, swimming pool area, spa and gym.

A scenic internal flight to the south-west transports guests to the Impenetrable Forest, for the chance to see the majestic Mountain Gorilla. Spend three nights at the high-end Buhoma Lodge, which offers spectacular views of the forest. It is one of the two lodges located within the National Park. After a hard day tracking gorillas, guests can relax around the open fireside, or enjoy a few drinks at the bar. The lodge also has a spa treatment room and restaurant serving freshly prepared meals from local produce.

Guests will be guided through the forest on your gorilla tracking by a Uganda Wildlife Authority guide. Once you have found the gorillas, you will be with them for an hour (to ensure the wild animals are not over exposed to human presence), but an hour you will remember for the rest of your life.

The expedition includes accommodation, meals, permits, internal flights and transfers, as well as insurance. Embark on an adventure of a lifetime and come face-to-face with the majestic Mountain Gorillas.
