Day 1: Departing from Kigali you will be welcomed by A Tour Guide from Green Hills Ecotours your safari. Your journey takes you through the beautiful terraced hills to the forested slopes of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. The long journey through the rapidly changing landscape takes you to Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge, which faces the towering trees of the surrounding forest. Depending on when you arrive, there maybe time before dinner to explore the lodge grounds with its clear mountain stream or visit the local village. Overnight at Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge
Day 2: After enjoying an early breakfast, you set off gorilla tracking. Trekking through the steep, densely forested hills and then finally coming across the gorillas camouflaged in the vegetation is an inspiring and privileged moment. Tracking in the Bwindi forest requires stamina and can often take most of the day. Alternatively there are other activities and excursions on offer in and around the national park:
Take a guided walk in the rainforest, home to several endemic bird species, clouds of butterflies and rare plant life. This walk offers excellent photographic opportunities and the knowledgeable guide will provide a great insight into this globally important habitat.
Walk through the local village, and learn about community projects,.
Discover the traditions of the Batwa Pygmies, and learn about the native tribal inhabitants of the forest. The indigenous people of Bwindi forest, though no longer resident in the forest, still practice many of their traditional hunter-gatherer skills. Overnight at Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge
Day 3:Either go gorilla tracking again – additional permits required, subject to availability- or opt for one of the other, gentler but equally rewarding alternatives available (see above). Overnight at Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge
Day 4: Your safari ends with your journey back to Kigali. Before transferring to the airport, there maybe time to tour the city and visit the genocide memorial, a moving testimony to this country’s past that it has courageously overcome.
