This is a 4 day safari which starts and finishes in Kampala. This safari takes you to Bwindi Impenetrable for gorilla trekking. Seeing some of the last remaining 700 mountain gorillas in the world is a fantastic experience. Bwindi has ten habituated families and the gorillas there live in thicker tropical rain forests. After the trek, you can also go for nature walks to see birds, monkeys and orchids.
