Tour Overview

From Entebbe International airport by the shore of Lake Victoria via a small aircraft to the remote mountains of southern Uganda, famous for its Wildlife and its Mountain Gorillas in particular. Once there, visit the Batwa trail of the Mgahinga forest, the Golden Monkeys of the Virunga Massif, the Queen Elizabeth National park, and of course, The Mountain Gorillas. This Adventure Safari is 7 days and includes domestic flights, comfortable accommodation, and local transport. We are very excited to offer this one-of-a-kind travel plan. It is important to remember that mountain gorillas are an endangered species. The high cost for this particular travel plan is due to the fact that a large amount goes towards the important park fees that protect this species, ensuring that they are not poached or lose their habitat. This trip is truly a chance for you to enrich your world.

Location: Kisoro

Accommodation: Lodge

Accommodation Name: Lake Muhele Safari lodge

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

07:00 am. you will be whisked away on a small aircraft into the remote mountainous regions of southern Uganda. Upon arrival, you will head out for the ‘Batwa’ (pygmies) Cultural Trail. Doing this trail will enable you to interact and learn about the interesting lifestyle of Uganda’s unique pygmies. The Batwa pygmies were originally the traditional inhabitants of Mgahinga Forest that is currently occupied by the National Park. The trail exposes you to the in-depth hidden history of the Batwa pygmies before the year 1990 when they evacuated the forest area that had become protected and conserved as a National park.

The Batwa Trail is unique in a way that it showcases the authentic culture of the original inhabitants of this tropical forest whose lives mainly depend on the natural habitat. While exploring the trail, you will experience the naturally endowed forest through a rare view of the local people. The experience comes along with different unique demonstrations on how the pygmies were used to extract local herbs that were used for healing different diseases, traditional ways of fetching water using locally made bamboo mugs, and the construction of grass huts.

The highly rewarding cultural tour ends with a staged, authentic cultural performance organized by the Batwa community at the gate of the Garama cave which was highly regarded as a ceremonial place for the cultural leaders of the Batwa community. After your cultural excursion, check into your lodge for relaxation as you get ready for your big day tomorrow

Day 3 : Kisoro-Mgahinga | Gorilla Trekking | Lake Mulehe Safari Lodge

Location: Mgahinga National Park

Accommodation: Lodge

Accommodation Name: Mulehe Safari Lodge

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Today is the big day… Prepare yourself for an encounter with Mgahinga’s gentle giant: the rare Mountain Gorilla. For most people, this is the absolute highlight of their tour in Uganda. You will be required to wake up early in the morning then be led to the visitor’s reception center for a briefing about the park. You are allocated guides before heading into the forest in search of Mountain Gorillas.

The Gorillas you will track belong to the habituated family group that can tolerate the presence of humans for a brief period every day. Your trek will be an exciting journey along forested slopes, entwined vines, bushes, and bamboo before you eventually reach the Gorillas’ habitat.

En route, your guide will point out signs of previous Gorilla activity, including dung, nests, and chewed bamboo shoots.

The time taken to track the Gorillas can take as little as 2 hours or more! Once the Gorillas have been located, your group will be allowed a maximum of one hour with them. Coming face-to-face with a Mountain Gorilla is a truly humbling and emotional experience. This is a fantastic and privileged opportunity to get up close and personal with Uganda’s very own ‘Gorillas in the Mist’.

We had a really good time with World Adventure Tours. Or contact person Patrick was so helpful and the organization was perfect. We booked the „Big Five Safari Tour“. What can I say, this trip was an extraordinary experience. We encounter all the big five and so much more. A lifetime Trip, which we will guard in our memory. Our driver Issa was the best. Such a kind and knowledgeable person. He showed us so many beautiful spots in the N.P. (Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorogoro and Lake Manyara) we visited. The lodges were very comfortable. We highly recommend World Adventure Tours. Everything was perfect. Thanks again to Patrick and Issa!!!
