Venture Uganda - Fly In Gorilla and Wildlife Safari

This safari is packed full of wonderful experiences. You’ll enjoy 3 domestic flights at altitudes low enough to appreciate the stunning countryside and game-filled national parks below. You will visit beautiful Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and spend time with the mountain gorillas in their forest home. Experience tribal culture with the Batwa tribe who are known as the ‘forest-keeper’ pygmies. Relax beside the beautiful Lake Mutanda before going to experience game viewing in Queen Elizabeth National Park.

This is an amazing holiday which could easily be added to another short beach, hiking or adventure holiday or even a visit to another East African country.

The Real World Conservation Trust works with leading conservation organisations to raise awareness as well as raising funds for specific projects through our Explorers Against Extinction campaign. You can find out more about our exciting current projects on our Conservation pages including how we raised almost £60k for African Parks and Flora and Fauna International. Previous partners have included Save the Elephants, Save the Rhino, The Sheldrick Trust, Rhino Conservation Botswana and Animals saving Animals. On behalf of every client travelling, Real Africa makes a donation to the Trust. Our aim is to raise awareness about the plight of endangered species and to promote sustainable, socially responsible travel which benefits the wildlife and communities you choose to visit. For example, the money from your gorilla trekking permit goes straight back into the national park and preserving the habitat as well as anti-poaching efforts and education programmes.

Safari Itinerary

DAY 1

Entebbe
Upon arrival at Entebbe International Airport, you will be met by our representative who will take you to your hotel, a short drive away. Relax at the hotel and have dinner on the roof top terrace in the evening. The hotel has a lovely garden and swimming pool as well as great views across the lake.

DAY 2 - 4

Kisoro and Gorilla Tracking in Bwindi
The hotel staff will drop you back at the airport for your early morning flight to Kisoro. On arrival you will be met by lodge staff and taken straight to the starting point for the Batwa Trail. Walk for 5 to 6 hours on the gentle mountain slopes with a Batwa guide who will show you how the ‘forest keepers’ lived as hunter-gatherers before the forest was gazetted as a protected area. This activity helps to fund the Batwa’s life outside the forest. The following day is one of the trip's main highlights - Gorilla tracking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park! After a short briefing, your guides will take you into the forest in search of the gorillas. Once you find them, which can take a few hours, you will spend a magical hour watching them as they eat, play, groom and even snooze or you can follow them as they move through the forest. Later, you will travel to Lake Mutanda for a well-earned rest. On your final day here you will enjoy a boat ride on Lake Mutanda in a traditional dug-out canoe visiting sites of interest around this beautiful, tranquil lake whilst listening to local historical and cultural tales. Spend the afternoon relaxing as you admire the views, take a walk around this tranquil spot or enjoy some bird watching or community activities.

DAY 5 - 6

Queen Elizabeth National Park
Fly to Queen Elizabeth National Park. Chimp tracking Return to the airstrip in Kisoro for your flight to Queen Elizabeth National Park. Transfer to your lodge and, after settling in, go chimp tracking at Kyambura gorge. Enjoy views over the Rift Valley from the road. There may even be time for a short game drive as you head back. The following day you will head off on a dawn game drive. Afternoon boat cruise on Kazinga Channel It is worth getting up early today to catch the animals as they rise.
