Day 1 – USA to Entebbe (via Dubai & Nairobi)
Today you will begin your Swain Destinations customized itinerary. Please note, international air has not been included in this package price.
Day 2 – Welcome to Entebbe, Uganda
Today you arrive at Entebbe International Airport, where you will be met by our representative and transferred to your accommodation for overnight.
Uganda is saturated in color; the outstanding natural beauty of its people and its landscapes have always stirred inspiration in travelers and residents. Ecologically, Uganda is where the East African Savannah meets the West African jungle. Where else but in this impossibly lush country can one observe lions prowling the open plains in the morning and track chimpanzees through the rainforest undergrowth the same afternoon, then the next day navigate tropical channels teeming with hippo and crocs before setting off into the misty mountains to stare deep into the eyes of a mountain gorilla?
Day 3 – Entebbe to Bwindi
Transfer from your accommodation to the airport for your charter flight to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Upon arrival into Bwindi, you will be met and transferred to your accommodation for overnight.
In the jungles of this forest lives half the world's population of highly endangered Mountain Gorillas. This pocket of huge primeval forest in the Virunga Mountain range is one of the most biologically diverse areas on Earth and has therefore been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The forest floor is damp and laden with leaf mold, matted vegetation and fallen vines. Clamber up and down the slippery slopes in search of a glimpse of the elusive gorillas.
Day 4 – Bwindi Impenetrable Forest
You depart this morning for a trek into the depths of Bwindi National Park. You will be led by experienced trackers who will bring you amongst a family of mountain gorillas. The incredible primates are extremely rare; with only 700 remaining in the wild very few people in the world are lucky enough to see them in their natural habitat.
Day 5 – Gorilla Trekking
The day begins with an early breakfast and after breakfast head out for another day of tracking these peaceful giants.
Day 6 – Bwindi to Entebbe
This morning you will fly back to Entebbe where you will be met and transferred to your accommodation for the night.
