Meet and greet at Kigali International Airport where your Uganda Adventure Safari begins with one of our representatives who will warmly welcome you and facilitate typical arrival formalities.
Depending on the time of arrival you are advised to have money changed on this day, and if time allows you may go for a city tour with the help of our driver/guide. Visit the shopping malls and craft villages around town to get items which you may need while upcountry.
You may visit the Genocide Museum at a supplement of $35 per person or visit the coffee shops and local markets. You will then be transferred to Bwindi Impenetrable forest. The drive takes you through the area known as the "Switzerland of Africa" - locally known as the Kigezi Highlands - with its terraced hillside and winding roads to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.
Bwindi is located in south-western Uganda. The forest is said to be Africa’s oldest rainforest; it is world-renowned for its excellent gorilla-sighting opportunities. The rugged landscape features dense jungle, cascading waterfalls, sparkling mountain streams, deep valleys and steep ridges. This untouched forest has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its breathtaking natural beauty and unique ecological significance.
Aside from the amazing gorilla interactions, there are other drawcards such as a network of forest walks, over 340 species of birds to spot, and a variety of butterflies. Don’t miss the opportunity to explore the spectacular Virunga Volcanoes. You will arrive at the lodge in time for lunch. After lunch, you may opt for optional activities like Community walks, or a visit to the Batwa people near to the lodge.
