This is a 4 days Uganda Gorilla Tour starts and ends in Kampala, the capital of Uganda. This gorilla tour takes you to Lake Mburo and Bwindi Gorilla Forest for a wildlife tour and gorilla tracking tour. From lake Mburo National park, Uganda’s smallest savanna national parks, a wildlife tour through the park will enable you see the different wild animals such as the gigantic eland antelope, topis, impalas, sitatungas, bush duikers, among others. The five lakes within the park also attract hippos, crocodiles and a variety of waterbirds, while fringing swamps hide secretive papyrus specialists such as the sitatunga antelope and red, black and yellow papyrus gonolek.
The tour later takes you through Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in South Western Uganda for a gorilla tour . Looking deep into the expressive brown eyes of these gentle giants is surely the most exciting and memorable encounter that you do not need to miss. Gorilla tracking will take place within one of the four habituated families of mountain gorillas that live in the park. Tracking from Bwindi is however a more challenging adventurous activity given that it involves you walking on the steeper forested hillsides looking for these great apes.
