On Gorillas and Wildlife Flying trip you will visit two of Ugandas Magical National Parks, Murchison Falls and the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest for Gorilla Trekking in a chartered or scheduled flight.

Gorillas and Wildlife Flying Trip Itinerary:

Day 01: Fly to Pakuba in Murchison Falls National Park

You will be driven to Kajjansi Airstrip for those using charters (scheduled flights start from Entebbe Airport) to catch your private charter plane to the Pakuba airstrip.  You will meet up with your guide who will be waiting to transfer you to Paraa Safari Lodge with a game drive en-route to the lodge.

Murchison Falls derived it's name from  The Magnificent Murchison Falls where the mighty River Nile explodes through a narrow gorge and flows down to become a placid river whose banks are thronged by hippos, crocodiles, waterbucks and buffaloes.

The vegetation is characterised by Savannah,  riverine forest and wood land.  Wildlife here is vast and it includes ,lions, elephants, girrafes, Uganda kobs and also many bird species including the rare shoebill.   After checking in and having some time to relax, you will go for an afternoon launch cruise to the bottom of the falls. This is often cited as being the highlight of the trip to Murchison since it allows you to get close and personal mostly with the hippos.

Along this stretch of the river there are reported to 4,000 hippos in addition to some enormous crocodiles.  The birdlife too is stunning.  This is a hour boat ride.  Return to the lodge for overnight.  Overnight Paraa Safari lodge
Meals included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 02: Chimpanzee tracking:

After very early breakfast you will cross the ferry to the southern bank for a morning chimpanzee trekking in the Kaniyo Pabidi Forest.  This is undisturbed area of natural forest within Budongo Forest reserve where you can walk beneath mature mahogany and iron wood trees.

During the chimpanzee trekking you will certainly see many forest birds also, including the chocolates-backed kingfisher, the white thigh hornbill and puvel's illadopsis found nowhere else in East Africa. Return to the lodge for lunch.  In the afternoon go with a guide for a game drive, among the animals you can see are Rothchild's Girrafe, lion elephant as well as several species of antelopes.  Overnight Paraa Safari Lodge
Meals included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 03: Fly to Bwindi Impentrable Forest

After breakfast your driver guide will take you for a final game drive, and later transfer you to Pakuba Airstrip for your Charter flight to Kayonza (for scheduled flights return to Entebbe and then fly to Kihihi in the afternoon) upon arrival at the airstrip, a vehicle will be waiting to transfer you the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.  In the afternoon you can go for a village walk.  Overnight Mahogany Springs/Engagi Lodge
Meals included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 04: Groilla trekking day

gorilla tourYou will rise early today and after breakfast, be driven to a point in the park where your gorilla trekking experience will begin. Well trained guides lead you to a point where gorillas were encountered the day before. The duration of the gorilla trekking is determined by the movement of the gorillas in search of food.

The Gorilla trekking experience can take anything from 1 hour - 8 hours at altitudes in excess of 7,500 ft and over rough steep terrain. Although the hike is physically demanding, the beauty of the forest and it's inhabitants make your experience extremely interesting. Upon encountering the Mountain gorillas, your fatigue is quickly forgotten.  The gorillas are not tame, but they have been habituated to accept the presence of quiet and non-threatening observers.  Each strictly regulated 60 minutes visit will passes all too quickly, and you must depart leaving the mountain gorillas to their fragile existence.

You will take a picnic lunch and water.  Porters are available at the park for hire to help you carry.  Overnight Mahogany Springs/Engagi Lodge
Meals included: Brakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 05: Departure

After breakfast, you will be transferred to Kayonza for your charter flight (to Kihihi for the scheduled flight) to meet your flight back to Entebbe where one of our representatives will be waiting to transfer you to the Entebbe international airport to connect with your international flight back home.
Meals included: Breakfast and lunch
