The chance of spotting these lions is about 70% though sometimes they are really hard to spot (most especially when they’re down in the grassland looking for prey). Hoping you get the chance to spot them, the sight will be spectacular!

Continue to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Bwindi is a big habitat for mountain gorillas in Uganda; harboring an estimated 400 mountain gorillas – roughly half of the world’s population, including several habituated groups, which can be tracked.

In the evening, you will have a community walk where you will encounter the Batwa communities who will welcome you with charming traditional dances and songs as well as visit their home with exceptional architecture and unique magnificent dress codes that will make you feel like you are another planet.

With a strenuous day ahead, you will do less on arrival but just check in your accommodation and relax as you prepare for the Bwindi gorilla trekking experience the following day.

The time taken and the terrain vary with the movements of these great primates. Once you locate a gorilla group, you will be allowed an hour in their presence. The thrill of spending time observing these gentle and endangered giants is an awesome, exciting experience to be long-savored.

Return to your lodge. Have your lunch and thereafter check out for a transfer to Lake Bunyonyi. Have a community encounter in the afternoon before you proceed to your lodge for relaxation. Lake Bunyonyi is framed by lush, green-terraced hills that reach a height of (2,200 – 2,478m) but it’s the 29 islands of various shapes and sizes scattered across the water that make it most magical — you could admire them all day.
