3 Days Bwindi Uganda Gorilla Trekking Safari

Early morning, after breakfast on the first day of your 3 days Uganda gorilla safari to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, a professional Uganda tour guide from Beep Logic Safaris will meet you for a transfer to the park. For the almost 550km drive to Bwindi National Park, you are driven on a 4×4 wheel safari vehicle on a fairly tarmacked road along Kampala- Masaka –Mbarara route.

About 80km from Kampala, there will be a stop at the Equator line in Kayabwe for photography and geographical experiments. The equator is the world’s zero latitude line that divides the world into two halves, the northern and southern hemispheres. Being positioned here, this has made Uganda tours ideal especially because of the favorable tropical climate. At the equator line, you experiment on the forces within the zero latitude line and how they affect the movement to water at this point. One amazing fact here is that while at the equator line a person loses three kilograms and regains them in the northern or southern hemisphere.

Continuing to the southern hemisphere for your Uganda gorilla tour, you have lunch en route at Mbarara town. Driving further to western Uganda, the rolling terraced hills of kigezi highlands and the long horned Ankole cattle are part of what will constitute your scenic drive. On arrival at your preferred accommodation facility, your driver guide ensures check in for dinner and a nights rest at the hotel or lodge.
