Encounter Uganda’s famous mountain gorillas and rich local life on this immersive four-night journey. Base at Gorilla Forest Camp, situated deep within Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, a national park and UNESCO World Heritage Site. The park is home to volcanoes, lush valleys and mountains, and cascading waterfalls, and half the world’s population of remaining mountain gorillas.
Camp consists of 8 tented suites on a flat ridge high in the forest. During your stay, spend two days exploring the lush jungle surrounds, trekking in search of gorillas with the help of your guide. This is a life-changing experience, and enables you to come face-to-face with these incredible creatures. The gorillas are completely wild but have become used to seeing a few humans after years of habituation.
You will also have the chance to spend a full day getting to know the local community in Buhoma. Visit Buhoma’s new bike shop, run by five women from the village, which sells and repairs bicycles. Perfect for experienced mountain bikers and novices alike, the bike shop provides guests with an opportunity to connect with locals and to support a woman-run enterprise in an area with limited employment opportunities. Become a part of the ladies’ success story and learn first-hand about the impact of the bike shop and your support as you cycle through on a tour of the village. That same day, enjoy a private tour of the newly built nursing college, led by one of the head administrators. As the only higher learning education facility in the region, this is an exciting opportunity to learn about community health and education in Uganda.
