    Day 1: Heading South to Lake Bunyoni

    Depart from Kampala early in the morning and drive to the south-western part of Uganda and the tranquil Lake Bunyoni, your base for the next four days. The drive, though short in distance, will take most of the day as the roads are rugged and busy. If time permits, take some time to explore around the area before night fall.

    Days 2-4: Trekking with the Mountain Gorillas

    Over the next three days, have a chance of a lifetime trekking with the mountain gorillas of the Bwindi National Park. If permits aren’t available, you will trek in the Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo, or the Ruhengeri National Park in Rwanda.

    Trekking is an optional activity and will be done on only one of the next three days. Extra days have been set aside to accommodate a larger group size. On the days you are not trekking, there are plenty of activities to keep you busy. Take the opportunity to visit a local village, hike in the hills around the lake looking for bird life, or head into Kabale and do some shopping at the markets. Otherwise just relax at the camp site and swim in the lake.

    Day 5: Crossing the Equator ending in Kampala

    Today, head back to Kampala with the memories of a lifetime after following in the footsteps of Diane Fossey. As you cross the Equator, stop for a classic ‘one foot in each hemisphere’ photo. Your tour will end once you arrive in Kampala.
