Day 1 Travel from Kampala to Kisoro forest national park 
6:30 am we pick you from your address in Entebbe or Kampala at 7.00 am we set off for the South West of Uganda driving along the Kampala to Masaka high-way. The first part takes us through central Uganda, with a brief stop at the imaginary equator-line. You will have Lunch in Mbarara at the famous Igongo Culture Center and from here we continue on the last stretch through a beautiful landscape also defined as the "Switzerland of Africa": mountains, lakes, hills with cultivated terraces, tropical rain-forest and bamboo forest. On the last hill the landscape unfolds beneath us, taking in the vast planes between Uganda, Rwanda and Congo, with the Virunga volcanoes dominating the view. We will reach Kisoro later in the evening. Dinner and overnight at your booked Lodge/hotel.

Day 2 Mgahinga gorilla tracking!
6:00 am You will travel by car from Travelers Rest Hotel in Kisoro to Mgahinga (1 hr). On arrival you will attend a briefing (7.45 am) and at 8.30 am you will start the tracking by way of walking into the forest. We can not determine how long the walk will be since it depends entirely on the way the gorillas will move looking for food. Once you have found the gorillas, you will be able to spend up to one hour with them! You will be expected back to the starting point by 7.00 pm at the latest. Being physically fit is recommended.
It is always best to hear from other visitors, and this is Janet and Sarah's story:

"At a distance of about fifteen feet a mountain gorilla with her baby appears. She comes out of the bushes, looks at me and lies down. My presence does not seem to bother her. She just wants to rest, whether I am there or not. I can almost touch her. My heart dances with joy. I am in a good position to take pictures, so I let my camera do its work. It is the thrill of a lifetime. I cannot but agree with the American zoologist George Schaller, the first to study gorillas in the Virunga volcanoes, who once said: ‘No one who looks into the eyes of a gorilla, gentle and vulnerable, can remain unchanged."
