Silverback Luxury Tours

The Ultimate Experience



This 4-day gorilla trekking package in Uganda and Rwanda is intended for travelers who want to go gorilla trekking in Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park and Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Park.

One can watch two different gorilla families and compare the group dynamics and behaviors. Each gorilla group has a unique makeup. Some have a higher proportion of females, silverbacks, and people overall.

One group may have a mother with twins, while another may contain solely young juveniles. Rwanda has a more mountainous landscape, and the bamboo forest is the primary food source for gorillas.

On the other side, the majority of Bwindi is covered with tropical rain forest. Let’s talk more specifically about the two national parks, starting with Bwindi.

Day 1: Pick up from Kigali, city tour and transfer to Bwindi National Park

After picking you up from the airport or your hotel in Kigali, our guide will give you a half-day tour of the city. You will stop at a gift shop, the former presidential palace, the genocide memorial center, and the major city market during the tour.

Following the city tour, you will begin the four-hour drive through the breathtaking countryside of Rwanda to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park (green rolling hills and plantations).

You will enter Uganda after passing immigration and then go to your lodge in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. Rest and get ready for the next day’s gorilla tracking.

Day 2: Mountain Gorilla trekking in Uganda – Visit the Batwa Pygmies

Get up extremely early, get breakfast, and go to the park headquarters for briefing. The head Guide gives the briefing at 7:00 am, and it mostly covers how to behave among the gorillas or what to pack when gorilla tracking.
gorilla group will be assigned to you, and you will have the option of hiring porters. Your general fitness determines which gorilla groups you will be assigned to. Some gorilla groups venture farther into the bush, requiring longer treks and posing additional difficulties. 
Once you are aware of your gorilla group, you should go searching for the primates in the wild. Bring quality camera so you may capture pictures of the group and yourself. 
Following your hour-long encounter with the mountain gorillas, you should head back to the starting point where you will meet our guide to take you back to the lodge for lunch and rest.
You will be taken to visit the nearby Batwa pygmy settlement in the late afternoon. The Batwa were the original occupants of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, but they were moved outside the park to make room for initiatives for the conservation of gorillas.
The government’s effort helped gorillas and other park creatures, but the Batwa did not. The Batwa have been living as hunters and gatherers for thousands of years, keeping their separate from other ethnic groupings.
They now have to manage them and learn their customs. Because they are unable to compete with the more aggressive tribes, the Batwa have been sidelined and the majority of them live in poverty.
You will learn a great deal about the Batwa people’s culture while you are with them enjoying their traditional dances.

Day 3: Transfer to Volcanoes national park in Rwanda – Visit the Gorilla Guardians Village

You should get up when you feel like it today and eat breakfast as you wait for our driver after yesterday’s initial encounter with the primates. Check out and start your return trip to Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park. Once you get to the resort, lunch will be served. As you wait for the driver to take you to the Gorilla Guardians Village after lunch, you can have a nap at the lodge. When the Center first opened, it was known as the Iby’iwacu Cultural Village, and it served as a site where former poachers could sell tourists souvenirs. The location was renovated by the government, who made it into one of East Africa’s top cultural hubs. You can either dress yourself in the traditional attire or enjoy traditional dance performances during the day.

We are here for you every day 24/7.
