One Way Fly in Safari to Trek Gorillas in Uganda

It can also be the other way round. That is going to Bwindi by road and return by air to Entebbe. This option is possible with safaris beginning from Entebbe and not Kigali.

When to Bwindi by road, you will make a stop at the Uganda Equator, a high-way attraction by road sides. Visit craft shops here, take photos at the Equator monuments and buy souvenirs from the shops around the tourist site. From the Equator, continue and drive by sides of Lake Mburo National Park. Expect to spot Zebras and antelopes plus others free of charge while in your vehicle. Arrive in Mbarara town for lunch at Igongo Cultural Museum, Agip Motel or any other decent place. Delicious exotic and African dishes feature prominently on the menus. After lunch, continue to Bwindi on the road characterized by sighting of greenery, highlands and lowlands to the amazement of your eyes. Arrive at the park in the evening and retire to the lodge for overnight. This trip among the 3 days Uganda gorilla trekking packages can be done the other way round.
