Your trip starts off in Entebbe Uganda before you proceed to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park where you will see endangered mountain gorillas in their natural rainforest habitat.

You will hike in the thick forest to find the mountain gorillas, and then spend 1 hour observing them before heading back. From Bwindi, you will then go back to Kampala with a stopover at the equator line for some classic equator photos, and then continue to Kampala.
