Have a stopover for some informative talk and a splendid photographic opportunity at the Equator and then continue to Mbarara town for Lunch. Travel through the rolling green hills of Banana and Tea plantations and head to the National Park. Dinner and overnight at a choice of accommodation.
You can see gorillas in Uganda, Rwanda and Congo. However, note that gorillas are mainly divided into the mountain and the lowland with a couple of other sub-species in that. We suggest Rwanda, Uganda for views of the mountain gorillas and the Republic of Congo for the lowland gorillas. It is also possible to find mountain gorillas within the DR of Congo however due to the instabilities within the country, it has been challenging in some areas. Some tourists think that you can find gorillas even where you opt for safaris in Tanzania! This is wrong. However, Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya can be a great addition to your safari tour.
Early morning breakfast, with your packed lunch, you will report to the Park headquarters for the briefing from the park officials. You will trek through thick creepers and undergrowth with your guides to find the Gorillas, which can take you half an hour to three-quarters of the day.
The steeply forested landscape is incredibly dense but crisscrossed by numerous animal trails allowing access to tourists. 1 hour is allowed with the gorillas for photography and observation as they play, feed and groom. Dinner and overnight as the previous night.
