You are expected to arrive a night before the safari or have an early morning landing. Your driver/guide will pick and depart for Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Encounter the gorillas firsthand on your trekking expedition. With a strenuous day trekking, it would be ideal to find a better place for relaxation. That place will certainly be Lake Bunyonyi - place of little birds. You will transfer to Lake Bunyonyi after the gorilla Trekking. Enjoy a swim in the lake before a return to Entebbe.
