WHY WE LIKE IT? Ideally situated within Bwindi Impenetrable Forest across from the Gorilla Trekking meeting point.

HOW TO GET THERE? Kihihi airstrip is the closest airstrip which is 1 hour and 15 minutes from the camp. The camp can also be reached by vehicle from Kampala; and there is also the option of a scenic road transfer from Kigali, Rwanda.

SPECIAL INTEREST: Trekking the Gorillas, but there is also all sorts of other wildlife to be seen.



The best times to visit are December to March and June to September. It can get very cool at night.



The gorillas are definitely the highlight. They are completely wild but have become used to seeing a few humans after years of habituation. Many of the expert guides have been involved in this process since the beginning and are able to explain the complicated etiquette involved in meeting a giant silverback. This is an opportunity afforded only to a select few, as just eight visitors are allowed to view each group every day. Tracking through dense forest with steep slopes means that participants do need to be physically fit to enjoy the track. Once the gorillas are located, spend a maximum of one hour with them before returning back to camp. Please note only children aged 15 and above can track gorillas.
