3 days Gorilla Trekking & Lake Bunyonyi relaxation starts with the pick up by our driver guide and transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.

That place will certainly be Lake Bunyonyi – a 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 International Airport.
