Enjoy a whole new luxurious 3 days gorilla experience in Bwindi with this luxury flying gorilla tracking safari. This 3 day gorilla safari cuts out the road option and lets you fly to Bwindi using chartered flights through Kihihi Airstrip for Buhoma or Kisoro Airstrip in south western Uganda.
With a fly in option, you spend less than two hours travelling compared to the 9 hours of road travel hence, you are likely to be less fatigued. With this safari, it is also possible to arrive and travel to Bwindi Forest National Park on the same day if your arrival is a bit early. This is one of the best luxury gorilla trekking safaris. We have this 3 day tour under our Uganda group safaris list. In case you are a group, we can organize this safari for you too. Please see detailed plan below;
Despite including flights, this 3 Days Flying Gorilla Safari in Uganda can also be mid-range or budget. You can choose to stay in either facilities.
Day 1 – Arrival and Transfer to Bwindi

Day 2 – Gorilla Trekking
This turns out to be the best day of your 3 Days Flying Gorilla Safari in Uganda. It is the day you bond with Mountain Gorillas, a species of primates that shares over 98% of human DNA. You will rise to an early morning breakfast then head to the park headquarters to catch up with the 7:30 briefing meeting before heading to the forests to search for these gentle primates. You will be granted a full 1 hour encounter with these primates before you return to your starting point. Finishing this trek is one of the best moments of your vacation in Uganda.
