19: Kampala-Kisoro (19/20/21)
Kampala-Kisoro. From your Kisoro base, depending on the availability of gorilla permits, and the gorillas’ location, you will be viewing them in either the Magahinga or Bwindi National Parks in Uganda, the Virunga National Park in the DRC or at Ruhengeri in Rwanda. Due to the nature of the gorillas and their habits, viewing cannot be guaranteed. The gorillas themselves can tend to move around the locality quite a distance, and the trek can be quite arduous. The cost to track the gorillas differs from park to park, and can range from US$275 to US$375, per 1hr viewing.
Kisoro-Bunyoni. A short drive through arguably some of the most picturesque scenery in Africa brings you to Lake Bunyoni. Lake Bunyoni is the deepest crater lake in Africa and is home to a large number of bird and fish species, as well as otters.
Bunyoni-Kampala. After enjoying the peaceful surrounds of Lake Bunyoni you drive to Kampala for another overnight stay, and perhaps the chance to sample the nightlife. Today you will cross the Equator for the 2nd time, where there will be ample photo opportunities to commemorate this event.
