    The Boma Lodge is set in a leafy suburb, a few minutes' drive from Entebbe International Airport and is ideal for stopovers. The Boma Lodge consists of fifteen bedrooms all of which combine the modern comforts one expects today with the charm and character of the original 1940's home. All the rooms are individually decorated in a mixture of African and European decor, and have been designed to reflect the original colonial architecture. The rooms do vary, but most include four-poster beds with mosquito nets, private verandah, ensuite bathroom, satellite TV, international power points, safes and wireless internet connection. A residents' and diners' bar set in landscaped gardens with lake views provide a charming and relaxed "country house" experience.

    Bwindi Impenetrable Forest impresses with a truly theatrical landscape - this is a region of volcanoes, jagged valleys, waterfalls, lakes and dramatic mountain ranges. And it is here, on a flat ridge high in the forest, that Sanctuary's Gorilla Forest Camp is tucked away. Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp is nestled deep inside Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in southwest Uganda, home to just over half the world's last surviving mountain gorillas. Seeing these gentle giants in their natural habitat is a unique opportunity afforded to a select few, as just eight visitors are allowed to view each habituated group each day. Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp is the perfect luxurious base for a gorilla tracking experience. The eight tents at Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp are stylish and spacious, each featuring a private viewing deck.

Day 3

Gorilla Trekking

Following breakfast at the lodge, travel to National Park Headquarters to meet your guides for the day and begin your gorilla tracking experience. Experienced guides and trackers will accompany your party on an early morning trek into the dense rain forest on the mountain slopes. The journey, through dense foliage and up steep climbs, is abundantly rewarded with the lifetime experience of viewing mountain gorillas in their natural habitat. You will have an opportunity to be within meters of these magnificent apes, sharing in their daily lives and experiencing their day-to-day activities. Mountain gorillas are extremely rare with only an estimated 880 remaining in the wild. This is an experience you won't soon forget!
Following the trek, return to your accommodation and, if time allows, take a guided afternoon forest or community walk. These are additional activities that may be booked and paid for direct. Please note: tracking may be fairly strenuous with treks up to six hours or longer, at high altitudes, not uncommon. Also, mountain gorillas are wild animals and, as such, sightings cannot be guaranteed. However viewing success rates are over 90%.
