Embark on a captivating four-day, three-night expedition through the stunning landscapes of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and the tranquil shores of Lake Bunyonyi in Uganda. Begin your adventure in the ancient forests of Bwindi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to more than half of the world’s population of endangered mountain gorillas.
