Another big dream of mine from a young age was to do a ‘real’ jungle trek with machetes and lots of nature. I hadn’t really done this before on any of my other trips, and what better place to do it than in Uganda, home of the Mountain Gorilla. To be honest, this holiday found me, rather than me it. I knew the date we wanted to go away in September, and that we wanted something different, but this could be anywhere. I found the flights using the google flight finder tool and they were so cheap I booked them instantly!
We hired a car and booked gorilla permits from home, then followed this route:
- Entebbe – 1-night
- Bwindi (Rushaga Region) – 2-nights
- Lake Bunyonyi – 1-night
- Queen Elizabeth National Park – 2-nights
- Lake Mburo National Park – 1-night
- Sesse Island – 1-night
