What it feels like to be there...

Climbing through the twisted vines of the forest, accompanied by armed rangers, you know you are on an adventure. Up ahead in the steamy jungle something is stirring. Then you catch sight of a mighty Silverback, standing his ground as his babies frolic almost within your reach. So intimate a family, so wild and yet so human. 

What to do there…

Bwindi is packed with activities and perfect for 4-7 days:
  • Major: Gorilla-watching, Jungle-treks, Cultural-visits, Mountain-biking, Bird-watching, Photography, Nature-walks.
  • Other: Dance, Community-projects, Spa/Massage.

Where to stay…

5* Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge is the Silverback of Bwindi hotels. Eight volcanic stone cottages surround a grand central lodge, with sumptuous sofas and views across the botanical gardens to the cloudy mountains beyond. Your butler will pander to your every whim, setting you a roaring fire, ready for the cool mountain nights.

Some practical information worth knowing…

  • Travel: Bwindi is a 1.5-2h flight or 8h drive from Entebbe. Jinja is 1.5-2h drive from Kampala/Entebbe.
  • Weather: hot and humid all year round, wet Mar-May.

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

There is nothing quite like meeting a troop of Gorillas in the wild. They exude raw power yet treat each other with such tenderness. Soak it up and, if you can, go back for more. You will sense changing moods and social dynamics. But take time to see the area too. The volcanoes and forest valleys are a thing of beauty, and visits to the local communities are always rewarding.

What it feels like to be there...

For a long time now, Uganda has been largely safe to travel around and it offers adventurers some truly life-changing experiences. The most amazing has to be the ‘Gorillas in the mist’ tour up in the mountain rainforests of the far west. On your way back, you can raft near the source of the mighty Nile and take in a safari or two in the many quiet game parks. 

Some practical information worth knowing…

The only major airport in Uganda is at Entebbe, just south of the capital Kampala. After that, jump in a 4x4 and hit the road. As you get up into the mountains the heat lessens but the humidity of the rainforest keeps everything feeling warm. Breathable fabrics are vital because it can get sweaty.

Nestled in luxuriant rainforest on it’s own private island, mid-stream in the mighty Nile, 5* Wildwaters Lodge is breathtaking. Thick vegetation covers the island allowing each of the timber-floored rooms to have private, breathtaking views over the River Nile and it’s rapids. The expansive, canvas walled, thatched roofed, rooms each boasts a private deck with elegant free-standing bath and wash basin carved from the local pink granite. Softly lit with hand-made furniture, you can relax in comfort on this island paradise listening to the thunder of the Nile rapids, and the calls of the many species of bird who call the island home. 

  Elevated wooden walkways gracefully link the rooms to the restaurant and bar area and offer an unforgettable walk through the heart of the forest. The main lodge is located unbelievably on a solid rock peninsula, amidst the rapids of the River Nile. Relax here cooled by the constant breezes from the racing rapids or plunge into the adjacent natural swimming pool carved by the river over millennia from the pink granite. This is the ultimate location to enjoy one of last wild areas of the entire Nile.

Region – Central & Southern Africa

What it feels like to be there...

Since the dawn of humanity we have been fascinated and frightened by Africa’s landscape and wildlife. As children we learn about lions, elephants and gorillas in the jungle before we can even name the town we live in. In our mind’s eye Africa is a place for great adventures, from trekking into rainforests, across plains and rolling dunes, to admiring the coral islands and luscious deltas. 

Some practical information worth knowing…

Nairobi, Dar Es Salaam, Cape Town and Johannesburg are the main airports in the region, but other national carriers have decent connections to the main European air hubs. Local flights can be costly, especially charters, but the road infrastructure is often only penetrable by 4x4 outside the cities, so it can be a good option. The heat of the day bakes the earth hard, but temperatures drop away rapidly at night. Pack a warm fleece and windcheater for the evenings, and light, breathable clothes for the day. Visas can usually be arranged on arrival, but you will need US dollars to cover the fees ($20-50pp). Dollars are widely accepted for other payments, but local currencies can be obtained relatively easily in the more modern towns, airports and banks.
