"If you don't have much time, you can enjoy a small break at Mihingo Lodge, definitely one of my favourites. Great views and a lovely introduction to game-viewing prior to your Gorilla trek. The long drive back to Entebbe gives you plenty of time to reflect on your encounter with the endangered gorillas."
