Stop At: Bwindi Inpenetrable Forest, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park Uganda
After breakfast, gather at the respective park headquarters for a briefing at 08:00 and eventually start your gorilla trekking encounter. You will follow the trails of your respective gorilla family traversing the forest with is hilly forested landscapes and deep saddles. The hills are forested with mature trees and dense undergrowth that have earned it the name, impenetrable. During Uganda gorilla tracking, trackers are advised to carry the raincoats as well as the boots since the weather is always unpredictable.

%There are also porters who carry the luggage on behalf of the guests at a small cost. Getting one is highly recommended. Once you come face to face with these gorillas, the rangers will also guide you on how to handle them most especially by giving them a six-meter distance as you play around with them. Kindly note that it’s also not so easy to predict the time to be taken while trekking and this will mainly depend on the location of some families since some stay really far from the headquarters.

%The gorilla trekking encounter tends to last two to eight hours inclusive of a one-hour direct encounter with them. Seeing the critically endangered apes as they forage, socialize, the young gorillas rolling themselves on tree branches, and the silverback demonstrating his authority is a moment of wonder that derives remarkable excitement. After the trek, you will transfer to Lake Bunyonyi for an evening relaxation and overnight
