Day 3: Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi forest

Get ready for the bid day today as it will be an unforgettable experience trekking the rare mountain gorilla. You will be passing through tangled vegetation, and steep valleys so carry the right gear for your trekking experience. Surprisingly Bwindi has both Gorillas & Chimpanzees – the only forest in Africa which can make this claim in fact. It also hosts five other species of primate, 113 species of mammal, over 200 butterflies and 360 birds. The Gorillas you will track belong to one of nine habituated family groups who can tolerate the presence of humans for a brief period every day. In groups of 8 people maximum you will be led by an experienced tour guide into the Jungles and this will probably take around 2 to 7 hours depending on how far the gorillas are. You will only be allowed to have 1 hour with the gorillas once they have been located. Indeed it’s a privilege and fantastic opportunity to get close these gentle giants. In the Evening visit the local communities around the forest and interact with the people.
