Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi NP & Boat trip on Lake Bunyonyi

After an early breakfast, depart with a packed lunch to the starting point of the gorilla trekking. On arrival at the UWA briefing point, a group of locals will entertain you whereafter each group will be assigned a gorilla family to trek for the day in the company of an armed ranger. Due to the close relationship between humans and these gentle giants, it has been found that most human diseases are easily contractable to these amazing creatures, therefore, humans with signs of airborne diseases are discouraged from coming close to mountain gorillas. Sometimes, they can be completely denied the chance of trekking if rangers find it more severe.

The trekking experience takes between 1- 3 hours and involves slippery paths during hikes. You can hire a porter to help you during the trek with the luggage, or if you feel too tired to walk any longer. After successful trekking, you will be awarded a certificate and drive to Lake Bunyonyi for relaxation.
