Day 1

Today you go to track the rare mountain gorillas! The tour guide will pick you up from the hotel and drive you to the visitor's center at the park. Here, you will have a briefing before a ranger at the Uganda Wildlife Authority takes you to the ancient Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, searching for the mountain gorillas. The search for a gorilla family can take a couple of hours or a whole day, depending on the location of the apes. Keep an eye out for forest species such as buffaloes, elephants, black-fronted duikers, and bushbucks.

It is a humbling experience to stand just meters from man's distant cousins as they eat, rest, play, and bond with their young. Follow the mountain gorillas as they move freely in the impenetrable forest and discover their gorgeous natural habitat and the many species they share it with.

Depending on availability, you will track from one of the gorilla groups near your accommodation in Bwindi.

NB: Remember to carry your packed lunches.
