Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi and Transfer to Queen Elizabeth National Park

After an early breakfast, you will check out of your lodge and head to the park offices. You will be briefed by the rangers before you begin the search for giant gorillas in the thick Bwindi Forest. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is renowned for its impressive mountain gorillas. However, it is unpredictable how long you will trek before finding them, since it all depends on their movement. Though the time spent tracking down these gorillas is unpredictable, the thrill of spending time and observing these gentle giants is a rare, moving, awesome, and exciting adventure that will leave you with long-lasting memories of a truly unique experience. Once seen, you will spend an hour with them before you return to reunite with your driver-guide. Transfer to Queen Elizabeth National Park, where you will arrive in the late evening and check in at your lodge for dinner and an overnight stay.
