Day 2:  Gorilla Tracking  

  • Today is the big day!… prepare yourself for an encounter with one of Bwindi’s gentle giants: the rare Mountain Gorilla. For most people this is the absolute highlight of their tour in Uganda.
  • Bwindi Impenetrable Forest boasts both Mountain Gorillas and 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 track belong to one of nine habituated family groups who can tolerate the presence of humans for a brief period every day.
  • En route to the gorillas, your guide will point out signs of previous gorilla activity, including dung, nests and chewed bamboo shoots. Your gorilla tracking will be an exciting journey along forested slopes, entwined vines, bushes and bamboo before you eventually reach the gorilla family.
  • The time taken to track the gorillas can be as few as 2 hours to as many as 7 hours.
  • Once the gorillas have been located, your group will be allowed a maximum of one hour with them. Coming face-to-face with a mountain gorilla is a truly humbling and emotional experience.
  • This is a fantastic and privileged opportunity to get up close and personal with Uganda’s very own ‘Gorillas in the Mist’.
  • Accommodation: Mutanda Lake Resort
  • Meal Plan: Breakfast, packed lunch, dinner
