Day 2: Gorilla Tracking Bwindi Forest National Park

Today is the big day for gorilla trekking to meet Uganda’s gentle giant! For most people this is the absolute highlight of their tour in Uganda. 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. Bwindi Impenetrable Forest boasts mountain gorillas and Duikers. It also hosts five other species of primate, 113 species of mammal, over 200 butterflies and 360 birds. (Each Gorilla Permit costs $600) En route, your guide will point out signs of previous gorilla activity, including dung, nests and chewed bamboo shoots.

Your trek 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 3 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’.
