Day 2:LET'S TRACK SOME GORILLAS

After the early morning briefing from your ranger guide, begin tracking the mountain Gorillas through the ancient Bwindi Impenetrable Forest at 8:30am. This 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 forested duikers and bushbucks.

The trek can take anywhere from 3 to 9 hours. We would have to ensure that we are back to the starting point at 19:00. After a well-earned packed lunch, rest your legs and enjoy a view of the forested hillside, or take a restorative massage offered in most of the lodges.
