Today enjoy surely. After breakfast, proceed for the morning briefing before enjoying the
highlight of the trip- Gorilla trekking, which may last the entire day. We trek through the
rainforest and bamboo covered slopes, accompanied by a guide and trackers, in search of a
mountain gorilla family. The walking can sometimes be tough and long, but when you catch a
glimpse of the magnificent silverback, any discomforts will be quickly forgotten. When sighted,
visitors will be guided to within 6 meters from the gorillas, sit around them for a whole hour while
gazing into their big round eyes.
Gorilla trekking is unpredictable. It’s difficult to foresee how many hours you will hike. The gorilla
excursion can take from 2 up to 8 hours. Expect to walk along distance in steep and
Muddy conditions, sometimes with rain overhead, before you encounter any gorillas. A good
physical condition is recommended. For conservation purposes, time spent with the gorillas is
limited to one hour. A ranger will brief you on how to behave with the gorillas.
While most of today’s forests are no more than 12,000 years old, Bwindi vegetation has been
weaving itself into tangles over at least 25,000 years, in the process accumulating a lengthy Species
list. This includes 310 species of butterfly, 51 reptiles, 200 trees, 88 moths and an exceptional 120
types of mammal including 10 primates. The latter includes
Chimpanzee,, L’hoests, red tailed and blue monkey, black and white colobus, baboon, and Bwindi
mostfamous resident, the mountain gorilla. Bwindi is a prime destination for birdwatchers. Its 350 species
