Day 2: Gorilla Trekking Bwindi Forest

gorillas-bwindi-ugandaBreakfast followed by a briefing before setting off to the forest in search for gorillas. You must have packed water. The time you will take searching these gentle giants ranges between 2 to 8hrs depending on how they move in their natural environment. You must be physically fit to trek through steep rocks and slippery jungle grounds, climbing up and down making it tiresome. However, the thrill of encountering these giant Apes erases the poor memories you went through in trying to search for them. Retire to your lodge for late lunch, time permitting, take an evening walk to nearby communities or Batwa people (pygmies) or cultural entertainment. Dinner and overnight at Wagtail Eco Safari Camp, Gorilla Mist Camp / Gift of Nature Lodge / Mahogany Springs Lodge.
