Bwindi Gorillas - 4 days/3nights
Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is one of Uganda’s pristine forests that protect a wealth of wildlife including half of the world’s population of the mountain gorillas.
Gorilla trekking in Bwindi is renowned as one of the most thrilling adventuresin the world. There are a number of habituated gorilla groups; Nkuringo, Nshongi, Mushaya, Buhoma, Habinyanja, Rushegura, Mubare groups. All these groups only take 8 people per day , as this helps to prevent congestion while tracking.
Once a habituated gorilla family has been located by your park guides, you can settle down for an hour to observe them as they feed and groom while their babies tumble about the undergrowth - all under the watchful gaze of the great silverback male. Sitting only a few metres from a gorilla and looking into its soft brown eyes is a spine-tingling experience not easily forgotten.
For a gorilla safari you need to be fairly fit and equipped for the humid, muddy conditions of a rainforest hike with steep slopes and tangled vegetation. Nevertheless, the chances of finding a gorilla family are often around 95%.
