Day 3: Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi impenetrable forest

Stop At: Bwindi Inpenetrable Forest, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park Uganda
Early morning, you will prepare yourself ready to encounter one of Bwindi’s gentle giants in the forest. A briefing from the UWA staff about the trekking and a few rules. Remember to pack your raincoat, boots, and some drinking water. It’s also advised to have done some medical checkup because you will have to be checked before the trekking and this is because Mountain gorillas are highly susceptible to human diseases. About 5 Primate species, 113 species of mammals, 200 butterflies & 300 birds can be found in the impenetrable forest. There are nine habituated Gorilla groups/ families and each group will be tracked by not more than a group of 8 tourists. This exciting journey along the forested slopes, entwined vines, bushes & bamboo is indeed overwhelming and remember to carry a camera with good or extra battery. Your guide will be pointing out previous gorilla activity including dung nests and chewed bamboo shoots. It takes about 2 – 7hours to track the mountain gorillas depending on how far they have gone. After gorilla tracking, you will be transferred to Queen Elizabeth National Park and if lucky you will spot the tree climbing Lions.
