After an early breakfast, we will head to the Headquarters of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park for an orientation plus meeting the guides as well as separation into the groups basing on which gorilla group you are to be tracking.

From there you will set off for your thrilling experience of the Gorillas. Hiking within this mysterious and wonderful forest offers quite a lot to see as you make your way to see the Mountain Gorillas. Look out for additional primates, butterflies, mammals and birds. The trekking will entail thorough climbing before you come face to face with the Mountain Gorillas, watching them only a few meters away. You will see the baby with the mothers, the gorillas partaking their every day routine just right in front of you. Because of tourists like you, we have worked with communities to protect the Gorillas. Our Fair Tourism model supports communities around Bwindi to protect the Gorillas. You will personally see how they are thriving within the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.

After trekking, you will go for a tour of the Pygmies community and also do a self-guided birding evening around the premises. Look out for hundreds of bird species in the forest. You will return to the lodge after the day's activities.
