Day 2: Gorilla Tracking

Up relatively early for a hearty breakfast to give you the energy needed for gorilla tracking.

Before 8:00 am with your packed lunch report to the ranger station for registration and a talk by one of the rangers; the guides will then take you through the bush, pushing your way through the undergrowth, parting thick creepers, to track the gorillas. It is an extraordinary feeling sitting in the dense rainforest knowing you are with a few of the last remaining mountain gorillas.

The pearl of Africa has a very strong cultural heritage well-endowed with different cultural and historical sites, diverse landscape encompasses the snow-capped Rwenzori Mountains and immense Lake Victoria. Its abundant wildlife includes chimpanzees as well as rare birds. Remote Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is a renowned mountain gorilla sanctuary. Murchison Falls National Park in the northwest is known for its 43m-tall waterfall and wildlife such as hippos. Without doubt one of the world’s greatest wildlife experiences is the thrill of a close encounter with the reclusive mountain gorillas in their natural habitat. Uganda has the best chance of viewing these delightful apes with the fact that it boasts two parks where they have been habituated for human.
