A once in a lifetime experience, tracking the magnificent Silverback Gorillas, is a must do in anyone’s lifetime. After an early breakfast you will be taken to the park Head Quarters for a briefing on conduct during gorilla tracking. You will then be allocated to a team of experienced ranger-guides who will take you into Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, to seek out one of the resident, habituated Gorilla groups. Time taken to reach the Gorillas varies from as little as 45 minutes to a few hours. Once the Gorillas are located, you will be allowed a maximum of one hour with them. This is one of the most memorable and awe-inspiring wildlife experiences to be had anywhere in the world– superlatives simply fail to convey just how impressive it is.
You don’t have to be an athlete to take on Gorilla tracking, but you do have to be prepared to traverse fairly steep, rough and uneven terrain for what could be a lengthy period of time. Rangers and porters always go at the speed of the slowest walker, and you will be able to make several stops for drinks or snacks (NB. permits are sold on a first-come-first-serve basis and there are only a limited number per day).
