Day 6
Day 6
Gorilla tracking in Bwindi!
Very few wildlife experiences can compare with the thrill and intensity of spending time observing a habituated group of Mountain gorilla, and that is what's on the agenda for today.
 
After an early start with a briefing at the park HQ, depart with your scout and trackers to one of the resident, habituated gorilla families, where you can spend an hour with them.
 
While you do not need to be an athlete for gorilla tracking, time taken to reach these magnificent primates varies considerably - it can be as quick as 45 minutes, or, it can take a few hours to reach them. Terrain in Bwindi does include some arduous slopes, so a reasonable level of fitness is necessary. (During your briefing, you can enlist the services of excellent and very helpful porters, for a nominal extra charge).
