Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi National Park
Bwindi impenetrable forest is a densely forested region, and this is a section where the endangered gorilla species are found. The conservation of the gorilla species in this area has allowed an increase in numbers over the past decades. This is a promising factor because these primates will stay around for a long while to come. The gorilla trek, allows people to view these great primates, and the funds collected are put to use to conserve them and as well benefit the communities in this area.
Day 1 – Pick up and depart for Bwindi national park, a lunch break en route, and thereafter continue to the park. This is a long drive, which will get you to the park in the late afternoon. Relax for the rest of the after as you prepare for the gorilla trek the next day. Overnight stay at Rushaga gorilla lodge FB
Day 2 – Gorilla Trek – an early start today. You will be briefed about the trek, by the guides at the start point of the trek. Hereafter you will be led into the forest to track the gorilla group that you will be destined to view. The trek normally takes between 3-8 hours given the movement of the gorilla family. We advise you to bring with you a small backpack to bring with sunglasses, sun lotion, a light rain jacket, a hat, and a lunch pack provided by the lodge. Clothing: Long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, hiking shoes.
