Overview

Gorilla Trek in Uganda

You’ve been in search of the Big Five, now what about the Big Six? On this trip we get up-close-and-personal, trekking deep into the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Reserve to meet the elusive East African Gorilla. Majestic, mountain-dwelling and pretty darn massive, these magnificent creatures are worth every second of the journey through the Kigezi mountains to find them. With an expert team of gorilla trackers and local guides, a special permit to spend up to an hour with a gorilla family, and an extra game drive at Lake Mburo for wildlife spotting, prepare yourself for the most unforgettable wildlife encounter and once-in-a-lifetime gorilla experience.

DAY 2 - BWINDI IMPENETRABLE FOREST RESERVE

We’ll start early to make the most of our Gorilla-spotting opportunities today. After breakfast at the lodge, we’ll drive to the nearby park offices to attend a briefing by the Tourism Conservation and the gorilla guides. You will be briefed on how to behave in the forest while in the presence of a gorilla family. Later, after registration, the gorilla trekking starts with trackers, guides and porters. Once the gorilla group is found, you will be allowed an hour to stay with the gorillas before breaking off for lunch in the forest. Later, we’ll walk back to our waiting vehicle and return to the park offices to receive a gorilla trekking Certificate. Mission complete! You’ll be dropped at the lodge to freshen up after our adventures. Time permitting, you may have the chance tonight to sign up for a community village visit or a Batwa Cultural experience.
