Day 3: Gorilla Tracking

Today marks the highly anticipated encounter with the endangered mountain gorillas of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Home to both mountain gorillas and chimpanzees, Bwindi is a unique sanctuary boasting a rich diversity of wildlife, including five other primate species, 113 mammal species, over 200 butterflies, and 360 bird species. Your gorilla tracking experience will involve trekking to find one of the nine habituated gorilla family groups, which are accustomed to human presence for a limited time each day. The duration of the tracking can vary from 2 to 7 hours, but once the gorillas are located, your group will have a maximum of one hour to observe and appreciate these magnificent creatures up close. Encountering a mountain gorilla face-to-face is a deeply moving and unforgettable experience, akin to the iconic scenes from 'Gorillas in the Mist.' After the gorilla trek, return to the lodge in the afternoon to unwind amidst the breathtaking scenery and reflect on the day's extraordinary encounter.
