Marabou stork near Kampala

Typical Day

If gorillas are not in camp, have a morning wake up call by the lodge staff and have breakfast. Later, walk or have your driver guide drive to the nearby gorilla briefing point at the park headquarters. The visitors will be grouped into groups of 8 per gorilla group to be trekked. Please note that gorilla trekking is very strenuous and trekking the gorillas will be at high altitudes through steep climbs and descents. The gorilla trackers will be ahead of the main trekking party, while the gorilla guide would be with the visitors following at a distance in contact via two way radio. The gorillas are tracked and the guide will lead the visitors to the gorilla group where viewing is limited to approximately one hour. The porters would stay with your rucksack as you view and photograph the mountain gorillas. From here, the Mountain gorilla guide will lead the trekking team to a short distance away from the gorillas to have a picnic lunch. The short walk leads the team back to the safari guides who will drive you back to the overnight accommodations. If time allows, and one is still in good shape after the gorilla tour, it is possible to do a village walk at Bwindi to the Batwa pygmies or to the Munyaga Waterfalls where colonies of Blue Monkeys, L'hoest monkeys, Red tailed monkeys, Forest Duikers can be seen.
