    Bwindi National Park - Gorilla Trekking

    After breakfast we transfer to the park reception, complete our park formalities then embark on a once-in-a-lifetime experience of tracking mountain gorillas.

    Once you spot them you are allowed to spend an hour watching your closest long-lost cousin. This is perhaps one of the most breathtaking wildlife experiences on earth!!! You get so close to these awesome giant primates. You stare at each other blankly not knowing who to break the long silence first. Tracking the gorillas through the light mountain forest on the slopes is a magical experience.

    Be back at the base in time for lunch! Some gorilla families however are more elusive and tracking can take a full day, especially when it is wet and muddy. Overnight at Kigali.
