Day 4: Gorilla Trekking In Bwindi Impenetrable Forest & Transfer to Lake Bunyonyi

On this gorilla In Uganda Safari, we’ll trek in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, home to the biggest number of mountain gorillas among all national parks. After briefing at  08:00 am, we’ll head into the depth of the jungle for what is a most unique wilderness experience.  The rangers will walk you down the narrow forest paths through thick undergrowth. Once found, the rangers will brief us through the dos and don’ts before making any contact with the mountain gorillas.


We’ll spend up to 1 hour watching the gorillas in their natural habitat. We’ll get in proximity with the gorillas as you quietly observe the gorillas  play, eat, forage, groom, sleep and if we are lucky, we’ll get to watch the gorillas mate. This once in a lifetime experience will give us unique insights into the life and social dynamics of the gorilla families. Gorilla watching also gives us a chance to observe the uncanny similarities between gorillas and human beings and gorillas with whom we share 98% DNA. If we are lucky, we will experience the playfully exuberant energy of the juveniles who often skip from branch to branch and play with heightened enthusiasm when in the presence of humans.  


After seeing the mountain gorillas, we’ll break for a picnic lunch in the forest before embarking on the hike back to the gorilla lodge. 


After a long day’s trek, embark on a journey to the rejuvenating Islands of Bunyonyi. Enjoy dinner at the lakeside as you unwind by the lake shores at the lodge. 


Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
