Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
After an early breakfast, our driver guide will drive you to headquarters at about 7:45 am for registration and then you will join other trackers for a briefing about your Gorilla Tracking safari. Rangers will normally classify you according to levels of fitness with the less fit being allocated a nearer group whereas the fitter groups will trek the more distant groups. Each gorilla group can receive only 8 visitors for a day, visiting for 1 hour. Ranger guides will lead you through the thick creepers and undergrowth as you trek to find the Gorillas. The park is home to other animals and birds with trails in the forest. You may encounter forest elephants, buffalos, antelopes, primate species such as baboons and chimpanzees, L'Hoest Monkeys as well as numerous birds, some of which are endemic to the region.
