Day 3: Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi Forest

You’ll start the day with a cup of coffee before searching for mountain gorillas in Bwindi’s rainforest forest. The most fascinating and memorable activity for gorilla hikers is tracking mountain gorillas through the dense bush. The trekking time varies depending on the movement of the gorillas, but it usually lasts between 2 and 8 hours.

Before you begin hiking, plan to go for a long distance across muddy and hilly terrain before encountering the big apes in the jungle. The gorilla trekking experience is clearly gratifying as you sit, play, and interact with them. To safeguard the gorillas and tourists, no one with contagious diseases, such as diarrhea, is permitted to visit them. After the trip, you’ll return to your designated lodge.
