 (B,L,D) Accommodation Gorilla Lodge

 DAY 10: 21st. 10.2022:  BWINDI IMPENETRABLE NATIONAL PARK – GORILLA TRACKING

An absolute highlight of your safari. A meeting with the gentle giants of Bwindi gorilla tracking in the beautiful ecosystem of the Bwindi National Park. Expect to walk a long distance in steep and muddy conditions, sometimes with rain overhead before you encounter any gorillas. (That is as bad as it gets but still very doable. I have done this tracking in all conditions and everyone’s fitness level is catered for) But it will definitely be worthwhile as you observe them closely while they eat, play and rest. A unique and unforgettable experience! For this activity you will need long pants tucked in to long socks. Good hiking boots. Long sleeved top and a rain jacket. We use local porters as a way of supporting the community which has reduced poaching in the park. They carry our back packs which will have our lunch, water and give us a push or pull if needed along the way. We will also take a walking pole, which we can borrow from our lodge. Tracking time is variable from my own experiences it can take from 30mins to 4 hours to find the gorillas. The time it takes to find them has no bearing on the time spent with them which is 1 hour. A good level of fitness is needed – please send me an email if you have any questions about this and I can put your mind at rest. Being with the gorillas is one of the most peaceful experiences.
