1 Day Bwindi Gorilla Trek

Day 1: Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park

Very early in the morning our guide will pick you up from your hotel in Kabale or Kisoro and drive you to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Our guide will drive you to the park headquarters for briefing from the Uganda wildlife Authority ranger guides.

After the briefing, the ranger will lead you into the thick impenetrable forest to start your search for the endangered rare species of mountain gorillas. The gorilla trek always continues from the place where the endangered gorillas were last seen the previous day.

Upon finding the mountain gorillas, you will only be allowed to interact with them for only one hour. You should always keep maximum silence while with these Gorillas. You are allowed to take photographs or shoot videos of the mountain gorillas. Please don’t use flash when taking the pictures of the mountain gorillas.

To find the Gorillas, it’s such a tiresome experience since it can take you almost 3-8 hours to find them. However, once you meet these gorillas, you will easily forget the hatches you have gone through to find them and instead you will save the good memories of meeting them in the wild.

After the interaction, return to the park headquarters where you will meet our guide. If time allows take an afternoon nature walk in the impenetrable Forest and take a Batwa Trail experience and get to learn about the Twa culture. In the evening our guide will drop you at the lodge in Kabale or Kisoro.
