It will be a great time watching the gorillas play, communicate to each other and the mothers feed the young ones. After meeting the gorillas, strictly one hour is spent with them, so make sure you utilize your time with them for example take photos, enjoy them as they play and feed.

    You will have breakfast and then move to the rangers’ post and here you will receive some briefing on the dos and don’ts during the trekking. Thereafter, you will enter the gorilla sanctuary for your adventure. The area offers dramatic steeply forested landscape and is incredibly dense but crisscrossed by numerous animal trails allowing access to tourists. The time taken and the terrain vary with the movements of these great primates and once you have located a gorilla group, you will be allowed an hour in their presence. The experience of coming face to face with these peaceful giants is very overwhelming. Trekking gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda is quite challenging as it involves moving over rugged terrain of steep slopes and valleys. The jungle is very lively with rich forest sounds and the trek ranges between 2-8hours. Later in the afternoon you will drive to Kigali to catch your departure flight.
