Day 5: Gorilla trekking in Bwindi
Begin your gorilla trek in the early morning, and set off into the tangled and mist-shrouded forests with
guides and trackers who are very experienced at locating the Gorillas by finding the nest the family had
used the previous night. The search for these majestic animals goes through thick untamed rainforest,
where you'll be scrambling over mossy rocks and through deep undergrowth and it can be arduous at
times, but the encounter is worth the effort. Watching Gorillas in their natural habitat is a memory that
will last a lifetime.
The experienced ranger guides will willingly share with you a lot of information about history and
lifestyle of the Gorillas. After spending an hour with the gorillas we head back to the lodge and relax.
