Day 2: Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi Forest

On the second and last day of the 2 days Bwindi gorilla trekking, you will have an early morning breakfast, and head for a briefing at the park headquarters. The briefing starts at 8:0am and you will be told about the dos and donts of the gorilla trek. After the briefing, you will begin the trek into the impenetrable jungles in searching for the endangered mountain gorillas. Gorilla tracking is unpredictable and therefore it is difficult to foresee how many hours it will take to find the great apes. The gorilla trek may take 2-8 hours, and you should be prepared to walk a long distance along steep hills and valleys as you view other features in the forest. You should carry a rain overhead, given that sometimes it may rain in the forest especially during the rainy season. For conservation purposes, the time allowed to be spent with the gorillas is limited to one hour. The ranger will brief you on how to behave with these gentle giants. After the gorilla trek, embark on a return trip to Kigali. Our driver guide will drop you off at the hotel or airport.
