Day 2: Gorilla Tracking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
After an early morning breakfast, and with your picnic lunch we take a short drive to the park offices for briefing where we meet the excellent local guides and trackers who give a talk on the etiquette of Gorilla trekking. We then hike into the forest to a spot where gorillas were seen the previous night and track from there. Trekking may take anything between 1 to 6 hours depending on the location of the family and altitudes which is in excess of 7500 feet. The terrain is rough and muddy calling for physical fitness. Although the hike is physically demanding, the beauty of the forest and surrounding scenery make the trekking worthwhile. It is recommended that you take plenty of water with you on the trek. Cameras and plenty of fast speed films are recommended.
