Enjoy a beautiful drive over the mountains, as we transfer to our base in Kisoro, on the southwestern tip of Uganda. Today we embark on the experience of a lifetime. Trek through the early morning mist in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, home to roughly half of the world’s remaining 700 mountain gorillas. The trekking can be demanding and the day-long – a water bottle and good walking shoes or boots are highly recommended. Experienced local guides will lead us through the thick mountain jungle and once we locate the gorillas, we will stay and observe them for about an hour – this time is strictly governed by the Uganda Wildlife Authority. Photography is permitted (although not the use of flash and there are restrictions on the use of video cameras), but with or without a camera, this is one of the most breathtaking and emotional experiences Africa can offer and certainly one that will remain with you long after your journey.
