Thereafter, proceed to Bwindi whereby you will arrive in the late afternoon.

Overnight at Ruhondeza or Ride 4 A Woman (B-L-D)

After early morning breakfast, drive to the park headquarters where you will be briefed by the park rangers about what to do and not do while in the park, also you will be divided into groups of eight. Afterwards start off gorilla trekking these gentle giants as directed by the rangers. Get up close and personal with the mountain gorillas in their natural habitat. Hikers will love the tracking in the beautiful ecosystem of the park. Expect to walk a long distance in steep and muddy conditions, sometimes with rain overhead, before you encounter any gorillas. But it will definitely be worthwhile as you observe them closely while they eat, play and rest. A unique and unforgettable experience!

Overnight at Ruhondeza or Ride 4 A Woman (B-L-D)
