Today is the highlight of this safari! You wake up very early and have your breakfast at 6:30am. Afterwards your driver guide will take you to the park headquarters for a briefing about the do’s and don’ts about gorilla trekking. The trek takes about 2-8 hours through the impenetrable forest of Bwindi to look for these gentle giants in their natural habitat. After finding them you are allowed a full hour of interacting with them, watching them and enjoying this remarkable experience. Your advised to carry rain jackets because of the rain forest you walk through, carry long sleeved clothes too if possible and don’t forget a minimum of 2 liters drinking water.

After you will return at the lodge for lunch and relaxation. In the evening you will visit the Batwa community and learn about their local ways of surviving. These are the people who used to live in the forest with apes before it was conserved as a protected area, so you will learn about how they used to live with wildlife.
