    Bwindi Park

    Early morning after breakfast, you will meet with the ranger guide for briefing on tracking procedure, and then set off for gorilla tracking with a packed lunch, plenty of water and rain gear. (You are advised to be physically fit) You will follow intertwining trails that lead deep into the impenetrable forest until you reach the GREAT GIANTS (the Gorillas).
    The moment you find these majestic creatures, all the fatigue will be forgotten. It can take anywhere between 1-6 hours and become very tiresome when to climbing altitudes of about 7500 feet, but it is very interesting moment seeing the Gorilla’s behaviors in their natural habitats; they are closely related to human beings, and you will be allowed to spend 1 hour with them.
    On your way to the Gorillas you may be able to see more other primates, butterflies and many tree species – it is an interesting experience rated as number one wild life experience in Africa. After that long fatigue you return to our accommodation for relaxation, supper and overnight.
