Day 2: Mountain Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi Forest
Very early in the morning after breakfast, report to the Park headquarters of Bwindi National park for briefing from the ranger guide; from here you will hit the jungle for mountain gorillas trekking. Keep an eye out for their voices and hear them out grumble and the young as they swing from tree to tree, and wonder about the sheer size of the dominant male; the silverback. It is a unique feeling sitting in the thick rainforest knowing you are with few of the last remaining mountain gorillas. If you have the energy this afternoon, take a guided walk on the Munyaga River trail, which involves crystal clear waterfalls, a variety of flora, butterfly species and birds. The other option is taking a guided community walk among the Batwa inhabitants of the park. Return to Buhoma Community Bandas/ Gorilla Resort FB.
