Day 3: In Bwindi Impenetrable National Park (The Ultimate Gorilla Experience)
After Breakfast, we will take a short drive to the Park headquarters for a briefing before setting off for mountain gorilla trekking. You will have a general briefing on the behaviours of the mountain gorillas as well as the strict rules that you are supposed to obey. Thereafter, you will be allocated to one of the habituated groups (& a guide walk) in the sector, which only welcomes 8 visitors a day to minimize behavioural disturbance and the risk of exposure to human-borne diseases. You will hike into the forest and once you have located them, you only have one hour to take photos, film, selfies, etc. Thereafter, you will walk back to the starting point.
Note:, you are supposed to carry with you repellents, use trekking shoes, and carry a rain jacket since the weather is unpredictable, no flashes are allowed and each person must carry a minimum of 2 litres of mineral water. Since we cannot tell where the mountain gorillas will be waiting for you, you are also requested to take packed lunch (the hike can take from 2hr to 8hr in altitudes exceeding 7.600 feet).
