Gorilla Adventure – Day 3
March 14: Bwindi
Gorilla Tracking in the Impenetrable Forest. Tracking takes 3 to 10 trekking in Bwindi. There is an early morning entry into a gorilla sanctuary.
The rainforest is a spectacular, heavily vegetated, and dense landscape that is crisscrossed by numerous animal trails, which allows trekkers to enter the depths of the forest. This park is best known for the fascinating Gorillas; where in the park you go, and how long you are in each location varies according to the movements of these fantastic apes. The thrill of spending time with and observing these gentle giants is a rare and moving adventure that will leave you with long lasting memories of a truly unique experience.
After spending the morning watching and photographing these shy and peaceful animals, the group will return to the Silverback Lodge to spend the afternoon and evening.
