                            THREE DAYS GORILLA TREKKING SAFARI

Detailed itinerary.

Day 1: Transfer to Bwindi
Today after your breakfast, you will embark on your journey to the famous Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. This park is mostly famous for the rare mountain gorillas despite the fact that it is also a home to other animals like bush bucks, antelopes, forest duiker and a variety of bad species. The drive to the park is incredibly scenic, passing through various local villages and the lush green countryside & hills which characterize so much of south western Uganda.
This forest has one of the richest ecosystems in Africa and the diversity of species is a feature of the park. It provides habitat for 120 species of mammals, 348 species of birds, 220 species of butterflies, 27 species of frogs, chameleons, geckos and many endangered species. Floristically Bwindi is amongst the most diverse forests in East Africa, with more than 1,000 flowering plant species including 163 species of trees and 104 species of ferns.

Day 2: Gorilla experience
Today you go to track the rare mountain gorillas. After a briefing from your ranger guide, begin tracking the mountain gorillas through the ancient Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. This can take a couple of hours or a whole day depending on the location of the apes. Keep an eye out for forest species such as buffaloes, elephants, black fronted duikers and bush bucks. It is a humbling experience to stand just meters from man’s distant cousins as they eat rest, play and bond with their young ones. Follow the mountain gorillas as they range freely in the impenetrable forest and discover their gorgeous natural habitat and the many species they share it with. After you will slowly drive back to the lodge for dinner and overnight stay.
