DAY 3: gorilla tracking
6:00 am start your day with preparation, breakfast, and depart the lodge at 7:30 am to head to the sector headquarter where you will attend a briefing on the etiquette of gorilla trekking.
8:00 am you are then taken to your group trekking can be challenging as the ground shall be soggy, wet, and hilly, with twigs. But the result of finding the gorillas will remove the entire memory of battling with the trail.
There are a total of 14 habituated gorilla families in Uganda, all located in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park in the northwest of the country. Each group receives a maximum of 8 visitors per day. About seven of the ten families reside in Northern Bwindi, and three in southern Bwindi; the ones you will be tracking will depend on the location of your lodgings. The gorillas cover large distances overnight, and they are never constantly in one area. The guides will use their knowledge of the gorillas’ habits and information from the previous day to locate the group’s whereabouts. For this reason, one group cannot be said to be easier to track than another. The time taken to track the gorillas varies enormously, from as little as half an hour to as much as 6 hours before returning to the lodge.
When you find the gorillas you will then spend an hour with them a restriction determined by conservation before you are asked to depart from their presence.
Walk to the starting point where your guide will meet you and bring you to your lodge.

We can suggest the best camp for you, based on your preference s and what you’re looking to get out of your experience here.
