Day 2: Bwindi Gorilla Tracking Tour.

You will have an early morning breakfast and head to the park headquarters for briefing from the Uganda Wildlife Authority officials. After briefing, you will be allocated into a Gorilla Tracking group and together with a guide, you will enter into the forest in search of these gentle giants. Once you locate the gorillas, you will be allowed one hour with them as you take photos and observe them. Remember to pack food and mineral water, insect repellent, sun screen and hut. The gorilla tracking experience can take a few hours or the whole day depending on the movement of these primates. The gorilla trekking experience is a bit demanding but well worth the effort.  You will return to the lodge for lunch and then be transferred back to Kigali and either be dropped at your lodge in Kigali or at the airport to catch up with your evening flight back home.
