Day Two:  Gorilla tracking day

Following breakfast at the lodge, travel to Bwindi Park Headquarters to meet your guides for the day and begin your gorilla tracking experience. Experienced guides and trackers from  the Uganda wildlife Authority  will accompany your party on this  morning trek into the dense rainforest on the mountain slopes. The trackers and guides accompanying you will keep an eye on everyone in the group and do go out of their way to ensure that everyone has the chance for a few clean shots. The trackers will also help to track the gorillas from the point they were last seen the previous day to locate the night nests, and then on to where they are now. This means a lot more hiking but a rewarding and  lifetime experience of viewing mountain gorillas in their natural habitat.  You will have an opportunity to be within meters of these magnificent apes, sharing in their daily lives and experiencing their day-to-day activities.  Mountain gorillas are extremely rare with only an estimated 880 remaining in the wild.  This is an experience you won’t soon forget!

Following the trek, return to the lodge and, depending  on your energy levels and time, you may embark on a guided  nature walk or  take  community walk.
