Overnight at Cassia lodge or similar. (Bed and Breakfast)

Today you will continue to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest for two nights. Bwindi is home to over half of the worlds mountain gorilla population. Interacting with these gentle giants is one of the most moving experiences that Africa has to offer and should not be missed! The ancient rainforest of Bwindi spans 321 sq km and boasts 90 mammal species, including a range of primates, as well as 23 Albertine Rift endemic bird species, including the African Green Broadbill, the Bar Tailed Trogon and many others.

Overnight at Bweza Gorilla Lodge or similar. (Breakfast, Lunch and dinner).

Today after an energizing breakfast, you will embark on your gorilla trek. Before 8 am report to the ranger station for registration and briefing by one of the rangers; the guides will then lead you through the undergrowth, parting thick creepers, to track the gorillas.

The trek can take anywhere from half an hour to 7 hours – a reasonable degree of fitness is required as well as a sturdy pair of walking boots. It is an extraordinary feeling sitting in the dense rainforest knowing you are with a few of the last remaining mountain gorillas.

Later in the afternoon, you will go for the Batwa (pygmies) cultural experience. While here, you will learn of their ways of living. Time permitting, you can engage in optional activities including; community walks, visit tea plantations, birding, visit local schools, engage in women activities like weaving, cooking lessons, tailoring, cultural dances to mention but a few.

It is the best place in the country to see Eland Antelope, Zebra, Topi, Impala, and Acacia. The five lakes within the park attract hippos, crocodiles, and a variety of water birds, while fringing swamps hide black and yellow papyrus gonalek. Arriving in the park for lunch you can rest before exploring the park on game drive for the rest of the afternoon.
