Following breakfast at the lodge, travel to the Park Headquarters to meet your guides for the day and begin your gorilla tracking experience. Experienced guides and trackers will accompany your party on an early morning trek into the dense rain forest on the mountain slopes. The journey, through dense foliage and up steep climbs, is abundantly rewarded with the lifetime experience of viewing mountain gorillas in their natural habitat. You will have an opportunity to be within metres 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 1000 remaining in the wild. This is an experience you won’t soon forget! Following the trek, return to your accommodation and, if time allows, take a guided afternoon forest or community walk.
Please note: tracking may be fairly strenuous with treks up to six hours or longer, at high altitudes,not uncommon. Also, mountain gorillas are wild animals and, as such, sightings cannot be guaranteed. However viewing success rates are over 90%. Please refer to our information sheet (provided) for more detailed information on Gorilla Tracking requirements, conditions, and considerations.
Following an early breakfast, depart for Mgahinga National Park Headquarters where you will meet your experienced guides and porters and begin your climb up one of the Virunga’s majestic volcanoes. This small park, covering just 38 sq. km, is set on the northern slopes of the Virungas, providing visitors with spectacular views and the chance to stand simultaneously on the borders of Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Depart for Mgahinga National Park’s Batwa Forest to learn about the lives of the Batwa Pygmy tribe. These native people depended entirely upon the forest for survival until 1991, when they were forced by Uganda’s government to relocate based on concerns about the negative impact their activities were having on the park. Meet tribe members and experience the traditions and practices of these unique people, including a visit to the home of the Batwa King and cultural dances performed in local caves.Book Now
