Day 2: Gorilla Trekking experience in Bwindi
After your early morning breakfast, assemble at the park head office with your packed lunch and drinking water for briefing from the senior park ranger guide. You will then set off to the starting point and trek the gentle giants through thick and dark vegetation as you hike high and low slippery slopes. Be observant enough to listen to the vocals of the gorillas as they communicate which will make it easy for you to follow them up. The only one magical hour you will be with the huge giant apes, will be the most amazing you will forever tell. The guide will tell you more about them and their habits and you will take as many photos as you desire. Afterwards, return to the lodge for relaxation.
