Day 9: Gorilla Tracking

An early start will see you transfer to the Park headquarters for a Gorilla trekking briefing .Your guide will give you highlights of specific details about the way of life of the gorillas you will be tracking. After this, you will enter the forest which is home to half of the world’s mountain gorillas. Mountain gorillas are one of the rarest animals on earth; fewer than 700 remain and there is none in captivity. There are about 340 mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, almost half the world’s population of these huge, yet gentle and endearing primates. Typically, they are found in family groups of between five and fifteen individuals with one dominant male, known as a Silverback, which is the largest and strongest of the group. Mountain gorillas are the largest of all apes and a mature male can stand over six feet in height, and weigh in excess of 400 pounds. Dominance among the group’s males appears to be determined by size and strength. It is the dominant male who decides when the group will move, stop, rest, and sleep. Mountain gorilla groups are stable, cohesive units that spend most of their time on the ground, “knuckle-walking” through the forest within their respective home ranges.

Despite their immense size and strength, gorillas are typically gentle beings, intelligent and dignified. They are endlessly patient with each other and disputes are settled quickly. They are primarily vegetarian, with the leaves, shoots, and stems of a wide range of rain forest plants making up a majority of their diet. Locating the gorillas can take a few hours or the whole day depending on how far they have moved from the place they spent the previous night. For conservation purposes, time allowed with the Gorillas is 1 hour. Once you have completed the trek you will return to the lodge, for a well-earned rest.
