Day 3: Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

After breakfast, you will continue to the rangers’ post where you will receive a briefing from a 7 Days Rwanda Uganda Tour ranger guide on the do’s and don’ts during gorilla trekking. Thereafter, you will enter the gorilla sanctuary for your adventure and encounter. The beauty of this rainforest is spectacular!

The area offers a dramatic, steeply forested landscape and is incredibly dense but crisscrossed by numerous animal trails allowing access to tourists. The time taken and the terrain vary with the movements of these great primates.

Once you have located a gorilla group, you will be allowed an hour in their presence. The thrill of spending time observing these gentle but endangered giants is unforgettable. You will return to the accommodation, and take some rest after a strenuous day.
