DAY 2 – Gorilla trekking in Bwindi Forest


Rise up early for breakfast and head to the ranger station for briefing. Remember to carry your lunch and drinking water to quench your thirst as you trek to see the gorillas. The time of finding the gorillas is unpredictable because of their regular movements. Carry on walking through the thick forest where you may have the chance of seeing other primates like the olive baboons, vervet monkeys, grey checked mangabey and so much more. The gorillas may get to see you before you do because they are very keen with foreigners in there environ. When you finally get to see them, wait to take there pictures because the ranger guide has to first observe them then finally he will advise you to take the pictures. Observe there movement and the way they play from the vines. Return the the lodge and relax
