Day 2: Gorilla Tracking i Bwindi National Park
After enjoying an early breakfast, you set off gorilla tracking. Trekking through the steep, densely forested hills and then finally coming across the gorillas camouflaged in the vegetation is an inspiring and privileged moment. Tracking in the Bwindi forest requires stamina and can often take most of the day. Alternatively there are other activities and excursions on offer in and around the national park:
Take a guided walk in the rainforest, home to several endemic bird species, clouds of butterflies and rare plant life. This walk offers excellent photographic opportunities and our knowledgeable guide will provide a great insight into this globally important habitat. We stay at Gorilla Mist Camp or buhoma community camp. (B,L,D)
