Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

In the afternoon you can just relax and take in the fresh air or take a forest walk, which is a nice way to warm up before the Gorilla tracking.

Day 2: Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park

Early breakfast is served this morning before a briefing from your guide. Tracking commences every morning from the park headquarters at 8.00 am. The gorillas we track belong to one of the 'habituated' family groups in Northern Bwindi. For several years each group has undergone an extremely delicate process that has gradually made them used to the presence of humans. Experienced guides will accompany the tracking, many of who have been involved in the habituation process themselves. Once the gorillas are located, the group will be allowed a maximum of one hour with them.
