Today is the D-day. You are up relatively early, enjoy a hearty breakfast to give you the energy you will need to track the famed Mountain Gorilla in the Bwindi mists. With your packed lunch, your guide will take you to the ranger station before 8:00 am for registration and briefing by one of the rangers.
The guides will then take you through the bush, pushing your way through the undergrowth, parting thick creepers, to track the gorillas. The trek can take from half an hour to 5 hours and a reasonable degree of fitness is required as well as a sturdy pair of walking shoes. Sit in the forest among the gorillas, listening to them grumble, and marvel at the sheer size of the dominant male; the Silverback. It is an extraordinary feeling sitting in the dense rainforest knowing you are with a few of the last remaining Mountain Gorillas. It’s important to note that there are only about 800 of these beautiful creatures left in the wild.
