These engaging apes, our closest living relative, are great fun to watch as they play and fight in the fruiting trees. Your experienced guides will introduce you to the different members of the chimp families, as well as the birds and plant life of the forest. The trails through the forest are generally easy to navigate and Rangers will always accompany you.
In the afternoon, you will visit the neighboring Bigodi Wetlands Sanctuary. Cleverly constructed boardwalks lead you through Papyrus that towers above your head in Bigodi Wetlands Sanctuary. With over 130 bird species, multi-colored butterflies, eight different species of primates and the rare, semi-aquatic Sitatunga (antelope), this is community tourism at its best.

GORILLA TRACKING IN BWINDI (6 Days Highlights of Uganda Luxury Safari)
You will be up early on the morning of your Gorilla Tracking for a good breakfast in preparation for the day’s physical activity. You will report for registration at the Uganda Wildlife Authority ranger station before 08:00 AM. After a briefing by the rangers, your gorilla trek will start. The trek usually takes between three and six hours, therefore, a reasonable degree of fitness is required, as well as a strong pair of walking boots or shoes.
Once you have located the gorilla family, you will be asked to leave all your belongings to one side, and approach the gentle giants, just with your camera. The guides will interpret the animals’ behavior and advise on what you are watching. Females and their young, young males and even a dominant Silverback may be seen: feeding, playing, interacting with each other, or just sleeping! You will never forget your encounter with the gorillas. They will be quite curious to see you! You are allowed exactly one hour with the gorillas before returning to base.
