4 Day Gorilla and Chimpanzee Trekking Safari

This  4 Day Gorilla and Chimpanzee Trekking Safari Holiday in the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, a habitat with a minimum of 400 mountain gorillas which is close to half of the 880 numbers that are known to thrive in the world. The magical hills offer impressive scenery and a sightseeing experience. Kibale Forest National Park is one of the most attractive national parks in Uganda with varied tracts of tropical rain forest and several animals. The park covers 795 km2 of a rain forest, swamps, rivers, and a few areas of grassland. It is home to more than 1,450 chimpanzees protected inside the park and in total thirteen primate species. Children have to be 15 years and above to be able to track the Chimpanzees, if you have children below 15 years they can engage in an educative forest walk.

The briefing session lasts for approximately 30 minutes after which you are allocated a gorilla family and a park ranger to lead you to the Jungle, where you will have either a lengthy or short tracking period depending on how far the apes have moved. This can be roughly 4 or more hours, with one separate hour given to you upon finding the creatures, to watch the giant silverback, mothers feeding their young ones, and the entire family play, fight and grumble with each other, only waiting for a silverback to come and settle the dispute. Thereafter, you will have lunch, and then you will visit the Rushaga Batwa community where you will visit the native villages and many more interesting places in the community as well as engage in different dances, traditional songs, etc. before getting back to the lodge for dinner and overnight.
