Kanungu

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

Hotel: Buhoma Lodge or Standard or similar

After breakfast, your tour guide will lead you to experience what many people define as a life changing event. Expect to walk along distance in steep sloppy terrain and muddy conditions sometimes with fog in the rain forest before you encounter any Mountain gorillas. But it will be worthwhile as you observe them closely while they play, eat and rest with their families. Gorillas are found at an altitude between 1160m and 2607m in verdant sloppy vegetation. These wild animals are very entertaining and peaceful and getting up close and personal with these gentle creatures is a unique, unforgettable and emotional experience for many of our visitors. However, seek advice from the tour guides on how best to relate with them to avoid any acts that may tend to spoil your unforgettable interaction with them. Tourism in Uganda is one of the biggest foreign earnings therefore, a portion of the revenue collected from tourism goes to protecting and preserving the National Parks such as Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, which thus justifies the entrance and tracking fees charged by the Uganda Wildlife Authority / Ministry of Tourism Ministry.
