Day 3

Gorilla Trekking

Today is the real highlight for many people - the day you trek for gorillas! You will be put into a group matching your rough physical fitness by the park authorities. Some gorillas are nearby and others can be a long hike away. Once you find the family, you have one hour to revel in this incredible experience, watching them at rest and play. Afterwards you'll return to the lodge for a well-earned rest.

Day 4

Optional Second Trek, Walk Or Community Visit

If you have bought a second gorilla permit, then this is your day to head off into the mountains again to spend another magical hour with the gorillas. Otherwise it's a day to relax, take a guided forest walk or perhaps a visit a local village. Either way you'll have a full and rewarding day in Bwindi.
