Day 2: Gorilla Tracking in Bwindi National Park
Bwindi Impenetrable National Park for Gorillas Tracking in the southern part. While most of today’s forests are no more than 12,000 years old, Bwindi’s vegetation has been weaving itself into tangles for over 25,000 years, in the process accumulating a lengthy species list. This includes 310 species of butterflies, 51 reptiles, 200 trees, 88 moths and an exceptional 120 species of mammals including 10 primates. The latter includes chimpanzee, L’Hoest’s, red-tailed and blue monkey, black and white Colobus, baboon, and Bwindi’s most famous resident, the mountain gorilla. Bwindi is a prime destination for bird- watchers. Its 350 species include seven which are IUCN red data listed and 90% of all Albertine rift endemics species which are difficult or impossible to see in any other part of East Africa.
After breakfast, assemble at the park headquarters for the briefing before embarking on your gorilla trekking in Bwindi national park. Time is taken to find the gorillas can range from 30 minutes to 6 hours so it’s very advisable to carry packed lunch and drinking water. After tracking, have lunch and hit the road on a 3 hours drive back to Kigali, arriving late in the evening for departure or drop off at your hotel.
