Gorilla trekking in Bwindi Forest, followed by a relaxing trip to Lake Bunyonyi.
After breakfast, proceed to the rangers’ post. During the trek, you will be briefed (by a ranger guide) on the dos and don’ts. Following that, you will enter the Bwindi Forest to begin your adventure. This rain forest is breathtakingly beautiful! The area has a dramatic steeply forested landscape and is extremely dense, but it is crisscrossed by numerous animal trails that allow tourists access. The time and terrain vary according to the movements of these great primates.
You will be allowed an hour in the presence of a gorilla group once you have located one. Spending time observing these gentle but endangered giants is an unforgettable experience. Return to your lodging, check out, and take a transfer to Lake Bunyonyi. Lake Bunyonyi is surrounded by lush, green-terraced hills that rise to a height of (2,200 – 2,478m), but it’s the 29 islands of varying shapes and sizes scattered across the water that make it most magical — you could spend all day admiring them.
