Day 3, Night 3
Bwindi National Park
Following breakfast you will transfer to the park headquarters for the briefing before you set off through the designated tracks, used exclusively to control our impact on the environment while searching for these impressive and humble giants.
We take packed lunches for the trip as it is difficult to determine how long it will take for us to meet up with these giant primates. The time taken might range between 2 to as much as 5 hours depending on the movement of the primates.
A reasonable degree of fitness is required as well as a sturdy pair of walking shoes. The hike can be quite tiresome, but an encounter with these gentle relatives of man simply erases any thought of weariness and of the walk to get there. They are simply awe-inspiring! We return down the mountain slope for Bwindi, a well-earned dinner and overnight in comfortable accommodation.
