Dinner and overnight at Gorilla Resort.

Day 2: Tracking Gorillas.

In the morning you will have breakfast and with packed lunch you will transfer to the park headquarters for briefing. Later at 9:00 am you will set off along the tracks into the thick forest to search for these great apes. Depending on the movement of these humble giants the walk might take between 2-9 hours before you encounter the gorillas. The walk is tiresome however meeting these great apes and spending some time with them while looking deep into their expressive brown eyes, is an exhilarating and heartbreaking wildlife encounter that Africa has to offer. Dinner and overnight at Gorilla Resort.

Day 3: Head to Kampala.

In the morning have breakfast, then load your luggage to start your return to Kampala. It will be a long day’s drive through the “Switzerland of Africa”, the same very scenic green hills you passed on your way in.
