 Many gorilla trekkers prefer hiring porters to help with extra luggage. Gorilla tracking involves going through difficult terrain and depends on the location of the gorilla group you are following. Once you are with the apes, take as many photos as you can as you are only allowed one hour with the gorillas.  Mountain Gorillas can be very playful, curious and will often come close to you.

Listen to the guides instructions and always stay calm. The requirements and rules for gorilla trekking will guide you while with the gorilla family.

After completing the activity, you should head back to the starting point where you will meet the driver to take you back to the lodge for lunch and rest. The afternoon is time to visit the Batwa Pygmy community. These former inhabitants of Bwindi forest were relocated outside the park to avoid conflicts with the forest creatures. There cultural dances, activities and history will fascinate you as will the several projects started to help them adjust to life outside the forest. Dinner and overnight stay on full board basis.
