DAY 2 - Mountain gorilla trek and Transfer back to Kigali Activity Note: Today’s mountain gorilla trek typically involves two to four hours of walking through thick brush over steep, rugged terrain at elevations ranging from 7,000 to 9,000 feet —and can include exposure to stinging nettles and re ants. As overexposure to humans is harmful to mountain gorillas, contact is limited to one hour—and there is the possibility that they may become agitated and retreat back into the bush in less than our allotted time. Any travelers showing signs of obvious illness may be refused entrance by park authorities. Breakfast: Served buffet-style at the lodge, beginning at 6am. Morning: At about 7:30am, we take a drive of about 30 minutes to the National Park headquarters at to meet your guides for the day.

You will get within meters of the family, and be privileged to spend an hour amongst them. The trekking may be fairly strenuous; up to 3 hours or longer at a relatively high altitude. It is important to bring good hiking boots, long trousers, gloves for protection against stinging nettles, some snacks & sweets (for you, not the gorillas) as well as sufficient water as the rain forest gets hot and humid during the day. You will spend one hour with the gorillas, but it is an hour you will never forget. Depending on the length of our trek, groups will return to our lodge by about 1pm.

What people are saying about Western Region Uganda

Our driver was very nice and knowledgeable which made the experience even better. It's a busy day and many hours by car, but it's worth it. The visit to Lake Mburo National Park was absolutely amazing. Something that can be a little better is information about what is included at breakfast and lunch because we had to make individual orders, it was a bit unclear. Overall a packed day with lots of great impressions.

A totally beautiful, day-filling trip. With good all-round support and good contact. It could only be spent a little more time in the park, which is hardly possible with the great program. All in all a great day!!! Very happy to be back soon!
