Daybreaker !

The third day of the the Bwindi Budget Gorilla Trekking safari:- this is the most adventurous day of the safari/tour, because you get to embark on a real jungle trek through the misty thick forest. But gorilla trekking is no stroll in the park. It can take anywhere up to 10 hours to find the elusive creatures in the dense undergrowth.

Guides will lead trekkers up precipitous verges and across rivers, and rusty machetes are used to hack paths through the thick, thorny rain-forest. It is the perfect place to live out a childhood Tarzan fantasy, with vast swathes of trees, vines, branches and bushes surrounding trekkers as they penetrate deep into the rain-forest.

Key Note

When we finally find the gorillas, you’ll spend up-to 1 hour in there presence because that is how much time we are allowed to spend with them. You’ll be required to follow a couple of rules like no flash on your cameras, no sudden noises, no sneezing directly to the animals and other guidelines for a successful trek…. enquire with our team for more info.
