Drive from Buhoma to Ruhija for gorilla tracking – The Early morning two hour drive from Northern Bwindi impenetrable national park to the eastern Bwindi impenetrable national park is one of the most beautiful drives as you start your day at 5 am with a wake-up call with one of Africa’s top coffee with the moonlight as you pack up to get ready in the dark clouds of one of Africa’s top tropical rain forests famous for mountain gorillas in their natural habitat, then start your breakfast at around 5:30 am as the moon light is still on until you depart at 6 am to start making your way to the national park’s highest altitude areas sitting at 2600 meters above the sea level.
At around 6:30-6:45 am the African sunrise will explode from the clouds over the misty forest cover as you climb up through the huge forest cover to the starting point in ruhija. Ruhija which is also the Northern part of the park is a home to four mountain gorillas which is available for tracking to visitors.
Due to the high demand of Buhoma gorilla permits sometimes clients have an option to take the drive as there are many options available for mountain gorilla tracking.
Ruhija is one the isolated sectors in Bwindi when it comes to gorilla tracking in Bwindi impenetrable national park so there are no luxury accommodation facilities as of now but for future please contact Great adventure safaris for updates on new developments.
Due to the high altitude there is usually enough food for the mountain gorillas in the eastern part of the park so the gorilla movements are low compared to the other sectors.
The view as you drive to ruhija is insane and one of the most beautiful landscapes in uganda and you can really get good photographs of the rain forest and on a clear day you can see the Virunga volcanoes.
Sometimes clients after gorilla tracking will love to continue to Lake Bunyonyi for relaxation after the once in a lifetime experience with the endangered mountain gorillas.
