Day 2: Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi and transfer back to Kigali for your flight or at your hotel
This morning after your breakfast and with your packed lunch, you will drive to the National park offices for a briefing about the dos and the don’ts while on your Gorilla trekking. After that, you will be transferred to the starting point of your Gorilla walk. Please note that Gorilla family allocation depends on your interests, fitness and age though there is no guarantee as these Gorillas keeps moving and changing locations as you walk to them.

Please inform your guide of your interests and he will try to request for the Gorilla family of your choice before you start the trek into the Bwindi forest. Gorilla trekking can be strenuous and a certain level of fitness is required.  Gorilla trekking can take from 30 minutes to three quarters of the day so one needs to prepare for both. Your guide will try to provide information about trees, spices of birds and other wildlife in the forest until you reach a given family of Gorillas.

You will be allowed only one hour of photography and observing mountain Gorillas as they go on with their daily day activities and then trek back to the National Park offices to pick your certificates. You will then drive back to Kigali Rwanda through Katuna or Chanika boarders for your overnight in Kigali town or your International departure flight.
