Day 2: Gorilla Tracking Adventure
Wake up and prepare for the unforgettable experience. You will have breakfast to transfer to the park headquarters for briefing before setting off to the forest in search for gorillas. The guide will brief you and at 9:00 am you will set off to the forest for these apes. The time taken searching these humble Giant apes is unpredictable, however, it ranges between 2-9 hours depending on their movement. Tracking goes through steep rocks climbing up and down before you find Gorillas Camouflaged in thick vegetation. However, the thrill of encountering these giant primates erases the poor memories you went through in trying to find them. Dinner and over night at Gorilla Forest Camp/ Gorilla Mist Camp.
Day 3: Return to Kampala.
After these extra-ordinary experiences we have to go back to Kampala. Have breakfast and hit the road to Kampala with lots of scenic viewing enroute. You will have a stop in any of the districts for lunch to reach Kampala in the evening.
