Gorilla Tours, Bwindi Gorilla Forest
The 3 days gorilla tour begins and ends in Kampala. This safari will take you to track gorillas in Bwindi forest, being the most biologically diverse areas on earth. Its not common, precious flora sustains approximately half of the world’s population of mountain gorillas. Mere seeing that some of the last remaining 700 mountain gorillas in the world is a fabulous experience. Bwindi comprises of four habituated families and the gorillas there live in thicker tropical forest and tracking is more difficult because the hillsides are steeper. Staying for a night can be organized at Gorilla Resort or Buhoma home stead or for clients on safari.
Apart from tracking, there are several activities that can be carried out inside the park by clients with the help of our experienced guides like: butterfly watching, research on flora, birding plus hiking. This enables clients to pass time as they wait for their pre-arranged gorilla date.
