1 Day Gorilla Trekking Uganda

This 1 Day Gorilla Trekking Uganda is a spceial gorilla tour taking you to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Park in Uganda where more than half of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas can be located. This gorilla trekking safari starts from Kigali in Rwanda leading you through the beautiful towns of Kabale and Kisoro towns located on the beautiful edges of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.

Your 1 Day Gorilla Trekking Uganda tour includes a gorilla permit costing USD $600 and fully covered ground transportation from Kigali to Bwindi and fro. Bwindi Impenetrable National park was opened in 1993 and covers an area of 33 sq meters. It has got 4 habituated gorilla groups including; Habinyanja, Mubare, Nkuringo, and Rushegura among others.  There are also 12 gorilla families that are open to trekking by the tourists in this park.

Besides the mountain gorillas in the park, there are several mammals in existence here which include; elephants, 27 species of chameleon, 348 bird species, 220 butterflies, a lot of flora are found in the park including; 1000 flowering plants, 163 tree species, 104 species of ferns and very much more.

At about 3:30 am, you will be picked up by your driver guide from Kigali to get on a 4 hours journey to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda. The long hour journey is worth 176 km and we cross over to Uganda via the Katuna/Chanika border entering the park through the southern sector of Nkuringo. On our arrival at the park headquarters, we shall have to attend to a briefing exercise and there-after join with our group members to start the actual gorilla trek in the misty and cold Bwindi Forest (be sure to carry a sort of warm sweater to keep you warm). Also, be sure to carry enough water for drinking as well as enough snacks or packed lunch since the trek is so strenuous and can take from one to eight hours depending on how these endangered giants move within the natural habitat.

Gorilla trekking can be tough some times, so one needs a walking stick. It also needs someone who is strong enough and physically fit. The trekkers should also carry raincoats and boots since the weather is unpredictable and just changes. You will also need to use the porters to help you carry your luggage at a cost of $10. The moment you come eye to eye with the gorillas, your rangers will guide and show you how to handle and behave while with them, mainly by standing 6 meters away from the gorillas as you enjoy viewing them. It’s always hard to tell how long the trek will take since in most cases it is dependent on the movement and location of the gentle giants.

Immediately, after the trek, continue to the park headquarters and start your journey back to Kigali arriving late in the evening to prepare your next day flight plan arrangement and that will be the end of your 1 Day gorilla trekking Uganda adventure
