DAY 6: MOUNTAIN GORILLA IN BWINDI
Today you will go on foot into the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest to find the mountain gorillas. At the starting point, you will be given a thorough briefing about the day's activity, divided into small groups and assigned to a gorilla family. Earlier in the morning, trackers have entered the forest to locate the gorillas and report back to their main guide. Today's hike can take anywhere from 2-8 hours depending on where the gorillas live.
Once you find the gorillas, you have one hour with them before you have to pull away. Sitting a few meters away from a silverback weighing almost 200 kilos, with 98,3% human DNA, is an absolutely indescribable experience. You leave the gorillas and enjoy the packed lunch outside before starting the journey home.
