Preparation for gorilla trekking
Because Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park is hilly, hiking boots are recommended for a fantastic gorilla trekking experience.

You must also wear thick cotton gloves, and a raincoat is required due to the fact that Bwindi is a rain forest where it can rain at any time of day.

It is also customary to tip your guide and ranger, as well as anyone else who has helped your stay more comfortable during your African vacation.
It’s important to note that this itinerary excludes optional activities. It also excludes the cost of the gorilla permit (s), which is $700, £495, or €575. East African Community Nationals and citizens pay 250000UGX.

Gorilla trekking Excursion in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park
Get up at 6:00 a.m. to get ready for the long day ahead. At 6:20 a.m., breakfast is provided. Our safari expert picks you up from the accommodation and drives you to the park headquarters for a briefing, which normally takes place at 7:00 a.m. The endangered mountain gorillas of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park are well-known here. Because mountain gorillas are sociable creatures who live in groups, you will be assigned to one of these groups during this briefing. Additionally, you will be accompanied by a range guide who will guard and guide your group as you trek through the dense forest. Because these gorillas move around and you must go on an excursion to discover them, this activity can last many hours, frequently 3-6 or longer. Finally, you meet your hosts, a family of gorillas led by a massive silverback. Several mothers and their amusing babies are most likely present. There will be some brazen juvenile males in front of you, but don't worry, the ranger guide will tell you everything you need to know. Oh, and don't forget to take as many pictures as you can, but only with non-flash cameras, because these guys despise being blasted in the face. You retire for evening rest at your lodge.

Transfer to Queen Elizabeth National Park
The day before, you had a unique meeting with your hosts, the endangered mountain gorillas. You're about to bid the park farewell in order to embark on another fantastic savannah adventure expedition. You serve breakfast at 6:15 a.m., and the journey begins from there. The length of your travel is determined by the gorilla region to which you were originally assigned. For example, Rushaga or Nkuringo to Queen Elizabeth takes 6 hours. Furthermore, it takes 4 hours to get from Buhoma to Katunguru, and the same amount of time to travel from Ruhija. As a result of all of this, you'll almost certainly go on a late-afternoon boat trip along the raging Kazinga waterway. When you arrive in Queen Elizabeth, you settle into the provided safari home and have lunch. However, depending on the time of the boat excursion, you may be able to eat lunch after the activity.
A wealth of bird species, some endemic and others migrating, can be seen along the board cruise. What a treat for bird watchers, since one thing is certain: this channel is a birder's paradise. Great white pelicans, saddle-billed stocks, fly catchers, open-billed stocks, Egyptian geese, and other water birds are among them. Along the beaches of the Nile, crocodiles bask in the sun. The elephant herd comes to the banks to satisfy their thirst, while the hippos spurt water in their schools. Meanwhile, the cape buffalo cool off in the life-giving waters of the river from the heat of the day.

Game drive and Transfer back to Airport
Breakfast is given at 7:00 a.m., after which you will depart for the elating dame drive on the Kasenyi plains. Impalas, warthogs, elephants, lions, and hyenas frequent Queen Elizabeth National Park. Waterbucks, dykers, and snakes, among other wild species, can be seen. You will visit the Ishasha, which is home to some of Africa's climbing lions, as previously mentioned. The location is blessed with enormous acacia trees with wide brunches that aren't too tall, allowing for this type of climbing. Several bird species including ground hornbills, yellow kites, African fish eagles, and Egyptian vultures, which prey on carcasses exist here.
You may visit the Kasenyi community if time permits, although this is an optional activity. The purpose of community walks is to introduce you to the local culture. As a result, it's nice to give the locals during such visits, such as by purchasing curios or providing scholastic assistance, among other things. This activity, however, is optional and is dependent on your return flight time. From here, you return to the Lodge, park, and begin your drive back to the airport. We are grateful for your visit, and we trust you had a wonderful experience.
