Day 2: Game Viewing in Lake Mburo, Trasnfer to Bwindi

Day 3: Mountain Gorilla Trek in the Impenetrable Forest
Up relatively early for a hearty breakfast. Before 8:00 am report to the ranger station for registration and a talk by one of the rangers; the guides will then take you through the bush pushing your way through the undergrowth, parting thick creepers, to track the gorillas. A good ammount of fitness is needed as this trek can take from half an hour to 9 hours. Do not forget a sturdy pair of walking shoes for the experience. Sit in the forest among the gorillas, listening to them grumble to each other, and marvel at the sheer size of the dominant male; the silverback. It is an extraordinary feeling sitting in the dense rainforest knowing you are with a few of the last remaining mountain gorillas. Overnight at Gorilla Resort/Mantana Tented Camp. (FB)
