The process of accustoming gorillas to human presence is known as gorilla habituation, which allows a visitor to be able to witness a gorilla’s life up close and personal, is extremely intimate.

Detailed Safari.

Day 1: Pickup and drive to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.

The company representative will meet and greet you at the set pickup location, either Entebbe International Airport or Kampala, the capital city of Uganda. Offering a glass of juice while checking the necessary paperwork and providing pre-trip briefing, you’ll set out on a magnificent 9 to 10 hours’ journey to Bwindi Impenetrable national park.

Pass through the countryside’s undulating hills and rich foliage as well as scattered homesteads. You will stop for lunch enroute and arrive in the park lodge at sunset for refreshments, dinner and restful siesta. Majority of Uganda’s tourist attractions are located in the west and they’ll keep you fascinated throughout the entire drive.

Day 2: Gorilla Habituation adventure.

This day is perfect time to start including gorillas in your memories and stories. After hearty breakfast at the lodge, transfer to the park headquarters for paperwork verification and instructions about what to do and not do while with mountain gorillas. Following a pre-trekking briefing, the ranger guides will trek with you into the gorillas’ territory, where you will be with them for four hours as they play, somersault, laugh, feed and more.

A gorilla group is dominated by females and led by a massive alpha male known as the silverback. Gorillas and humans share almost 95% of their DNA due to their striking similarity.

You will closely watch over the gorillas, listen to their over 25 unique sounds and take notes where need be. Thereafter, you will get lunch break after taking pictures and hear the ranger guides’ comments about the apes, followed by some downtime or an optional cultural engagement with Batwa pygmies who will tell you about their forest life, dance and walk you around the community. After, call it a day with dinner and an evening nap at the lodge.

Day 3: Departure.

Check out of the lodge following morning breakfast and take a transfer to Entebbe or Kampala drop-off location. You will stop along the way at the equator for some rest, lunch and photography. Only thirteen nations on the planet including Uganda are crossed by the equator, which divides the earth into northern and southern hemispheres.
