Chimps and humans share more than 98% of their DNA, making them our closest relatives. They’re social and intelligent, and the Kibale Forest is the best place in the world to see these remarkable creatures in their native habitat.  But there are a dozen other primate species living in these verdant forests and this morning’s walking safari offers a chance to see a number of them including red colobus, black & white colobus, grey-cheeked mangabey and red-tailed monkeys as well as olive baboons.

Day 7:  Gorilla Tracking in Bwindi impenetrable National park.

After a hearty breakfast, this unforgettable day begins at the Ranger Station for an important briefing from a Park Ranger. Originally created in 1942 as the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Reserve, this pristine National Park encompasses 80,000 acres of scrambled vegetation and primeval forest draped over deep valleys and imposing mountain ridges. Recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site for its exceptional biodiversity, Bwindi is perhaps most famous for having nearly half of the world’s critically-endangered mountain gorilla population.

However living in complex social groups, there are fewer than 40 gorilla families in Bwindi – with just about a dozen that have been habituated for human contact. With the number of daily permits and the size of each trekking group firmly set by Park regulations, today’s experience promises an emotionally charged and intimately personal encounter with these amazing primates; sharing nearly 98% of their DNA with humans, gorillas are (after chimpanzees) our second-closest living relative.  Accompanied by an experienced tracker, you’ll hike into the Impenetrable Forest to catch up with your assigned gorilla family.

After locating them, you’ll have an amazing opportunity to spend about one hour watching quietly as the gorillas go about their daily routine. A Park Ranger is at your side to offer insight and answer questions. Of course, videos and photos (without flash) are permitted. As your time with them unfolds, you’ll be able to discern their unique personalities and begin to unravel their complex social relationships. Moved and possibly even humbled by this experience,  8 Days Best Uganda Gorilla, you’ll retrace your steps along the forested slopes to the Ranger Station, and then return to our luxury camp for dinner and a peaceful overnight at Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp. (Luxury Option) or Buhoma Haven Lodge (Midrange Option). Meal plan Breakfast, lunch and Dinner.
