What’s the real story?:

Itinerary Details: One Day Gorilla Trekking Uganda

Day 1: Transfer from Kigali, Kabale, or Kisoro to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.

After an early breakfast, your driver-guide will pick you up from your hotel in Kabale or Kisoro at 6:00 a.m. Transfer to the mighty Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, where you will arrive at the park headquarters at the time of the briefing, after which you will be grouped in a group of 8, though depending on the season, only 2 or 3 or 4 trackers may trek; this is based on the season, be advised to carry enough water for drinking as well as enough snacks or packed lunch because the trek is so strenuous and can take from one to eight hours depending on how these endangered giants move within Bwindi National Park.


You will be accompanied by park rangers to the rainforest to begin your search for mountain gorillas. Trekking can be difficult at times, so a walking stick is recommended. It also necessitates the presence of someone who is physically fit and strong. The trekkers should also bring raincoats and boots because the weather is unpredictable and constantly changing. You will also need to pay $10 to have porters assist you with your luggage.

Your rangers will guide and show you how to handle and behave with the gorillas as soon as you come face to face with them, primarily by standing 6 meters away from them as you enjoy viewing them. It’s impossible to predict how long the journey will take because it is mostly determined by the movement and location of the gentle giants. Immediately after the trek, return to the park headquarters and rejoin the road that leads to Kabale or Kisoro.
