Gorilla Trekking Bwindi Forest National Park 1 Day Rwanda Safari Detailed Itinerary
0300 Hours: Depart with breakfast boxes from your hotel in Kigali and transfer you to Uganda Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. The journey travels from Kigali to Cyanika border to Kisoro and on to southern Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park in Rushaga.
Alternatively you will drive to Katuna border to Kabale takes about 3 hours (border processes can take maximum 30 minutes). Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park is another 2 hours driver from Cyanika border or Katuna border and on to Ruhija in the northern sector of Bwindi national park.
All this depends on the availability of gorilla permits in either sector of the park.
0800 Hours: On arrival at your respective tracking sector (Bwindi National Park has four ‘4’ main trailheads where gorilla trekking is always conducted and they include Buhoma, Ruhija, Nkuringo and Rushaga).
You will join the rest of the visitors for the early morning briefing by one of the professional park officials. Each sector has its own habituated gorilla families and each group also offers unique experiences.
You will be briefed on how to behave while you are with the rare mountain gorillas in the habitats and all the rules must be observed at all times as explained to you by the park official.
After briefing, you will be assigned to one habituated gorilla group to track in a group of only (eight) visitors and you will be accompanied by a guide. About 14 gorilla families are available in Bwindi for both gorilla trekking and habituation experience.
Up on getting your respective gorilla troop, you will have only an hour of face to face encounter with these rare wild creatures, take as many photos as you can, explore their general behavior and body gestures.
Your guide will interpret to you the meaning of some of the gestures. A trek to see a group of these fascination primates, requires you to take with you adequate drinking water and energy giving snacks/ packed lunch.
You will hike into the tropical forest following specific trails in search of the allocated gorilla family. The trekking time range from 30 minutes to several hours but the interaction with gorillas last for an hour.
After, you will have lunch and then drive back to Kigali which marks the end of your one day gorilla safari.
