Gorilla tracking

The highlight of a visit to Bwindi or Mgahinga is a magical hour in the company of a family of mountain gorillas. Tracking the gorillas can last from a few hours to a whole day, depending on how far the group has moved since it was observed nesting up the previous evening. Bwindi alone has fifteen habituated gorilla groups that are tracked from trailheads at Buhoma in northwest Bwindi, Ruhija, Nkuringo and Rushaga. Contact time with the gorillas is restricted to one hour and participants must be aged 15 or over.
