A day in the forest with the chimpanzees ” Chimp Habituation Experience ” in collaboration with the Jane Goodall Institute. Departure with a ranger, before sunrise to reach the chimpanzee nests before they leave them.

Muzabajiro : breathtaking views of the Bwindi forest, the rift valley and the Virungas national park in Congo
Meet the Gorillas (Gorilla Trek)
Meet the Gorillas (2 meetings over 2 days)
Accommodation at Gorilla Forest Camp.

We walk to discover gorillas with trackers and Rangers. The group includes a maximum of 6 people. This Walk can be trying because the trails and slopes are steep and slippery and the trek can last from 2 hours to a whole day. This walk is not technical but requires good physical condition.

When a family of gorillas is spotted by the trackers, we approach calmly and without making unwanted noises. Gorillas are not aggressive animals, they are peaceful and fearful. It is a moving moment, an encounter that we remember forever , to be a few meters from these distant cousins, many of whose attitudes are close to ours. There are two groups of mountain gorillas accustomed to the presence of man, the ‘Mubare’ and the ‘Katendegyere’. The ‘Mubare’ are the most sociable.

After lunch, transfer to the Kihihi airfield for an Aerolink flight aboard a 4 to 12 seat bush plane, to Entebbe – Kampala (2:05 p.m. / 3:55 p.m.), in connection with your return flight.
