Day 7


After an early breakfast, guests will drive to Chameleon Hill Lodge, which is the base for gorilla tracking for the next 2 nights. Arrive at the lodge for a late lunch and enjoy the rest of the afternoon at leisure, or take walks in and around the lodge.The Bwindi Impenetrable National Park (BINP) is a sanctuary for colobus monkeys, chimpanzees, and many birds. It is most notable for the 340 Bwindi gorillas, half of the world’s population of the critically endangered mountain gorillas. It is accessible only on foot and is a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization-designated World Heritage Site.

Day 8


After an early and energizing breakfast, embark on the gorilla trek. Before 08h00, report to the ranger station for registration and briefing by one of the rangers; the guides will then lead guests through the undergrowth, parting thick creepers, to track the gorillas.The trek can take anywhere from half an hour to 7 hours – a reasonable degree of fitness is required as well as a sturdy pair of walking boots. It is an extraordinary feeling sitting in the dense rainforest with these last remaining mountain gorillas – sadly there are only about 650 of them left. Only one hour is allowed with the gorillas before returning to the base station.

Day 9
