Description

overview

Come face to face with the Silverback Mountain Gorilla of the Bwindi impenetrable forest in South-Western Uganda. This trek is a fly in and out the package with two nights in the Buhoma sector of Bwindi. This mysterious and awesome forest is a true African jungle, and is so called because the dense undergrowth, vines and other vegetation make it almost “impenetrable”. The time taken to find the Gorillas varies with the weather and terrain and once you sight the Gorillas you will have one hour to view.
