Get your registration and briefing done in the forest headquarters before you start your tracking tour. Experienced rangers are sent into the forest to check the location of the gorillas before the guests are sent out. After all the allocation is done, you will be escorted by the tracking guides who will take you through the lush green forest of Bwindi. This activity usually takes from 2-8 hours because it depends on the gorilla family location from the headquarters. Once you track them down, you have one hour to watch them play, feed and communicate. By evening, spend some time with the Batwa which gives you an opportunity to enjoy hiking in the forest with the local peoples. You will be escorted by a Batwa guide who will provide you all the details about the forest and it habitats. Get to learn about how the Batwa people lived and hunted in traditional way.
