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. If you finish your gorilla tracking early and if you are still energized, you can choose to take a community walk and check how the communities live in that area.
