Day Two- Day 2: Encounter the Gentle Giants- Mountain Gorillas
It is D-day!
Preparations begin quite early with a quick breakfast to enable you catch up with the group. The hiking and tracking is both beautiful, tiresome and adventurous.
The terrain can be treacherous and muddy while the tracking can take anywhere from two hours to eight hours. But it is all worth it as you come face to face with these dinosaurs of the wild described as the amazing “gentle giants.”
The gentle habits of these incredible creatures defy their size. You will be guided on how to behave in their presence as well as how to capture your lifetime memorable photos while in their presence. You are restricted to only one hour with the gorillas because of safety and habituation reasons. But again, it is all worth it.
You may also see other primates as well as monkeys, butterflies birds and the incredible mist covered terrain. You will break to take your packed lunch. After tracking, depart for Kabale town.
Dinner and overnight at Cephas Inn, Kabale.
