Day 3: Bwindi National Park
An early morning start. Today is the day you trek into the ancient rainforest for an encounter with a family of mountain gorillas. These massive primates are extremely rare - only 600 remain. You will get within metres of the family, and spend time amongst them. Mountain Gorillas are wild animals, as such sightings cannot be guaranteed, however the success rate is well over 90%. The rainforests are high in the mountains, so the hike is quite strenuous and high fitness levels are recommended.
