Day 3: Gorilla Tracking and cross to Uganda (Lake Mutanda)

Spend a morning trekking to find the mountain gorillas of Volcanoes National Park. Tracking gorillas is a magical experience; some say it bigger than any other wildlife encounters. Your guide will drive you to the park offices, here you will meet your guides and rangers for a briefing and other members that will track gorillas. When you meet a family, you are allowed an hour with the gorillas. When you return, drive to Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park-Rushaga sector in Kisoro which is about a 2 hours from Volcanoes National Park through the Cyanika Border.

Accommodation: Mutanda Lake Resort
Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Day 4: Gorilla tracking and night in Kisoro

Early morning wakeup call and breakfast, then transfer to the park offices for your briefing.

Tracking mountain gorillas through the dense African forests is a magical wildlife experience. Only eight guests are allowed to track a gorilla family each day, and to minimize possible transmission of human diseases and stress on these apes, visitors are asked to maintain a distance of 10m from the gorillas. Typically, tracking can take from 3 to 8 hours and requires some agility and fitness; however, all fitness levels can be accommodated and no one should feel deterred from missing this once in a lifetime experience. Return to the lodge and refresh and then head to Kisoro for a night and prepare for next morning’s golden monkey tracking and Batwa trail walk.

Accommodation: Ikoro Hotel
Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Day 5: Golden Monkey tracking and Batwa trail

In the shadows of the one Gorilla Group at Mgahinga Gorilla National Park, thrives a species of the blue monkey; the golden monkeys which are endangered and only between 2000-4000 of the them are left and only found in the Virungas. In the morning we shall walk into the forests that cover the Mgahinga mountains for a search of these primates. After we visit the Batwa Community and walk with them in the trail through the forest to the Ngarama Cave. The trail is an insight into the culture of the Batwa and way of life.
