DAY 3
BWINDI IMPENETRABLE FOREST |
GORILLA ENCOUNTER
Gorilla Trek
Spend today tracking endangered mountain gorillas, spending up to an hour amongst them with local UWA guides. See mothers keeping infants close as they knucklewalk on three limbs. Watch scampering toddlers reined in by an attentive father, whose job is to protect his family. When you encounter a mountain gorilla in the wild, there is no mistaking the bond that exists between primate and man — and no escaping the poignant fact these creatures lie on the brink of extinction. Should time allow after your return from the forest and lunch, you will be taken to the Batwa community who is commonly known as pygmies, they are an endangered group of people living around the Bwindi Forest Reserves of South-Western Uganda. The Batwa are believed to have migrated from the Ituri Forest of the Democratic Republic of Congo in search of richer game-filled areas. In past times the Batwa live in small huts mainly made from sticks and grass and survived on the produce of the forest.
