3 DAY MOUNTAIN GORILLA HABITUATION IN BWINDI

Overview:

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park; is one of Uganda’s UNESCO world heritage sites at an area of about 321Square Kilometers. The park is a world class tourist destination located in Southwestern Uganda sheltering almost half of the world’s remaining Mountain Gorillas. These primates are an endangered species and members of the world’s Great Apes, with a population estimate of over 1000 individuals remaining in the wilds.

On this experiential safari, you follow habituators and researchers on a full day activity as they monitor the Gorillas through their daily activity and habituating them to get used to human presence. This activity gives you ample time to watch them (over 4 hours in their presence) not common to a visitor on a normal Gorilla tracking safari who is allowed only 1 hour with these primates.
