DAY 3 | GORILLA TREKKING | MEAL PLAN: HB
It’s time to trek the gorillas. Set off to the departure point for a full briefing and to meet your gorilla trek guide and armed guards. At this point, you will be divided into small groups of 8 and start the trek.
The hiking is through a thick and lush rainforest and the services of a porter do come in handy during the trek. With your guide using a machete to clear a path and assist you up and down steep terrain, spending an hour with the gorillas in their natural habitat is an amazing and unforgettable experience.
The day ends with dinner and overnight at lodge
DAY 4 | DEPARTURE | MEAL PLAN: BB
We will drive back to Entebbe on this day. Depending on your scheduled flight, there are options of taking part in either a community visit or Golden Monkey hike in the Mgahinga Forest before we head back. The hike can take up to 5 hours and it may seem anticlimactic after a gorilla trek but these little creatures are well worth a visit.
The options to have an activity may be possible only if you are flying out through Kigali International Airport.
