Bwindi Impenetrable Forest NP – Mountain Gorilla trek 1
Finally, the day has arrived for our long awaited first Mountain Gorilla trek. Following an early morning breakfast, we will depart our lodge on a short drive to the National Park offices where we will receive our briefing. Hereafter, we will put sole to soil as we follow the lead of our park guides.
We will enjoy plenty of opportunities on route to take photographs and share in the local knowledge of the park rangers. The length of the trek is for the most part unpredictable, so we make use of porters to assist us with carrying gear as well as lend assistance on the trails for those who need this.
When we reach our allocated gorilla family, we will leave behind our backpacks, walking sticks and porters. We will spend one hour in the presence of these magnificent animals so I urge you to make the most of this experience. I will assist with photographic tutoring on site as well as get you in the best possible position from where to photograph.
Afternoon post processing workshop.
