- Observación de aves
Gorilla tracking is the main activity at Bwindi. The gorillas we track belong to one of the ‘habituated’ family groups in northern Bwindi. Experienced guides accompany the tracking, many of who have been involved in the habituation process themselves.
Gorilla tracking is a year-round activity. Tracking commences at 08.30 am. There is a daily maximum of eight visitors to each gorilla group. The terrain is difficult, with steep slopes covered in dense vegetation and the altitude means participants need to be physically fit to enjoy the track. Once the gorillas are located, the group is allowed a maximum of one hour with them.
Take a guided walk through the forest and you may see some of the 350 species of birds, 11 kinds of primates, forest duiker antelopes, rare forest elephant, giant forest hog, or over 200 species of butterflies that live here.
Walk through the area meeting tea pickers, see how beer is made from bananas, visit the local clinic and even a traditional medicine man. End your visit with a performance by the Batwa pygmy community.
