Where To Trek Mountain Gorilla trekking in Uganda?
Bwindi Impenetrable Forest was gazetted in 1942 and upgraded to a national park in 1992 and recognized as World Heritage Site in 1994. In the local language Rukiga, Bwindi means impenetrable. This park was opened to tourists to trek mountain gorillas in 1993. My company where I was working was the first to take 1st tourists to trek mountain gorillas. Thus after a good experience in handling many tourists, I formed my company Travel Hemispheres in 2004 and have been conducting Uganda safaris, and gorilla trekking safaris to Bwindi. Our Uganda safaris are rich and offer a lot to the tourists who go with us.
What is Mountain Gorilla Trekking Expedition Experience
Just for fun, I remember in our course of arranging gorilla trekking expeditions then, some tourists would ask us if they can carry torches in their packaging to help them again in daylight to enter into Bwindi’s impenetrable forest and then their torches would help them to provide the flash lighting in order to recognized and see properly mountain gorillas in their habitat. However, we allayed their fears that being impenetrable meant that there was thick undergrowth that makes it impenetrable and did not need light but some tools like pangas, and slashers to create a way so that you can easily reach where gorillas are foraging on that particular day and spend an hour to have nice views while taking snaps video taking photo shooting. So Bwindi Forest by Nature has got many canopies that will not allow sunlight easily penetrate to reach the ground where mountain gorillas could be.
Mountain Gorilla trekking started at Buhoma side the northern part of the park accessed from Rukungiri and Queen Elizabeth national park via Ishasha sector, with one mountain gorilla family of Mubare then habituated to be tracked by tourists. Gorilla trekking is carried inside the Bwindi forest. After a briefing by park officials at park offices then you are assigned rangers with experience who will lead you to where mountain gorillas will be at that time of encounter. Will walk down hills , will climb up hills will trek valleys and small gorges until you meet face by face mountain gorillas and by all this is called gorilla trekking experience. More mountain gorilla families were habituated and habituated .
What is Gorilla Habituation Experience of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest
Our gorilla habituation safari experience will include gorilla trekking and gorilla habituation permit experience that cost $1500 . Gorilla trekking permit cost is $700. Gorilla Habituation is having and taking part in the habituation of gorillas activities that start at around 6.00am for the whole day. While gorilla trekking will follow already habituated gorilla families until you reach where the slept last night and follow them until you encounter them for viewing. Gorilla habituation is the training of wild gorillas to get used to human beings so that when humans come to trek them they do not become violent and attack people. This exercise take very long time in years to make sure that wild gorilla family/group is habituated. For a person doing habituation safari experience will have chance to learn more about these ape giants lifestyle and way of living in their natural habitat.
