3 Day Bwindi Gorilla Habituation Safari

3 Day Bwindi Gorilla Habituation Safari

Gorilla habituation safari is a new activity in Bwindi impenetrable national park where clients can actively participate in habituating wild gorillas together with tourists; this will require the clients to participate for 4 hours with the team of habituators from Uganda wildlife Authority.

Participants will spend four hours, they start counting from the time you find the gorilla nests on words until you find the actual gorillas; the experience is phenomenal when you find the gorillas immediately after the nests as this will give you enough time to study the gorilla behaviour and interact with the habituators however this is a very physical activity so those participating must ensure they are physical strong.
