After breakfast, we'll proceed to the park's station for the morning briefing before beginning our trek.
We'll track the gorillas through the rainforest and bamboo covered slopes, accompanied by a guide and trackers, in search of a mountain gorilla family, the walking can sometimes be tough and long, but when you catch a glimpse of the magnificent silverback, any discomforts will be quickly forgotten. When the gorillas are sighted, visitors will be guided to within 6 meters from the gorillas, sit around them for a whole hour while gazing into their big round eyes. Gorilla trekking is unpredictable.
Gorilla trekking, which may last the entire day, but it’s difficult to foresee how many hours you will hike. The gorilla excursion can take from 2 up 8 hours. Expect to walk along distance in steep and muddy conditions, sometimes with rain overhead, before you encounter any gorillas. A good physical condition is recommended. For conservation purposes, time spent with gorillas is limited to one hour. A ranger will brief you on how to behave with the gorillas. Overnight at your lodge of booking.
Summary of The Day: After breakfast, we check out and drive to Kibale National Park, as you enjoy nice scenery, and good views of the shadows of the mountains of the moon - the Ruwenzori. Kibale national park, averages about 3300 feet in elevation, is an exertion of the great rainforests of central Africa.
It is inhabited by three large communities of chimps, each numbering more than 100 individuals. Each community terraces a complicated social structure. The big adult males dominate the group and defend the community territory against incursions by male outsiders; the females usually wander in small family grouped. Chimps tend to forage in small parties or even as individuals. They usually travel on the ground but being primarily fruit eaters, they mostly feed in trees. They coalesce into large groups when they find an abundant source of food, such as fruiting fig tree.
Summary of The Day: We'll gather at the Kanyankye River Camp at 8:00am to go for the most popular activity in this park: chimpanzee tracking.
Chimpanzee are mans closet cousins though they are one of the most threatened primates species. More primates like black and white Columbus monkeys, L’hoest monkeys, Grey checked mangabey, red tailed monkey, bush babies, pottosand many birds species like the yellow spotted nicator, rumped tinker bird, little greenbelt green breasted pitta the crowned eagle, black bee eater and mammals like elephants can be seen in this walk.
Typically, we locate the chimps by listening for their pant hooting calls, then hustle to the area from which they are calling, We get to observe them as they feed in fruiting trees, lounge, and socializing with each other or even, occasionally, hunt.
In the afternoon we'll visit a nearby forest swamp that is excellent for viewing primates and other forest animals. At the eastern edge of Kibale Forest is the Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary which is maintained by the local community. You can expect to see birds like the great blue turaco, blue monkeys baboons otters mongoose, bushbucks, bush pigs and among others.
