Day 3Gorilla Tracking and Batwa Experience

Today is the big day prepares yourself for an encounter with one of Bwindi’s gentle giants: the rare mountain gorilla. For most people this is the absolute highlight of their tour in Uganda. Bwindi Impenetrable Forest boasts both mountain gorillas and chimpanzees – the only forest in Africa which can make this claim, in fact. It also hosts five other species of primate, species of mammal, over butterflies and birds. En route to the gorillas, your guide will point out signs of previous gorilla activity, including dung, nests and chewed bamboo shoots. The gorillas you track belong to one of nine habituated family groups who can tolerate the presence of humans for a brief period every day. The time taken to track the gorillas can be as few as 2 hours to as many as 7 hours. Your track will be an exciting journey along forested slopes, intertwined vines, bushes and bamboo before you eventually reach the gorilla family. Once the gorillas have been located, your group will be allowed a maximum of one hour with them. Coming face-to-face with a mountain gorilla is a truly humbling and emotional experience. This is a fantastic and privileged opportunity to get up close and personal with Uganda’s very own ‘ Gorillas in the Mist ‘. In the evening you might opt for the cultural encounter, for generations, Mgahinga dense forests were homes to the indigenous Batwa-hunters-gatherers and fierce warriors who depended on the forest for shelter, food and medicine. Now lead visitors through the forests and introduce them to their old homes and the techniques they used to survive on while in the forest. You later check in the lodge for dinner and spend.

This took place between two ethnic groups populating Rwanda: The Hutus and the Tutsis and this was between April and June 1994 (~100 days), an estimated 800,000 Rwandans were killed. Soldiers and police officers encouraged ordinary citizens to take part in the killings. Hutu civilians, forced by military personnel, were to murder their neighbors, friends, and even relatives. Participants were given incentives, in the form of money, food, or land, to kill Tutsis; they could appropriate the land of the Tutsis they killed. But this now left history behind and the Genocide is now a tourist attraction.
