Day 2: Gorilla habituation experience in Rushaga sector of Bwindi impenetrable national park Uganda

  • Uganda gorilla habituation in Bwindi impenetrable national park: on day 2 of 3 days safari, you need to wake and have a very heavy breakfast, pack enough snacks, drinking water and wear the most suitable attire then be driven to the assembly for a briefing. After briefing you will set off alongside other habituators, researchers and the armed rangers to start the adventurous activity of searching the gorilla family that is still under habituation. Gorilla habitation in Bwindi takes about 1-8 hours or even a full day depending on how far gorillas have moved since gorilla habituation deals with the gorillas that have not been used to human so expect them to shy away from your presence as they go by doing their daily activities and roaming in the forest in search of food. Once the gorillas finally settle, you will spend 4 hours with them as you learn all their manners and behaviors, taking photographs and many more. After spending 4 hours with gorillas in their natural habitats, you will return to the lodge for a relaxed evening, dinner and overnight rest.
  • Note: the entire gorilla habituation process takes 2-3 years for a gorilla family to completely get used to human presence but while on a safari to habituate gorillas in Uganda, only 4 hours are allowed with gorillas.
