Wake up for cheerful cup of coffee in preparations for the most interesting activity in the world.

There are more than five family groups of the gorillas to track in Bwindi and we may see;

womMubare the oldest family group with now 5 members, Ruheneza the only silverback as the head, Habinyanja group with 15 gorillas and 2 silverbacks which keep fighting for leadership of the group, Rushegura group with 9 gorillas and 1 silverback, the head, Nkuringo group with 19 members and 2 silverbacks who also fight for leading the family, Bitukura gorilla family is also part of the park with 12 members of the family containing 2 silverbacks, Nshongi gorilla family is another group in the park that may be seen during our tracking, it has 36 members with 5 silverbacks.

The tracking activity may take us between 2 to 8 hours the fact being that the activity of tracking the gentle giants is so un predictable making it so hard to be sure of the time you are to hike, sit patiently in the rainforest and enjoy viewing the different gorillas as they crack and play with each other through the high canopy of the forest as the colorful birds call to each other near by. Walk through the impenetrable forest in search of other groups that u might have not seen and other primates, thus a steady pair of walking shoes is needed as well as a reasonable degree of fitness.
