Day 9

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest national park – Mountain gorilla trekking – Drive to Mgahinga gorilla national park

Day 9 of a 14-day wildlife and primate safari in Uganda. Wake up early in the morning (0600am) to organize yourself, gather the necessary mountain gorilla trekking equipment such as cameras, binoculars, insect repellants, and dress appropriately for mountain gorilla trekking such as long khaki or jean trousers, a long-sleeved shirt, waterproof hiking boots, a rain jacket, heavy-duty gloves, and round hats. Have a hearty breakfast, pack your lunch boxes, bring plenty of drinking water, and meet your safari guide to be transferred to the park information offices to be briefed about mountain gorilla trekking dos and don'ts, how to behave in the presence of mountain gorillas, and be assigned a mountain gorilla family to track with the assistance of a UWA ranger and the park ranger.

We recommend hiring a porter to assist you in carrying your packed bag and any other items you may require while mountain gorilla trekking. Begin your forest walk in search of the endangered mountain gorillas in their natural habitats after a pre-mountain gorilla trekking session.

It is unknown how long it will take you to meet your assigned mountain gorilla family. However, depending on the movements and location of the gorilla family you are assigned, it could take anywhere from 45 minutes to 4 hours. As a result, you should be physically and mentally prepared to walk a long distance through a hilly forest with no clear walking trails that are only made at that specific time of tracking by your guide, depending on the direction that can easily lead you to the location of the gorilla family. That is why it is recommended that you bring enough water to stay hydrated and snacks to keep you energized while walking through the forest in search of mountain gorillas.

When you find the mountain gorilla family, the thrill of seeing them in their natural habitat will outweigh the difficulties you faced while looking for them. A mountain gorilla family can consist of several members, including the giant silverback, who is always the family's leader and protector, mothers, infants, and juveniles. The time you spend with the mountain gorillas allows you to learn about their behaviors, how they socialize, and be excited by their actions, such as the playful babies, mothers grooming their babies, and Mr. Silverback, who silently watches the situation as he prepares to defend the family from any kind of attack.

You will have a maximum of one hour with the mountain gorillas and will be free to take as many photos and record videos as you want to preserve your wonderful memories with the mountain gorilla family in the jungle.

The Batwa people used to live in the forests of Bwindi and Mgahinga before Uganda Wildlife Authority designated both as national parks to protect mountain gorillas, golden monkeys, and other wildlife species. As a result, the Batwa people were left homeless and unhappy because they were not used to living without forests where they could hunt small animals for meat and gather fruits.

As a result, the Batwa trail was established to demonstrate the Batwa way of life to the rest of the world and to preserve it for future Batwa generations to learn about their ancestors. The Batwa trail will take you back into the indigenous lifestyle of the Batwa people by demonstrating to you their hunting skills, how they used to build their houses using local materials, visiting the local doctor and collecting local herbs, visiting caves in the forest that used to be their hiding places during tribal wars, how to make fire from wood, and later being entertained by the woman.

As a result, poor men who couldn't afford the bride price would come to this island to find free wives among those who could have been exiled to this island. In an African society, it is a disgrace for a girl to become pregnant before her official marriage, which would cause the family to lose community respect, so parents were strict with their girl children to protect them.
