The Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is where you have the best chance of spotting a mountain gorilla family.

Aside from the amazing gorilla interactions, there are numerous forest walks and 346 species of birds to track down, many of which are amazingly colourful. Dinner at the lodge with overnight stay.

Waterproof ankle shoes or good athletic shoes are recommended for this day. Wear thick long pants (not light weight khakis) to protect your legs from the underbrush. Bring heavy, long socks that can be pulled up over the pants to prevent any problems with stinging nettles and ants. Bring a pair of sturdy gardening gloves and protect your camera with a rain cover (a plastic bag or shower cap can work!).
