Gorilla tracking registration and briefing take place at the Uganda Wildlife Authority park offices from 7.45 am, briefing starts at exactly 8:00am and tracking usually starts at 8.30 am. It is here that you will be given the name of the specific gorilla family you are tracking. And While briefing is going on your guide will register and choose a gorilla group for you. Yes some gorilla families are easier to track than others; it all depends at what altitude they range, or what distance they cover during the day. It normally takes 1 to 3 hours tracking time (each way) to find your gorilla family. If you’re fit, pushing through the dense jungle of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, with a ranger hacking through the occasional branch with his machete in front of you, can be quite an adventure! Fantastic!
