Days 17 & 18 Gorilla Time!

Next morning we changed our Big Yellow Truck for a motor boat for some of our journey. We crossed the lake before meeting the truck and continue to the town of Kisoro. In the afternoon most of us went on a trip to a local Batwa Pygmy village to meet the people and learn about their culture. We were joined by new passengers and enjoyed getting to know one another over dinner and everyone was super excited about the next days gorilla trekking!

Trekking Day dawned and it was an early breakfast and off up the Virunga Mountains to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest to trek to see the endangered mountain Gorilla’s. We split into two small groups to trek through the amazing rainforest on the sides of the volcanoes. One lucky group only trekked for ½ an hour before they found what they have been looking for – an entire family of mountain gorillas. Everyone agrees seeing these animals is once in a life time and unforgettable experience. We celebrated the trekking success with drumming and dancing around the campfire! Another great end to yet another memorable day.
