In the Afternoon visit Bigodi wetland which is managed by the local community. This project was started by an American Peace Corps Volunteer trying to develop ways for the local people to derive income by protecting their forest for ecotourism. It has survived as a success model which funds a school and employs local people as hosts, guards and guides. Here, we expect to spot the elusive Sitatunga antelope in the Papyrus and several other interesting species of birds like the White-winged warbler, Papyrus Gonolek, and Carruthre’s Cisticola. Today we enjoy a traditionally prepared meal from the local group that manages this wetland.

Set off early, with packed lunch, to the park headquarters for a briefing prior to Gorilla tracking. The gorillas are gentle animals and it is an unforgettable experience to observe and photograph them in their natural habitat. Reaching the family to which you were assigned to may require walking of 20 minutes to three hours or more. Trackers are likely to have pre-located them and radioed back their location to your guide, but the animals are wide-ranging and they don’t stick to the trails. Each encounter is different and has its own rewards. You are likely to enjoy the close view of adults feeding, grooming and resting as the youngsters frolic and swing from vines in a delightfully playful display. Gorilla tracking involves part or all of one day in the Impenetrable Forest. In rare instances finding, reaching, observing and returning from a group takes an entire day of quite hard trekking. You need to be physically fit if you wish to maximize your chances. Very rarely are gorillas elusive,so chances of seeing them are high but no guarantees with nature. Overnight Engagi lodge, Gorilla Haven lodge, Bakiga Lodge for dinner and overnight stay.
