Trekking normally takes several hours as most of the time is spent searching for these gorillas because they keep moving from one place to another in search of food, but meanwhile, you will be looking at other animals like elephants, small antelopes and many more.

A visit to the Batwa community is yet another interesting experience you should not miss while in Uganda. The Batwa were the first people to live in a park with the endangered mountain gorillas before it became a conservation area and are one of the shortest people in the whole world. While in their community you will be able to look at how they used to do their things like lighting fire, their dances and many more. Trek back to the lodge.
