Mountain gorilla tracking is one of the strenuous and long Uganda safari activities that lasts about 2-6 hours or more depending on where the mountain gorillas spent their previous night. Mountain Gorillas are the only great apes increasing in number and therefore attracted many tourists for gorilla safaris in Uganda especially to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.
What makes Mountain Gorilla tracking in Bwindi forest an almost day activity is the fact that these gentle giants spend each night in a different location. The silverback (lead elder male gorilla in the family) leads the family to feeding spots as well as nesting places each day. The gorillas make a nest where they spend the night and then after move in search for food in the morning.
