Day 4: Gorilla tracking and transfer to Queen Elizabeth NP

Have an early breakfast at 6.00am and transfer to the briefing point. With packed lunch in your carry-on, listen to the briefing from the rangers on what to expect before commencing your trek. The guides will then take you through the bush, pushing your way through the undergrowth, looking for where the family of gorillas you are tracking spent the night. When you finally locate the family that you are tracking, sit in the forest among the gorillas, listening to them grumble to each other, and marvel at the sheer size of the dominant male - the silverback. It is an extraordinary feeling sitting in the dense rainforest in the knowledge that you are in the presence of the few remaining Mountain Gorillas in the wild. After the mandatory 1 hour is up, the rangers and guides will lead you back to the starting point. You will commence your transfer to Queen Elizabeth National Park. Arriving in the evening, you will check into Bush Lodge for dinner and overnight stay.
