The chimpanzees and numerous other primate species in this national park are well-known. There are more than 100 chimpanzees living in each colony, and each one has a complex social structure. Each group has an older man who is in charge of dominating the others and protecting the group from outside male intruders. The small chimpanzees always move in small groups. By locating the chimpanzees and then locating the place where they are calling from, one can locate them by hearing their pant hooting noises. You typically have an hour to spend with these primates, during which you may watch them feed, play, take care of their young, and swing from one tree to another.

The 331 sq. meter Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, which includes lowland and montane forests, first welcomed visitors in 1993. The Mubare, Habinyanja, Rusengura, and Nkuringo gorilla groups are among the four habituated gorilla groups in the park.

The 10 days Kenya and Uganda Safari will take you to one of Kenya's most well-known tourist destinations is the Maasai Mara National Reserve, which is situated in the country's southwest along the Great Rift Valley in Norok County and is bordered by Tanzania's Serengeti National Park on all sides. The Reserve has the name Mara, which refers to the area's spotted circles of trees, savanna, brush, and cloud shadows, as described by the area's original inhabitants, the Maasai. In addition to the large Nile crocodiles, predators like lions, leopards, and others, the reserve is most well-known for the yearly great migration, during which millions of wildebeest cross the Mara River under the principle of survival of the fittest. In Masai Mara, you may view all five of the big fives those are Elephants, Leopards, Lions, Buffalos and Rhinos with the highest number of black rhinos in Africa.

Gorilla Trekking

Breakfast in the morning, then head to the park headquarters for a briefing on the dos and don'ts of Bwindi gorilla trekking. When you first begin looking for the gentle giants in the rain forest, the rangers will go with you. This walk occasionally requires a lot of strength, therefore it might be difficult. Because the weather is so variable, trekkers are usually encouraged to bring their rain coats and boots. There are also some potters who, for a nominal fee, are always willing to assist visitors with lugging their bags. The rangers will instruct you on how to handle the gorillas once you see them, notably by keeping a 6 meter distance from them as you watch them play.

How long gorilla tracking will take is never easy to forecast, and it also relies on where some families are since some of them are located far from the park headquarters. The rangers will always be there to help you, but it always takes 2 to 8 hours to get in touch with them. Prior to monitoring, it is also advised that trackers maintain a healthy physical condition . After your hike, head back to the resort for lunch. You may then decide to visit the Batwa community in the late afternoon to take in some cultural performances before retiring to your lodge.
