Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

28 Oct

Getting to Buhoma where I was to stay for my gorilla trekking was interesting to say the least. It involved many “shortcuts” of muddy terrain going up and over hills while dealing with heavy rain fall. I eventually got to my destination 11 hours after leaving Kampala early in the morning.

The next day my group set out to find the Mubare family of mountain gorillas in the National Park. I was an easy target for the rangers as I was the only person hiking in shorts (there was no way I was doing that in jeans). Once we set off you found out why they called it the impenetrable forest as it was extremely thick bush. Two hours and a few bug bites later we reached the trackers who had gone out ahead of us. The next hour we spent hanging out with these huge animals watching them lie about and snack on the vegetation. Here is some video of the massive animals deep in the jungle.
