Having encountered these apes, you will spend an hour with them and then move back to your lodge. In the evening, we have a game drive through the Kasenyi sector. This is a mating ground for antelopes and therefore a good place to spot predators (lions, leopards, hyenas). We continue up to Lake George to visit a fishing village before moving to our lodge for overnight Pumba Safari Cottages

Be ready to walk for 45 minutes to 6 hours depending on where you will find the gorillas that day. Having encountered them, you will be given a full hour to interact with them. That look into the eyes of the gentle mountain gorilla is likely not to be forgotten and therefore a highlight of your 10 days Uganda safari. These are strongest and most mascular primates on earth. You then return to your lodge to retreat from day activities.
