Tour Code: On this tour we will be looking for a variety of bird species that include many Albertine Rift Endemics as well as some very sought-after mammals such as Mountain Gorilla and Chimpanzees. The days can be long as it is important to be out at dawn and again out until dusk, as this is when most species are at their most active. but we shall endeavor to rest in the middle of the day or use this time to travel to our next destination. Each vehicle will hold up to 6 passengers, driver and a guide. The walking in most areas will be on well-defined mostly level tracks but at Ruhija the trek for Mountain Gorillas can take us away from forest trails and into areas that may be steep, slippery or thickly vegetated. Good walking boots and rain gear are essential in case of the off-chance of unseasonal showers.
