Day seven

This day will begin by assembling at the briefing point for guidelines about this amazing activity. After briefing by the specialized site ranger, you head to the forest. The trekking duration is determined by the position where the gorillas spent the night and their feeding range. Once the gorillas are found, you’re allowed to spend an hour with them. You will enjoy this memorable experience as you stand just a few meters from the gorillas, watching them feed, play, and even bond with their young ones. You will be amazed at how these creatures have so much resemblance with human beings.

When you reach Mbarara town, you will have lunch at Igongo cultural center. While you're here, you will learn about the Banyankole tribe of western Uganda. This will certainly enrich you with an insight of the traditional and current cultural set up of the people of Ankole. Also, stop and visit the equator that runs through Uganda. It’s marvellous to have pictures taken underneath the equator sign. Generally, people tend to carry out non-scientific experiments, most of them are manipulated illusions and not authentic but fun to watch.
There are also curio and souvenir shops that you can visit. A couple of them have their wares nicely displayed and make it easier to shop for crafts including of course the equator t-shirt that is an optional buy for many visitors.
