ACTIVITIES

Gorilla Bluff Lodge is the perfect place to sleep and the perfect base for a variety of activities which include the following:

GORILLA TRACKING

Gorilla tracking is the most tourist activity done in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. The mountain gorillas are wild animals but have been habituated to get used to seeing and interacting with a few humans daily. Wild gorillas are trained and taught by a team of experts for a period of 3 years, a process known as Gorilla Habituation, also part of the activities offered by the Uganda Wildlife Authority with only 4 permits available daily at a cost of $1,500 per permit.

COMMUNITY WALKS

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is surrounded by several communities of different tribes. Buhoma Sector, in particular is surrounded by the Bakiga and the Batwa (Pygmies) communities of people. These communities have different living standards and modes of life. Do a community walk and visit both communities and learn more about their culture and art. The walk takes you through several banana and coffee plantations as you experience how they are processed to make final products.

NATURE AND FOREST WALKS

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest does not only host mountain gorillas but also boasts over 350 bird species, which include 24 Albertine Endemics, forest elephants, giant forest hogs, forest duiker, bush bucks, over 200 butterfly species, 11 species of primates including chimpanzees and blue monkeys. A guided nature walk is one of the best ways to explore the magnificent forest of Bwindi before or after tracking the mountain gorillas.

GAME VIEWING SAFARIS AND ADVENTURES

While you may want to visit other national parks of Uganda before or after Gorilla Tracking, see lions, elephants, giraffes, buffaloes, rhinos, the chimpanzees, or see the world’s most powerful waterfall, our guests are able to see all these at a relatively affordable rate. Simply let us know during the booking process or when you can talk to us when you are at the lodge.

ART & HANDCRAFT TRAINING

We are very instrumental in teaching and training interested visitors how to make handcrafts out of wood. Buhoma is known for the mountain gorillas and most of the talented youth earn a living through making art and crafts to sell to the tourists. Some of the tourists find it interesting and always want to participate in handcraft making, that’s where we come in to teach them step by step as they make beautiful souvenirs.
