3 days Gorilla tracking Buhoma ( Gorilla trekking Bwindi )

3 days Gorilla tracking Buhoma, Probably one of the best sections for tracking / trekking Gorillas as it has a variety of accommodation options and it is the first and oldest Gorilla tracking sections that first hosted tourists for the activity of Gorilla tracking. Buhoma has about 3 habituated Gorilla families and among these, the Mubare family which is the oldest habituated Gorilla family that hosted the very first Gorilla trackers.

Buhoma has an added advantage of connecting to other sectors like Nkuringo and Ruhija. Being the first Gorilla tracking section, it has quite a number of Gorilla conservation projects that one can get involved in. Definitely an ideal place for the 3 days Gorilla tracking experience.
