The Posho gorilla family is still under the habituation process in the Nkuringo Sector of Bwindi. The dominant Silverback Magara leads the group that consists of 14 members.
According to internal sources in UWA, the Posho group will soon be available for the Habituation Experience in Nkuringo Sector. This is a very much anticipated move because the experience only occurs in the Rushaga sector.
Gorilla trekking in Nkuringo sector of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
Three trekking groups each consisting of eight tourists leave the UWA trailhead at the Nkuringo sector and head to the south of the Bwindi jungle to find and spend an hour with the mountain gorillas. These daily gorilla trekking excursions are the main attraction to the Nkuringo area.
Despite the fact that the movements of the mountain gorillas are unpredictable, it could take approximately 30 minutes to one hour to find them. Treks in Nkuringo begin at 08:00 every day after a short briefing for rules and regulations.
Two armed rangers for security and an expert tracker are assigned to each trekking group to take them through the thick, pristine jungle. Additionally, they help them to spend a peaceful hour at a safe distance of 10 meters from the mountain gorilla families.
All trekkers should carry two masks, one fresh one to wear when you meet the gorillas and the other at the briefing. They should also wear a long-sleeved shirt, trousers, and waterproof hiking boots to navigate the uneven terrain that leads to the gorillas.
A gorilla trekking permit for the Nkuringo sector costs $700 for all non-resident foreign guests. However, it is Ugx 750,000 for East African citizens.
