Retreat from the activity and continue to Fort Portal town for lunch after which embark on a heritage tour to Amabere cave which is named after the live stalactite formation, Amabeere ga Nyinamwiru (literally, Breast of Nyinamwiru).

The cave’s breast-like features are believed to have belonged to Nyinamwiru, King Bukuku’s daughter who is said to have been so beautiful that no man could leave her alone. When King became weary of receiving marital requests from unsuitable suitors, he took the extreme measure of cutting off his daughter’s breasts to make her less attractive. But even this proved to be insufficient to deter Nyinamwiru’s many admirers, so the king hid her away in the cave now known as Amabere. Here, she was discovered by the Batembuzi King Isaza, who impregnated her with a son.

Because Nyinamwiru lacked breasts, she stayed on in the cave with her baby, feeding him on the cloudy limestone ‘milk’ that drips from its stalactites. The child nurtured by the stalactite formation grew up and became king Ndahura, founder of the Bachwezi dynasty that ruled over the Bunyoro Kitara Empire centuries ago.

The encounter tends to take 2 – 8 hours depending on the Gorilla movements and one hour is availed to you to have a face-to-face encounter with the gorillas. Upon approaching gorillas, their reaction is not predictable as it can include them giving you a courteous welcome, minding less about you, and charging against you. However, as a result of habituation, Mountain gorillas are always welcoming with the Silverback beating a little of his chest to demonstrate his might and also welcoming you to the group. You are not limited in any way to ask as many questions about gorillas and their habitats along with taking pictures, but keep the flash off.

After your one hour with the gorillas, return to the starting point and embark on the transfer to Lake Bunyonyi driving through the dramatic Kigezi Highlands which locals apply the terracing method to cultivate their slopes deriving impressive scenic landscape.

14 Days Uganda Safari − GORILLA TREKKING TIPS

  • Carry plenty of water and some quick calories. The trek is relatively tiresome.
  • Put on strong hiking shoes/boots
  • Wear long sleeved shirt/t-shirt, thick trouser.
  • Strong gardening gloves for protection against stinging plants are also recommended
  • Bring a warm sweater/fleece as it is often cold at the outset
  • Carry a rain jacket or poncho since it can rain at any time in the tropical rainforest of Bwindi
  • It is also a good idea to have sunscreen and sunglasses
