This was one of the most amazing things I've ever done. I got to see the ways of life of Batwa people in the forest. The hike itself was easy.

This was a highlight of our trip. It is on the grounds of the Mt. Gahinga Lodge, which is a great place to have a meal, if you are not staying there. Do not miss it!
