Gorilla Trekking

Gorilla Trekking

After an early morning breakfast, walk to the park headquarters for briefing and thereafter you’ll proceed to the gorilla trail. Gorilla tracking normally lasts between 2 to 8 hours or even a day to encounter the gorillas. However, you’ll be allowed to stay in the presence of these awesome apes for at least an hour. It is advisable that you carry packed lunch as one cannot determine how long
it may take to encounter the mountain gorillas. If time and energy allow you may take a community walk after the gorilla tracking or just relax at your accommodation, most likely enjoying the sounds and sights of the area. Return to your accommodation (if you took a walk in the community), enjoy your evening, dinner and overnight.
