The gorillas you will track belong to one of nine habituated family groups who can tolerate the presence of humans for a brief period every day.

Your gorilla trekking will be an exciting journey along forested slopes, entwined vines, bushes, and bamboo before you eventually reach the gorillas’ habitat. En route, your guide will point out signs of previous gorilla activity, including dung, nests, and chewed bamboo shoots.

Once the gorillas have been located, you will be allowed a maximum of one hour with them. Thereafter you will come back to your lodge for relaxation, dinner, and an overnight stay.
