highlight of the trip- Gorilla trekking, which may last the entire day. We trek through the
rainforest and bamboo covered slopes, accompanied by a guide and trackers, in search of a

glimpse of the magnificent silverback, any discomforts will be quickly forgotten. When sighted,
visitors will be guided to within 6 meters from the gorillas, sit around them for a whole hour
while gazing into their big round eyes.
Gorilla trekking is unpredictable. It’s difficult to foresee how many hours you will hike. The gorilla
excursion can take from 2 up to 8 hours. Expect to walk along distance in steep and
Muddy conditions, sometimes with rain overhead, before you encounter any gorillas. A good
physical condition is recommended. For conservation purposes, time spent with the gorillas is
limited to one hour. A ranger will brief you on how to behave with the gorillas.
