After the briefing, you will be split up into groups of eight, with each group being assigned a habituated gorilla family to trek with and a park guide who is knowledgeable about the routes used for gorilla trekking. Because mountain gorillas tend to roam around in search of food, a typical gorilla trekking experience lasts between thirty minutes and six hours, depending on the gorilla’s location. Trekking offers a variety of wildlife viewing opportunities, including birds, other primates, and various tree species. If the mountain gorillas are located, you will have an hour to spend with them, during which you can learn more about their daily routine, watch them play, feed, and nurse their young, take pictures, and record amazing videos which offers you unforgettable safari  memories.
