Gorilla tracking experience begins with a hearty breakfast, with your lunch box and drinking water drive to the office /starting point for registration& briefing.  Following experienced guides, adventurers are able to visit one of man’s closest relatives, observing them in their natural habitat. At this point you will be shriving more than sweating looking for the hairy apes.   Watching these creatures feed, play, care for their young and each other is a moving and life changing experience.  The hikes are medium but at times tough & demanding due to elevation gain therefore one needs to be physically fit. The trekking duration is between 30 minutes to six hours entirely depending on where the apes may have slept the previous night and how far they may have moved that morning in search for food. . Once you find the family of gorillas, you will have one hour to view them in their natural habitat. Although still wild, the gorillas are habituated to human presence, you will have unforgettable close interaction with these magnificent animals. The trekking may be stressful and demanding but more exciting because looking into the eyes of a Gorilla is unforgettable & a life time experience. Return and drive back to your lodge
