Day 2: Gorilla Tracking

Encountering the mountain gorillas in the wild is a truly humbling and emotional experience, one that you are sure to remember for the rest of your life.

Early breakfast before proceeding to the park head quarters where visitors assemble at 07.00 for a briefing on how to “behave “while in the company of a gorilla group. You will meet your guide here and proceed to the starting point of the trek to our allocated group of gorillas. The length of the trek varies depending on where the gorillas are as well as what the weather conditions are.

It is important to bring good hiking boots, long trousers for protection against stinging nettles, some snacks & sweets as well as sufficient amount of water as the rain forest gets hot and humid during the day. Once the group of gorillas have been spotted and approached thanks to the trackers, at a distance of 5 meters maximum, so as not to disturb them, you spend one hour with the gorillas which is a truly amazing experience " before trekking back to the base and return to your lodge.

Easygoing and peaceful, gorillas seem totally indifferent to your presence and continue their lives, playing, rolling, delousing, sleeping ... and feeding in their plant world. Sometimes they come very close to you, until they touch you ... It's a unique, fascinating moment

Then back to the foot of the volcano to return to Kigali.
