Day 3: Mountain gorillas visit

Gorilla tracking: meet early in the morning at the National Park office for a briefing. With the help of an official guide and trackers, in groups of no more than 8 people, you set off in search of mountain gorillas. Tracking can take from 2 to 6 hours. Once the group of gorillas has been spotted and approached by the trackers, you can observe them for no more than an hour, from a distance of no more than 5 meters, so as not to disturb them. Peaceful and debonair, gorillas seem totally indifferent to your presence and go on with their lives, playing, rolling, delousing, sleeping... and feeding in their natural habitat. Occasionally, they come very close to you, even touching you... It's a unique and fascinating moment.

Afternoon: Visit the Iby'iwacu cultural village and marvel at the Rwandan folk dances. A very exciting experience of Rwandan tradition, culture and customs.
