DAY 2 – Gorilla Trekking


With your packed lunch, proceed to the ranger station for briefing about gorilla trekking. Together with other gorilla trackers you will be divided into groups of 8 people and escorted into the forest to find the mountain gorillas. The ranger guide will follow the trail where the mountain gorillas were last seen the previous day.  Some patience is required since the gorillas are highly mobile and the ranger guide follows the pass of the slowest trekker so that everyone is well catered for. When you finally get to meet the gorillas, wait for your guide’s signal before taking photographs because he has to observe the behavior of the mountain gorillas.  Standing at about 7 meters, enjoy the gorillas and later return to the lodge to rest.
