A Brief Enjoyable Gorilla Trekking Safari
It is an exciting experience to spend a day in the jungle trekking the only remaining mountain gorillas in the world. This activity is quite strenuous but greatly rewarding when you finally have an encounter with one of the families of these giant primates in Volcanoes National Park.
Day 1: Transfer to volcanoes National park for Gorilla Trekking:
Our experienced guide and driver will meet you very early in the morning and start a 2 hour drive to the volcanoes National Park Headquarters in Ruhengeri. It is advisable that you reach at the Headquarters for briefing before 7:00 am. You will need to carry packed breakfast and lunch as you will spend most of your time in the jungle.
The time you will spend tracking the gorillas is unpredictable and it may take as few as only 2 hours on a good day yet it may even take you 8 hours before you meet these great apes. This period taken depends on their movement on the previous day. When you finally find the gorillas, you will have to spend an hour watching them play and eat foliage as you take photographs. It is truly a thrilling experience of a lifetime.
In case you finish the gorilla tracking early you can choose to relax and have a drink at one of the executive hotels near the park or you can take a cultural tour so as to have an opportunity to interact with the friendly local people.
