Day 2: Gorilla Tracking
Today you will start early! From the lodge, you drive to the park headquarters for briefing From here your driver/guide will take you as close as possible to the starting point of your gorilla tracking, you will track one of the habituated Gorilla groups who can tolerate the presence of humans for a brief period every day, tracking gorillas may take between 2 hrs -8 hrs!
Your track will be an exciting journey along forested slopes, entwined vines, bushes and bamboo before you eventually reach the gorillas’ current location. Your guide will point out signs of previous gorilla activity, including dung, nests and chewed bamboo shoots. Once the gorillas have been located, you will be allowed a maximum of one hour with them. Coming face-to-face with a mountain gorilla is a humbling and emotional experience. This is a fantastic and privileged opportunity to get up close and personal with Rwanda’s own ‘Gorillas in the Mist’.
