After completing our park formalities, we embark in life for once in a lifetime experience for mountain gorilla tracking. Once you spot them, you are allowed to spend an hour watching your closest long lost cousins. This perhaps one of the most breath taking wildlife experience on earth, you get so close to these awesome giant primates. You stare at each others blankly not knowing who to break the long silence first.Tracking the gorillas through the light mountain forest on the slopes of the Virunga is a magical experience! These massive giants are extremely rare with less than 700 living today. You will get within meters of the family, and be privileged to spend an hour amongst them. The tracking maybe fairly strenuous rare, up to six hours or longer at a relatively high altitude .For your enjoyment, we encourage your to make sure that you are perfectly fit and healthy. (we’ve had people as old as 70yrs old do gorilla tracking so this should be not be a problem .All you need to ask your driver guide is to request a shorter group for you if you cannot trek far). Its important to bring good hiking boots ,long trousers, gloves for protecting against stinging nettles ,some snack and sweets( for you not the gorillas) as well as sufficient water as the rain forest gets hot and humid during the day. You will spend one hour with the gorillas, but it’s an hour you will never forget. Return to Musanze/Ruhengeri to freshen up and have lunch then depart for a 2 hour’s drive back t Kigali.
