You will be allocated a gorilla family at random by park warden and be paired in a group of 8 people per gorilla family. Remember our tour guides have built strong relationship with the park warden, so in case if you need to trek a specific gorilla family, our tour guide will talk to the warden and you will be given the gorilla family of your chose.

The well-armed park warden will lead the group into the jungle in search of the remaining endangered mountain gorillas. The trek takes half an hour to 7 hours depending on the movement of gorillas and where they built their pervious nest. After finding the gorillas, you will be allowed only an hour with them, see how they feed, young ones jumping from branch to branch, young’s playing and breast feeding, take photos and interact with the gorillas.
