This day calls for a very early rise. You have to make it to the ORTPN offices by 7:30 to catch up with the morning briefing. It is from this meeting where you will be assigned into groups of eight randomly and given all the necessary advice to guide you through a swift mountain gorilla trekking adventure.
After this meeting, you will then spark off your trek under the accompaniment of an armed ranger for protection. Some of the park guides will move ahead so as to locate the gorillas in time and guide your group towards the right direction. The trek isn’t so hard compared to the one in Uganda BUT equally calls for a good physical state.
When you meet the gorillas, you have an hour around them and after you shall return to the park headquarters for your respective gorilla tracking certificates before transferring to Kigali to catch up with your flight back home.
