Day Two: Mountain Gorilla Trekking

Wake up early in the morning and head to the park offices by 7:30am for a short briefing meeting. It is from this same meeting that you will be split into groups and assigned random gorilla groups to track. After this meeting, you will then head into the forests to search for mountain gorillas. This experience lasts from two to eight hours maximum depending on how long you take to locate the gorillas. This includes a full hour encounter you will spend around these gentle primates. Usually guides split into potions and move ahead of you to locate the gorillas first and then communicate to their fellow guides so as to guide them on the right direction. This way, you will locate gorillas easily and your hike becomes way shorter. After meeting gorillas, you will return to your safari lodge for late lunch.
