Gorilla Trekking in the Impenetrable Forest
The Gorilla Trekking Adventure begins, after a short drive to the park headquarters for a Gorilla trekking briefing. An advance party of guides will have already gone into the forest to locate where the gorillas slept the previous night and will have began to track their movements. The guides will communicate with your team through a park ranger who will then know which way to proceed. Locating the gorillas can take a few hours or the whole day depending on how far the have moved from their resting place. For conservation purposes, time allowed with the Gorillas is 1 hour. Once you have completed the trek you will return to the lodge, for a well earned rest. Overnight stay at Mahogany Springs, breakfast, lunch and dinner.
