Day 3: Gorilla Tracking

After early breakfast, get your back packs with your cameras and packed lunch in, carry your raincoats and your shoes fitted with hiking boots, head to the departure point for Gorilla tracking. You will be briefed by the ranger/guide at the park on what to expect on this encounter. Later set out into the forest in search of the habituated Gorillas in their wild home. The trek itself is interesting and with luck may yield sights of other wild species that seek refuge in the forest including elephants, chimpanzee, various small antelopes, monkeys and a variety of bird species.

Follow the guides as they identify various clues like the gorilla nests, droppings to sometimes locate the where these gentle giants are as they wonder about the forest in search of a day’s meal. The trek may take just a few minutes to several hours depending on where the Gorillas are at the time of the trek. The encounter is rewarding as you get close to the gentle giants feeding, grooming while the youngsters swing from vine to vine in a delightful display. Spend an hour with the Gorillas upon location before returning to your accommodation.
