Day 5 Gorilla Tracking

Go gorilla tracking, walking up steep densely forested hills before finally coming across the gorillas camouflaged in the vegetation. An inspiring moment! Sit in the forest among the gorillas, listening to them grumble to each other,and marvel at the sheer size of the dominant male; the silverback. It is an extraordinary feeling sitting in the dense rainforest knowing you are with a few of the last remaining mountain gorillas. It’s amazing to think there are only about 650 of these beautiful creatures left!

An option afternoon walk will lead you on the Munyaga River trail, which is an ideal short walk.
