Gorilla Trekking & Departure
Wake up early in the morning and have morning breakfast. Pick your trekking equipment, enough drinking water, and packaged lunch and set off with your safari guide/driver to park’s headquarters for a short briefing by the park warden before taking gorilla trek. At 8:30 am, you drive to the trekking starting point, in your respective groups you will follow the specific trail that will lead you into the jungle in search of gorilla families with help of well-armed game ranger. Finding the mountain gorillas depends on where these endangered mountain gorillas slept the previous night
or on their movement when searching for food. The trek can take half an hour to 6 hours. You will spend only one hour with these endangered mountain gorillas, see them feeding, breastfeeding, silverback guarding the family, playing and you will interact with them. After the trek, report back to the park’s headquarters where you will be rewarded with a trekking certificate. Drive back to the lodge, have refreshments and then check-out of the lodge and transfer back to Kigali international airport where you will catch up with your flight back home.
