After our breakfast, start your Rwanda gorilla tracking safari by driving to the headquarters for briefing by park officials at 8 am and after entering into the jungle to search for the shy mountain endangered gorillas in Rwanda. Requirements like firm walking shoes, hut, insect repellent, sunscreen, rain gears, packed lunch, and bottled water are a must plus other tools that one may need once in the tropical rain forest. The gorilla trekking experience in Volcanoes is beyond gorilla alone. The sights of the Volcanic Mountains that stretch from Congo through Rwanda to Uganda, the verdant green vegetation that shelters their slopes, the counts of birds along with fauna like duikers and buffaloes combine to generate lasting safari memories. The gorilla trekking activity tends to last from 2 to 8 hours or more depending on the day’s gorilla movement. The one hour of direct encounter with the gorillas brings you closer to these ancient apes, look into their eyes, the gigantic structure that makes the most powerful of all apes, and see them forage and play before retreating to the lodge for relaxation, dinner, and overnight.
