In the wet, muddy and humid conditions the trek can be fairly tiresome as you hike through the dense vegetation and climb to the base of the Virunga Volcanos where the groups are found. You need to be reasonably fit.

But the sheer thrill in coming across a gorilla family, dominated by a great male silverback, more than outweighs any difficulty. You can get very close to the gentle mountain gorillas and watching their movements is like seeing a mirror image of yourself.  Your visit with the gorillas will last one unforgettable hour.

And you will have an opportunity to encounter a multitude of other rare wildlife including birds, antelopes, and golden monkeys, not to mention the beauty of the park itself.
