Day 4 Gorilla Tracking

After an early breakfast, you will proceed to the National Park headquarters – Kinigi to meet your guides for the day. After completing our park formalities, we are embark on a once in a life time experience of tracking mountain gorillas. Once you spot them you are allowed to spend an hour watching your closest long lost cousin. This is perhaps one of the most breathtaking wildlife experiences on earth! You get so close to these awesome giant primates. You stare at each other blankly not knowing who to break the long silence first. Tracking the gorillas through the light mountain forest on the slopes of the  Virunga is a magical experience. These massive primates are extremely rare, with less than 700  living today. You will get within meters of the family, and be privileged to spend relatively high altitude. We encourage for your own enjoyment to make sure that you are perfectly fit and healthy. (We’ve had visitors of 70 years old do gorilla tracking so this should not be a problem; all  you need do is ask your driver guide to request a closer group, if you feel you cannot trek far). It  is important to bring good hiking boots, long trousers, gloves for protection against stinging nettles, some snacks & sweets (for you, not the gorillas) as well as sufficient drinking water as the  rain forest gets hot and humid during the day. You will spend one hour with the gorillas, but it is an hour you will never forget. Return to your hotel for lunch and later dinner and overnight.
