Take an early morning breakfast at your lodge, head to the park headquarters with packed lunch for a compulsory briefing about the rules and regulations to follow while on the trek. The hike in search for these “Gentle Giants” can take 1-7 hours depending on their movements in their natural habitat. Once you meet them, the thrill of encountering the gorillas in the forest erases away all the poor memories you went through searching for them. It is worth the effort! You will be allowed to stay with the gorillas for 60 minutes (maximum), take photos, selfies, videos and enjoy gorillas feeds, playing and young ones swinging on tree. (NOTE: Avoid using flash when taking photos). Descend to your lodge for lunch and if you are not so worn out in the evening, head for a brief nature walk or visit local communities. Also available are curio shops, drinking joints, local school and orphanages among others.
