Gorillas in the Wild
Early this morning, we take you to Ruhengeri, the main base for gorilla trekking in Volcanoes National Park. After an important briefing from park guides, you’ll enter the park to begin this unforgettable adventure. There are four gorilla families habituated to human contact and their movements will determine the duration of today’s trek. Starting at an altitude of 6,500 feet, you’ll trek along densely forested slopes to catch up with your assigned gorilla family. After locating them, you’ll have an amazing opportunity to spend about one hour watching quietly as the gorillas go about their daily routine. Retrace your steps down the volcano and return to your lodge for the night. Meals B+L+D
