You will first enjoy a sumptuous breakfast at the lodge and then head to the park headquarters for a briefing over coffee about what you should expect while on the gorilla trekking adventure. The park officials will also share rules and regulations you should take seriously and adhere to. You will then be placed in groups of 8 and allocated a gorilla group to track, and the allocation is based on the physical fitness levels of the travelers. Thereafter, embark on the search of the mountain gorillas in their natural habitat being led by park rangers. While in the search of the gorillas, be on the lookout to spot other park animals like chimpanzees, forest hogs, forest elephants among so many others. Once you encounter the gorillas, marvel at their gentility and giant nature and watch them feed, play, rest, groom each other, make resting nests and whatever else you will find them doing. Take pictures and videos of the gorillas that you will share with family and friends when you return home. After the allocated time is elapsed, trek back to the starting point with a lunch stopover where you can enjoy your packed lunch in the jungles. Gorilla trekking in Rwanda can take any time between 30 minutes to 4 hours or more depending on the location of the gorillas.
