Day 2

Gorilla Trekking

Gorilla Trekking

Today you will get up early and drive to Volcanoes National Park. Proceed to headquarters for a briefing and after that set off in the forest for gorilla trekking. A thrilling trek through the refined foothills of the Virungas led by an experienced ranger guide provides inspiring views in all directions. Gorilla trekking is quite strenuous but a worthwhile encounter for these gentle giants. Depending on the location of the gorillas on any given day, the walk can take anything from 1 to 7 hours. Once the family of gorillas has been located, settle into the environment and enjoy the hour you have to quietly observe these fascinating primates whose habits and mannerisms remind us so much of our own.
In the afternoon, visit the Iby' Iwachu Cultural Village, a beautiful project employing and empowering the community and providing alternatives to poaching, and enjoy an evening of entertainment.
