Gorilla Trekking and Batwa Cultural Tour

Gorilla Trekking and Batwa Cultural Tour

After an early morning breakfast, and with your picnic lunch, you will take a short drive to the park offices for a briefing where you will meet the excellent local guides and trackers who give a talk on the etiquette of gorilla trekking. You will hike into the forest to where gorillas were seen the previous night and track from there. The terrain is rough and muddy calling for physical fitness. Although the hike is physically demanding, the beauty of the forest and surrounding scenery make the trekking worthwhile. It is recommended that you take plenty of water with you on the trek. Cameras and plenty of fast-speed films are recommended. Being a tropical rain forest, it may rain at no notice, hence need to bring with you waterproof clothing, including zip-lock bags for cameras and film. Others to come with include sturdy hiking boots, long pants, gloves, and a raincoat. The maximum time spent with the gorillas is 1 hour. Your dinner and overnight stay will be at Rushaga Gorilla Camp.
