Day 4

Gorilla trekking and transfer to kigali

Gorilla trekking and transfer to kigali

After breakfast, we will assemble at the Park Offices for a detailed briefing before heading out on foot to track Mountain Gorilla with guides from the local community. This exclusive experience is a real privilege, as group sizes are limited and only one group is allowed to view each gorilla group each day. So, viewing permits are almost as scarce as the gorillas! On occasions the Gorillas prove elusive, but often can be found within an hour or more by the expert local tracker guides.

It is a very emotionally moving once in a lifetime experience to stare in to the eyes of these gentle giants and watch them play and go about their daily activities. Each encounter with the gorillas is different and has its own rewards, but you are likely to enjoy the close view of adults feeding, grooming and resting as the young frolic and swing from vines in a delightfully playful display. On our return we will kick start a 3-4hour drive to Kigali reaching in the evening.
