Endangered Gorillas in the African Jungles

Endangered Gorillas in the African Jungles

Joining the trek in search for these “Gentle Giants” in their natural habitat requires one to be moderately fit and not carrying any airborne diseases. Gorilla trekking starts early in the morning, following a substantial mountain busting breakfast at your lodge, and can take anything between 1 – 7 hours depending on the movements of the gorillas in the forest.

Accompanied by trained gorilla guides, armed rangers and, should you wish, porters, you will – in accordance with park regulations – spend an hour in the company of the gorillas, take photos – not using a flashlight, record videos, enjoy them playing, feeding, juveniles swinging on trees and sometimes fighting. Imagine a huge silverback charging towards you..!! Its a lifetime experience!
