Gorilla Trekking Process
A gorilla trek is such an exceptional safari activity for everyone to take on while on vacation holiday in Rwanda, Uganda and the DR Congo.
Before the trek, ensure to take early breakfast for sometimes tracking a certain Gorilla group in the thick forest may take longer i.e more than 5 hours and on an empty stomach it is quite tiring and exhausting. After breakfast, proceed to the headquarters of the different National Parks for orientation regarding the Dos and Don’ts around the Mountain Gorillas in their natural forest vegetation habitat.
Carry packed lunch to eat at lunch break during the tracking process depending on how far a preferred Gorilla group is currently located according to the Park Rangers for some treks are hectic and require some physical fitness depending on the exact location of the Gorillas in the thick green forest vegetation.
In Uganda, a gorilla group is tracked when you are booking the gorilla permits whereas in Rwanda, tourists get allocated at the exact day for gorilla trekking.
Upon locating and finding the gorillas, viewing is limited to strictly one hour. This is because there is need to reduce human and animal interaction so that sustainability is maintained. For the Gorillas are wild animals that need to search for what to eat you are never allowed to feed them so when you take long with them, you deny them the chance to be free in their natural forest vegetation.
