DAY 2: GORILLA TREKKING & IBYIWACU CULTURAL VILLAGE

After breakfast we take a short drive to Park Headquarters and meet with excellent and well informed local guides that keep in touch with the advance group trackers.

The guides will give a talk on the etiquette of gorilla tracking based on their experience with gorillas.

We then hike into the forest to where the gorillas were seen the night before and track from that point with the communication of the advance group. The trek can take from 1 to 6 hours and climb to altitudes not in excess of 7,500 feet. The terrain is rough and at times muddy. Although the hike is physically demanding the beauty of the forest and surrounding scenery make the trekking worthy. Once the gorillas are located all fatigue is forgotten, as the experience is often described as being the most profound natural history experience in the world.

Hiring a porter to help you currying your back bags is a good idea and they can give you a hand during hiking where possible.

Back to your lodge, you may have lunch and relax, later in the afternoon you may visit Ibyiwacu Culture Village and get the chance to explore our amazing culture and traditional lifestyle.
