Eye to eye with a mountain gorilla
 
Gorilla trekking in Rwanda is quite rightly at the top of many people’s wildlife bucket lists. It’s a once in a lifetime experience, challenging, but where the wildlife encounter at the end makes everything worthwhile.
The rainforest clad volcanoes of northern Rwanda are home to families of endangered mountain gorillas. We will take you through breathtaking scenery to the volcanic foothills to prepare for your ascent. Each day 36 people in parties of six are led by expert guides to find different gorilla families. To protect the gorillas, teams of rangers shadow them 24 hours a day so your chances of finding them are high.
The gorilla are found in the Virunga Mountains. Critically endangered, the only other place they can be seen is in neighbouring Uganda. Primarily herbivores, these huge, gentle creatures live in stable family groups. Mutual grooming is an important activity which reinforces social bonds.
You will trek through the undergrowth with a guide, often for several hours, until you come upon a gorilla group. Keeping a respectful distance, you’ll then have time to sit and watch the gorilla eat, groom, and play. Slow moving, the gorilla are easy to track, and unperturbed by the presence of human visitors.
