    The Ultimate Gorilla tracking Experience

    Mountain gorillas are found in Uganda, Rwanda, and DR Congo and never in zoos. The trekking experience takes anything from 1 hour to 6 hours searching for these gentle giants depending on where they nested the previous night. Once you locate them, you only spend an hour with the gorillas. If you return to the lodge early enough after the trek and are still energetic, you have a chance of joining a community tour which lasts for about 2 hours.
