Tracking mountain gorillas is energy demanding and you need to have some packed snacks/lunch plus bottled drinking water. This is because it involves navigating through the dense vegetation and steep slopes taking you about 2-6 hours to make a complete hike. One hour will be given to you to explore about these great apes’ behaviors, take pictures and then return to the lodge to rest. In the evening, you will participate in a cultural walk in Iby’Iwacu Cultural Center which lets you interact with local residents, learn about their cultures, enjoy the dances and music performances.
