After, follow the ranger guide to the forest to begin the search of our close relatives who shares almost 97% of human DNA make-up.
You will walk up steep densely forested hills before finally coming across the gorillas camouflaged in the vegetation a breathtaking moment one should not love to miss. The trek is unpredictable since gorillas are wild animals they keep on moving from one place to another searching for food, however it can take from an hour to eight hours depending on the gorilla family trekked, so a reasonable degree of fitness is needed as well as sturdy pair of walking shoes/boats as meeting them involves passing through muddy and steep slopes. It’s a breathtaking moment to sit among the gorillas listening to them grumble to each other, it’s an extraordinary feeling sitting in the forest knowing you are with a few of the last remaining mountain gorillas, it’s amazing that only 880 of these remaining creatures left.
Only one hour is allowed to stay with these animals while taking photography as well as studding their behaviors. On return, your driver will transfer you back to Kigali and later drop off at your hotel or at the airport to meet your scheduled flight back home.
