What to expect from a Gorilla Trekking Safari
Meet Your Guide and Briefing: There are a certain number of habituated gorilla families in Uganda and in Rwanda. Upon meeting your guide in the morning, you will be assigned a specific gorilla family for your trek. You will also receive a comprehensive briefing on safety around gorillas, and how to act in close proximity to these intelligent animals. Gorillas are very susceptible to human germs so there will also be further precautions taken to ensure there are no human flu or diseases passed from yourself to a gorilla during your interaction.
Gorilla Trek: Gorilla families move continually within their greatly defined mountainside areas. Your trekking will last as long as it takes to get to their current location through the mountain paths and hills. It is beautiful (sometimes tiring) walking and guides will stop the group regularly to ensure no exhaustion sets in. Guides will also generally assign hikers of different strengths and fitness to different gorilla families (the stronger hikers will be given a family that is most likely further away from the starting point)
Gorilla Interaction: The gorilla interaction is a strictly regulated affair lasting exactly one hour. Gorillas are inquisitive by nature and interact freely, but touching the mountain gorillas is prohibited. Your time with the gorillas will be an enchanting experience that will live with you for a lifetime.
