Day 3: Gorilla Tracking Adventure

Today you will be collected in the lobby by your driver/guide from the Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge for your Gorilla Tracking Adventure. The Volcanos National Park are home to eight families of Mountain Gorilla living on the slopes of the Virunga Volcanoes that you can trek to see. Gorilla treks take place in the morning and depart from the Park Headquarters at around 07:30am. Prior to departure you are given a briefing by park staff, assigned a gorilla family to visit and rangers to guide you. The treks take place on the slopes of the Virunga Volcanoes and clients should be in good physical condition as some of the trek can be physically demanding. The treks normally start in the cultivated land on the base of the volcanoes and then you are guided up into the beautiful dense misty forests. The trek normally lasts between 2 and 5 hours depending on the location of the gorilla family and a maximum of eight visitors is allowed per gorilla family. Once you reach the gorillas you are permitted to stay for one hour to view them. Descend to your lodge and enjoy dinner and overnight accommodation.
