Day 2 – Gorilla trekking day

With the appropriate clothing for Gorilla trekking, have breakfast, pick your packed lunch boxes plus water and emergency supplies. Drive to the park headquarters where you shall find the park rangers and guides waiting to take you through the Gorilla trekking rules and regulations before leading you to your allocated Gorilla family. The nature of the forest and the terrain explain the vigorous activity that Gorilla trekking turns out to be, so any kinds of mental and physical preparedness are crucial. It might take you less or a much longer time to locate the Gorillas but once you find them, they are so magical! Excited as you might be, give them their space as you watch and photograph them.
