Day 3: Gorilla Tracking 

After breakfast, we transfer to the park. After completing our park formalities, we embark on a once in a life time experience of tracking mountain gorillas.

Once you spot them you are allowed to spend an hour watching the primates. This is perhaps one of the most breathtaking wildlife experiences on earth!!! You get so close to these awesome giant primates. Tracking the gorillas through the light mountain forest on the slopes of the Virunga is a magical experience.

Be back at the base in time for lunch! Some gorilla families however are more elusive and tracking can take a full day, especially when it is wet and muddy. Later you will be  transferred to the airport.
