Safari Highlights

Today we enjoy an encounter with the critically endangered mountain gorillas. The mountain gorillas are part of a worldwide population of just 880 individuals, and the gorillas we track today belong to one of several habituated family groups. Experienced guides will accompany us on our tracking, many of whom have been involved in the habituation process themselves.

The time taken to track the gorillas varies from half an hour to 9 hours before we return to camp, depending on the location of the gorillas. Once the gorillas are located, our group will be allowed a maximum of one hour with them. This is one of the world’s truly memorable experiences – a look into one of these magnificent creature’s eyes brings home the very special kinship that exists between them and us.
