Early breakfast and drive to the Volcano National Park offices

0700hrs; registration and briefing about gorilla tracking commences. The park staff determines which group of gorillas you will visit. He also discusses your fitness level and advises you of the trekking times and conditions to the various groups based upon their location in the park the previous evening. Once the trekkers are put into groups, each group’s Lead Guide briefs the trekkers of the trekking procedures as well as the “do’s and don’ts” while in the presence of gorillas. After the briefing, trekkers return to their respective vehicles for the drive up the mountain to the starting trail.

It is advisable for trekkers to wear camouflage attire to create a forest-friendly ambience.
Trekking can take from four to six or more hours if the gorillas move before the park rangers locate them the next morning. The guides stop frequently to allow trekkers a chance to rest and take photos along the way. However, upon spotting your gorilla family, you only spend one hour watching how they feed and play in their natural habitat.

Lunch at your hotel
In the afternoon, drive back to Kigali to be dropped-off at your place of choice in Kigali.
