Today you go to track the rare mountain gorillas. After a briefing from your ranger guide, begin tracking the mountain gorillas through the ancient Mgahinga Gorilla National Park which can take a couple of hours or a whole day depending on the location of the apes. Keep an eye out for forest species such as buffaloes, elephants, black fronted duikers and bush bucks. It is a humbling experience to stand just meters from man’s distant cousins as they eat rest, play and bond with their young. Follow the mountain gorillas as they range freely in the bambo forest and discover their gorgeous natural habitat and the many species they share it with. After a well-earned trip to the gorillas, you will drive back to your lodge for an overnight. You can rest your tired legs and restorative massage, offered from the gorilla tracking experience!

It was formed to protect the rare Mountain gorillas that inhabit its dense forests and it’s a habitant for the rare golden monkey.
