A group of not more than eight trekkers along with a guide, an armed ranger and porters you shall ascend into park to track the assigned gorilla group.
The time taken to track these shy giants varies from a few minutes to several hours. Chances of not finding the gorillas are very slim, in fact by the time you start the trek, your guide/ranger has an idea of where to find them using his knowledge of gorilla movements and their known location the day before. When you finally locate your gorilla group, a maximum of one hour is allowed to observe and photograph the gorillas.
After the thrilling gorilla experience, you check out and travel back to Kigali to your preferred drop-off point or Airport for your return flight.
