The tracking time and exact moment to view the gorillas cannot be guaranteed as all this depends on where the gentle giants last fed from the previous evening and how fast or energetic the trackers are.

After the successful gorilla trek, you will then return to the park's headquarters for a gorilla graduation ceremony where you will receive certificates confirming your participation in the Gorilla tracking.
