Accommodation: Buhoma Lodge, Trekkers Tavern, The Haven Lodge, Silverback Lodge, Bakiga Lodge

Start off the day with a morning cup of African coffee at 8:00am, then transfer to the briefing point. While here the park rangers will equip you with guidelines to follow during the tacking. Please make it a point to carry along with you a rain jacket, drinking water, packed lunch and trekking boots. A specific gorilla family will be assigned to you to track. In a group of eight people, the park rangers will lead you into the forest to go track the gorillas.

Tracking may take between 2 and 5 hours plus an hour of interacting and watching the gorillas family, a fascinating experience. Photograph taking is allowed but while following guidelines (no flash). Return to your lodge for refreshments and lunch. Later in the afternoon, walk around the villages exploring different local communities living around the park.
