Climbing Lions

After early morning breakfast, and with your picnic lunch, we take a short drive to the park offices for a briefing where we meet the excellent local guides and trackers who give a talk on the etiquette of gorilla trekking. We then hike into the forest to a spot where gorillas were seen the previous night and track from there. Trekking may take anything between 1 to 6 hours depending on the location of the family and altitudes, which is in excess of 7500 feet. The terrain is rough and muddy calling for physical fitness. Although the hike is physically demanding, the beauty of the forest and surrounding scenery make the trekking worthwhile. Later in the afternoon, you will go for the Batwa community encounter which takes you to meet the original indigenous people who live in this conservation area. They will entertain you through their cultural dance and music as well as giving you their historic stories. Later go back to the lodge for a relaxed evening plus dinner and overnight.
