Your trek will take about an hour to five hours to reach the gorillas depending on which group you`ve been assigned.
The terrain changes as we go deeper from farmland to bamboo forests, into stinging nettles and rainforest before you find the gorillas. Trackers leave before the tourist groups to locate the gorilla groups, and once you`ve found the group you will have one hour with them. Make sure you take plenty of extra film. Drive back to the lodge for overnight.
