Your trek again starts in the cultivated foothills of the Virunga’s offering stirring views in
all directions. When it enters the national park, trekkers will be immersed in the
mysterious intimacy of the rainforest, alive with the colorful bird calls, chattering
golden monkeys, littered with fresh spoor of the mountains’ elusive buffalo and
elephant. Through gaps in the canopy, the magnificent peaks are glimpsed, among
the highest in Africa yet easily accessible, beckon an ascent.

Weaving through overhanging vines, moss-covered hagenia trees and giant lobelias
that thrive in the tropical climate, our experienced trackers, who have spent their
entire lives in or close to this forest, soon bring us up close with one of the Gorilla
Families.

Upon sighting the gorillas, you will stay with them for a magical hour as they go about
their daily life, feeding, playing, resting; raising their young. Coming face to face with
a giant silverback must truly be one of the greatest wildlife experiences on earth!
