The point of this tour

1The precious mountain gorillas

Mountain gorillas are a species of primate that is the closest to humans, and evolved from humans about 8 million years ago. It currently lives only in the forests of the Virunga Mountains that stretch through Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
In the 1980s, due to civil wars, overfishing, human disease transmission and deforestation, the number was temporarily reduced and designated as an endangered species.
Mountain gorillas have long hair and short arms and have better physical constitution than other gorillas.


2Small group of people

Gorilla tracking requires special permission to enter. For security reasons, an expert guide will accompany you, the maximum number of people who can enter is limited to 8 per day. The area to which the guide takes us will offer us a safe and relaxing tour.
The shortest excursion is 2 hours, the average is 4 hours and the length is 7 hours. However, as the group moves within the territory, the time required will vary.
