A reasonable degree of fitness is required as well as a strong pair of walking shoes, together with packed lunch and water. After, a guide will lead you to move inside the thick forest to search for these endangered mountain gorillas, possibly one of the most exciting and memorable encounter with the great apes. On the way, you are entertained by baboons, black and white colobus monkeys, red tailed monkeys, birds to mention but a few. You spend just an hour with the apes watching them as they interact.
