You may hire porters here for the trek to carry your backpack and gear. This service is recommended, especially for the elderly members of the society,or during the wet weather - as they will also assist by holding your hand to ease the walking.
Your trek starts in the cultivated villages offering nice views in all directions. 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 one-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!
