Gorilla Walk

Key information: Gorilla Walk

    • Walk with a guide through the misty bamboo forest of Virungas National Park to find groups of endangered gorillas.
    • Sit and watch these giants as they eat shoots and leaves and test out their family structures. While you need to keep a respectful distance, you will be able to observe these magnificent creatures closely as they eat, play and bicker.
    • A fascinating and inspiring, unpredictable walk; where you go and how long it takes will depend on where the gorillas are. If you are unlucky, you won't find the gorillas, so allow time to try more than once.
