Enjoy the mountain gorilla trekking activity. It is done early mornings at 8:00am East African time. The gorilla species are known to be the world’s largest primates. These live in groups of 20 members led by a male silverback. They tend to move from place to place in search of food. It should be noted that the mountain gorillas do not feed in one point. They allow the grasses and plants to re-grow. Baby gorillas live under the care of their mothers until the age of 2 years. Once a dominant silverback is defeated in a group, it is isolated by the rest.

Gorilla trekking requires one to have a permit which is costs 1500USD. The permits are distributed by 8 per gorilla family and are scarce.
