En-route, your ranger will point out telltale signs of previous gorilla activity like dung, nests and chewed bamboo shoots. Depending on the location of the gorillas on any given day the walk can take anything from 2 to 7 hours. Once the family of gorillas has been located, settle enjoy the hour you have to quietly observe these fascinating primates whose habits and mannerisms remind us so much of our own.
