It extends over 260 km2 and its altitude ranges from 1220 to 1800 meters above sea level. There are several large lakes in the park which are fed by the Rwizi River with Lake Mburo being the largest of them. The park mainly consists of open Savannah and acacia woodland while papyrus swamps line the verges of the lakes.

At 0800, together with the ranger guides and porters, you head for the forest to start on our adventure. The Ranger guides will guide through the bush pushing your way through the undergrowth, parting thick creepers, to track the gorillas. The trek can take from half an hour to 7 hours – a reasonable degree of fitness is required as well as a sturdy pair of walking shoes.

Once you are close to the group the guides will ask you to leave behind your bags as no food items should be carried close to the gorillas. Just take your cameras with you as you are about to meet the gentle giants!

Stand still in the forest and watch the gorillas, listening to them grumble to each other and marvel at the sheer size of the dominant male; the silverback. It is an extraordinary feeling sitting in the dense rain forest knowing you are with a few of the last remaining mountain gorillas – sadly enough there are only about 950 of these beautiful creatures left. You are allowed exactly one hour with the gorillas before returning to the base station. Return to the lodge to relax and reflect on your experience and sharing pictures.
