Day 4: Gorilla trekking adventure
Your tours representative from Wal-Mark Africa Safaris will escort you to the ORTPN park headquarters for short briefing before setting off to the mountain slopes to search for the few left Giant primates- The Legendary Mountain Gorillas in Africa ! The trek is strenuous and the time taken to encounter the gorillas is surely erratic but it is an exciting experience on meeting of the gorillas. Encounters will depend on the movements of the gorillas and since their movements depend on how near their food may be in the forest, the time taken may not be known but an encounter is a worthwhile.
