Thereafter, hike into the forest where the gorillas were seen the night before and track from that point. Thereafter, enjoy lunch at the hotel and free* afternoon/evening to relax.
In Rwanda, there are 10 habituated gorilla groups that can be viewing by tourists. Each group can be visited by a maximum of 8 people per day and the visit lasts only 1 hour.
The trekking can take from 1 to 8 hours and climb to altitudes in excess of 7,500 feet. The terrain is rough and at times muddy. Although the hike is physically demanding the beauty of the forest and surrounding scenery make the trekking worthwhile. Once the gorillas are located all fatigue is forgotten, as the experience is often described as being the most profound natural history experience in the world. Cameras and plenty of fast speed film is recommended. It can rain at a few minutes notice; hence waterproof clothing is a good essential including zip lock bags for cameras and film. It is important to take plenty of water.
