After a rather early breakfast, transfer to the Park Offices for the highlight of your safari, a memorable encounter with the Gentle Forest Giants!
At this stage you will be allocated a gorilla family in groups of 8 as well and gorilla tracking guides/rangers. Basically here you are given information about gorillas, appropriate precautions and generally the impenetrable forest. Expect to walk between 2 and 8 hours in steep and sometimes muddy conditions with rain overhead, which can be tough and require some kind of fitness. However you will not remember all these after you have come face to face with a Mountain Gorilla silverback. It is simply worth the trek.

Once you are with the gorilla family, you will spend approximately one hour with them as they go about their daily life; feeding, moving, playing, raising their young and sometimes wrestling by the juveniles, typical of any family setting. Dinner and overnight at Mahogany Springs. (B-L-D)
