We then hike into the forest to a spot where gorillas were seen the previous night and track from there. Trekking may take any thing between 1 to 6 hours depending on the family and altitudes which is in excess of 7500 feet. The terrain is rough and muddy calling for physical fitness. Although the hike is physically demanding, the beauty of the forest and surrounding scenery make the trekking worthwhile. Once the Great Apes(Gorillas are located all fatigue is forgotten as the experience is often described as being the most profound natural history experience in the world. Its recommended that you take plenty of water with you on the trek. Cameras and plenty of fast speed films are recommended. Being a tropical rain forest, it may rain at no notice, hence need to bring with you waterproof clothing, including zip lock bags for cameras and film.
