The time taken to trek gorillas depends on where the gorilla family you are going to trek is located, and it also depends on the weather conditions. It can take anywhere from two up to six hours of trekking through the mountainous forest at relatively high altitudes. Physical fitness is definitely recommended for those wishing to undertake the excursion.

Getting into contact with the gorillas after you have found them is one of the most memorable experiences you will ever have on this safari.
