The gorillas are wild but have become used to seeing humans after years of habituation, so you can watch young gorillas playfully interact with their parents, while a silverback looks straight at you.

The trek itself requires some stamina and a degree of luck, but you will be rewarded with an unforgettable and magical encounter with these wonderful primates.
