For most people this is the absolute highlight of their tour to the region; depending on their movement due to best feeding area and other factors, this may take anything between 3 to 8 hours. Once the gorillas have been located, your group will be allowed a maximum of one hour with them... Coming face-to-face with a mountain gorilla is a truly humbling and emotional experience. This is a fantastic and privileged opportunity to get up close and personal with Uganda’s very own ‘Gorillas in the Mist’.
