Another unusual feature of the park is that it is one of the very few in Africa that must be experienced by foot. In groups of eight you’ll trek this dramatic natural setting accompanied only by an expert guides and trackers. As some groups of gorillas settle higher up the mountain ranges, the treks often range between 2 to 8 hours before your first encounter.

The guides are very informative, the place is beautiful and the porters are very helpful on the slippery parts.
