How many days are needed for Gorilla tracking in the wild? – Guaranteed Gorilla trekking permits – Choosing the easiest Gorilla family to trek
How many days are needed for Gorilla tracking? it has been a common question and many have discussed it on different forums like trip advisor and lonely planet, but some travelers talk of the length of Gorilla tracking and they mean, how many days does the Gorilla safari take and others do mean the length on the actual day of Gorilla tracking in Uganda or Rwanda.
Some clients, who have trekked Mountain Gorillas before, collectively agree that the length of the Gorilla experience is unpredictable but in most cases, it takes between 30 minutes and three-quarters of the day. Groups with senior citizens and unfit will trek a Gorilla family that is nearer and in 30 minutes to 1 hour they come back but some are fit and well prepared, would go far to look for the Mountain Gorillas that inhabit in high elevations, and this is the reason why we advise our client’s to take prior physical exercise before the actual trek.
A Gorilla tracking safari takes a minimum of 3 days, with one day of the actual Gorilla tracking and 2 days for transfers from and back to Entebbe International Airport/Kampala, Kigali International Airport to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. This is what most of the travelers refer to as the length Gorilla safari takes.
But when we talk of Gorilla trekking we mean the actual trek on the day of Gorilla trekking. Gorilla safari length depends on various factors and that is why we are not specific but we give you a time flame and between that, we believe that you would be back from the forest as the trekking is not done at night.
Mountain Gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park live in the high altitudes, so you may choose a Gorilla family that is far away from the starting point; this means you will take a long while on the trek and you can come back late evening. Another fact is that Mountain Gorillas live in the wild, so they are always on the move looking for food, because of fights with other families when they meet, you might find a Gorilla family when it has moved from a close distance.
Visitors that double trek are given different Gorilla families each day, so they can tell if the first trek was long or short.
