Gorilla trekking takes around 2 – 8 hours, which is worth it as those into hiking will have a great time climbing up and about the rolling hills, and going through the lush vegetation.
Depending on the availability of the permits at the time of your confirmation, you may do gorilla tracking from Buhoma, Rushaga and Ruhija.
