Day 2: Gorilla Tracking Rwanda. 

After an early morning breakfast, you will drive to transfer to the park headquarters. Go for briefing and then later through the forest start the search for the gorillas.  Tracking gorillas is through mountainous forest and therefore, you are required to wear hiking shoes and a rain coat in-case it rains. Proceed with the trek in the forest searching for gorillas and on meeting them you will be allowed to spend 1 hour following then. Later on you will return to the starting point.  Drive to transfer back to Kigali. End of 2 days gorilla tracking safari Rwanda.
