Important Notes About Your Gorilla Trek

On the day of your gorilla trek, your Tauck group will be subdivided into smaller groups of no more than eight trekkers each, based on fitness levels. You should expect the gorilla trek to be strenuous. Remember, these are "mountain" gorillas and they can only be reached by trekking up into the mountains to see them (there are no roads into their habitat).

You can expect your inbound trek to range from 40 minutes to 4 hours. Groups with lower fitness levels will visit those gorilla families closer to the trailhead, while groups with greater stamina will hike to more distant family groups. (Return treks to the trailhead will be downhill, and thus take less time.)

Your mountain gorilla trek is at altitude. The elevation at the trailhead is approximately 7,000 feet (approx. 2,130 meters) above sea level, and from there, altitude increases as you climb upward into the mountain gorillas’ habitat. Groups will stop for frequent rests, and they will be accompanied by one or more porters who will carry guests’ water, extra clothing, camera equipment, snacks, etc.

Please note that guests who are ill at the time of the trek may not be allowed to participate. Gorillas have fragile immune systems (and they are considered a critically endangered species), and minor illnesses in humans such as a common cold can be life-threatening to the gorillas.

The minimum age to participate in the gorilla trek is 15 years old. (That’s for humans; there is no minimum age for the gorillas to participate.)
