The trekkers are grouped not exceeding 8 people and armed ranger guides do lead the trek. Each group is given a gorilla family to trek and the time taken to locate the gorilla family is normally 2-7 hours which depends on the location of the gorilla family as well as the speed of the trekkers. During the search, trekkers should expect to meet different park mammals, primates, birds, and plans. When the mountain gorilla family is located, the trekkers are given 1 hour to be around the gorilla group, watch the members do daily activities, take photos, record videos and learn about the gorilla habits.
