On the day of gorilla habituation, travelers from Canada, USA, and other countries will wake up early in the morning for breakfast and then join their driver guides to transfer them to the sector offices. At the sector offices, will be wardens who will take the participants through the rules and regulations of the trekking activity. Later the trekkers which are always 4, researchers, and conservationists will be led by the armed ranger guides to the jungle to search for the mountain gorillas.

The search for the semi habituated mountain gorilla family in Nkuringo or Rushaga sectors can take 2-7 hours looking for where the mountain gorilla family is and this depends on the speed of trekkers and the location of the gorilla group. When the semi habituated mountain gorilla family is located, the trekkers are given 4 hours to be around the family, watch members do daily activities, take photos and learn about their habits. Spending four hours with Gorillas enables travelers from Canada or USA to be part of the activities that make mountain gorillas get used to human presence.
