It is recommend going twice because the first time you can hardly believe what you are seeing and most people try desperately to capture the camera and video experience for an hour with the end result being that the person is sorely missed.That's why for the second time, you can just stop and relax and watch your amazing group.

There are about five or six groups (depending on where you see your gorilla) and the journey starts all over again. You always start walking through African villages, which is inspiring – the nature is so beautiful and the kids will walk with you, practice their English or just have fun with other companies.

Then, in Uganda's case, traverse through primary forest until you find your group.The hike can take anywhere from about an hour to around four or five hours – depending on the group you have and where you are.
