Gorilla tracking is a very captivating activity; it involves walking in the wilderness in search of these great apes. Fewer than 650 mountain gorillas and 40,000 lowland gorillas are left in the world.
Their existence continues to be threatened as increasing human populations continue to decrease the gorillas’ habitats
Gentle and intelligent creatures, gorillas are more closely-related to humankind than many would expect. There are two spots for tracking these gorillas and from where you can have an excellent vintage view of a gorilla in its majestic style.
These rare animals are sometimes hard to find and that’s what makes tracking an exciting adventure in the under mentioned parks.
