Gorilla Tracking

Enjoy an early breakfast and set off to met the apes and wonders of the rainforest.

There are two populations: One is found in the Virunga volcanic mountains of Central/East Africa, within three National ParksMgahinga, in southwest UgandaVolcanoes, in northwest Rwanda; and Virunga, in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The other population is found in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Mountain gorillas are descendants of ancestral monkeys and apes found in Africa and Arabia during the start of the Oligocene epoch (34–24 million years ago). The fossil record provides evidence of the hominoid primates (apes) found in east Africa approximately 22–32 million years ago. The fossil record of the area where mountain gorillas live is particularly poor and so its evolutionary history is not clear.[5]

It was about 8.8 to 12 million years ago that the group of primates who were to evolve into gorillas split from their common ancestor with humans and chimps

The fur of the mountain gorilla, often thicker and longer than that of other gorilla species, enables them to live in colder temperatures.[8] Gorillas can be identified by nose prints unique to each individual. The mountain gorilla is daytime mammals, spending most of the day eating, as large quantities of food are needed to sustain its massive bulk. It feeds in the early morning, rests during the late morning and around midday, and in the afternoon it feeds again before resting at night. Each gorilla builds a nest from surrounding vegetation to sleep in, constructing a new one every evening. Only infants sleep in the same nest as their mothers. They leave their sleeping sites when the sun rises at around 6 am, except when it is cold and overcast; then they often stay longer in their nests.

Take a photo moment and then Enjoy the rest of day relaxing after a satisfying jungle experience.
