The majority of the time, people discuss gorilla trekking and tracking activities on their blogs thinking that these are the same things, and this is not necessarily true. The two worlds are totally different because of all the activities involved with the gorillas. But the difference is who? Here we come up with a wonderful explanation of how these two can be differentiated. Please read this below to get more light.

First of all, the activity of gorilla tracking is manned and done by the experts, who, among others, include the rangers, researchers, and guides. This involves these people following the particular gorilla family to locate its best known and most known location, knowing where they slept the last or previous night and also their feeding habits. Tracking the gorillas can be done for research purposes, especially when doing the gorilla census and also tracking before the visitors discover that the visitors can locate these mountain gorillas very easily. As a result, they guarantee a near 100% chance of seeing the gorillas regardless of how the gorillas move about in their various regions inside their several parks once the gorilla tracking activity is done. Gorilla tracking is comparable in Uganda’s Bwindi and Mgahinga national parks, Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park, and lastly in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s Virunga National Park.

Gorilla trekking involves, on the other hand, occurs when visitors are at the aforementioned national parks and then travel into the forest to see and experience the endangered mountain gorillas in their natural habitat. The terrain and the slopes in the gorilla parks, such as in Bwindi National Park, Mgahinga National Park, volcanoes National Park, and Virunga Public Park, most resemble all the parks covered with thick tropical rainforests and bamboo. Because of the steepness of certain mountain parks and virunga masif slopes, the varieties are exceedingly minor.

Here, the activity of trekking the gorillas comes early in the morning, when the guests arrive after eating an early morning breakfast and then arrive at the separate education centers by 7:30 a.m., where they will be trained on gorilla following principles before being assigned to a gorilla family to follow, with a limit of eight tourists per gorilla family/gathering. The gorilla trek takes anywhere from one to eight hours before the explorers meet the gorilla family. The time it takes for a gorilla to travel depends on a number of factors, including territory, the development of gorilla families, the strength and ability of the explorers, and so on. Whatever the case may be, meeting the mountain gorillas after such a long journey is unquestionably thrilling. If the gorillas are found, one hour will be enough for you to see them. As you see them, you can ask anything you want to know about them.
