If it was further then you will trek longer and vice versa. When you finally get to see the Mountain Gorilla family, then you are allowed to spend a maximum of 1 hour watching their lifestyle and take all the memorable photos and videos.
After then, you trek back to the start point for a drive back to your hotel. You refresh, relax and have dinner at lodge where you spend the night as of the previous day.
After breakfast at your hotel, you will embark on a return drive to Kigali. You again cross the border from Goma then continue to Kigali.
You guide will ensure drop off at place of residence in Kigali or to Kigali International Airport for a departure flight.
If you want to have one of the most amazing experiences like climbing up an active volcano — and spending the night at the summit. It was a routine patrol around a.
The attack is the latest in the part of eastern Congo home to some of the world's last mountain gorillas.
The attack is the deadliest since April of last year when 17 people — 12 of them rangers — were killed in the worst episode of violence in the park's history.
De Merode himself survived an assassination attempt after being shot several times in the chest and abdomen in The Congolese Institute for Nature Conservation , the agency that manages protected areas in the country, says the latest attack occurred while rangers were patrolling the central sector of the park, near a newly constructed electric fence meant to prevent intrusions into the protected area.
We thought this was the end of it but then we heard some more gorilla screams in the distance and 3 new gorillas appear about 50 meters away from us.
The rangers got really excited and said another family was nearby. There would be a chance that Bonane and the silverback of the other family could fight!
Eastern lowland gorillas primarily fight for territory and females and we could be seeing some of this happen!
Some of the rangers ran off to survey the scene and we waited, watching Bonane and his females waiting for something to happen.
In the end, the fight never happened and the family walked away to another tree to resume their daily life. All in all, what an incredible experience.
Words can only do so much to describe an encounter with gorillas and my mental thesaurus is lacking. Here are many many videos and pictures to let you know what to expect!
After our epic experience, we hiked the hour back and was back at the campsite by around 2pm. Our driver was waiting for us and we drove back to Bukavu while stopping to take many amazing photos of the Congolese scenery.
We arrived back at Lodge Coco around 4pm. Like gorilla trekking in Rwanda or Uganda, you must pre-arrange your gorilla trek permits in advance. You cannot just show up to the park the day of.
In Rwanda and Uganda, it is so popular you need to buy these permits well in advance. Getting a picture in the Kahuzi Biega National Park. For the Kahuzi Biega, there was almost no information online of how to properly book this, and almost no travel agencies to speak of in Rwanda or in the DRC.
I tried numerous emails that were never answered because the wrong information was put online! I ended up Twitter messaging a lady named Gloria who manages the park and finally getting the right information.
Simply email Info Kahuzi-Biega. The Kahuzi Biega National park will send you an invitation letter The Virunga National Park will do the same thing.
You cannot take a flight to Kinshaasa for example. Gorilla trekking in the Congo is not only an unforgettable experience but it will be the most kind to your wallet.
Here is a breakdown of all the money we spent for two people hiking, exclusive of international flights in USD.

The provisional toll is six park rangers killed along with two Mai-Mai," local government delegate Alphonse Kambale told AFP.
Another park warden from the Congolese Institute for the Conservation of Nature ICCN was also seriously injured. Mai-Mai is an umbrella term for community-based militias.
Mai-Mai militants in the Congo were blamed for ambushing ecodefenders in the Virunga National Park.
