You will be told how you should walk while in the wild and what you will do after seeing the gorillas. After the briefing, you will be led by researchers and guides to the forest, while looking for the semi-habituated mountain gorilla families, you will be may encounter other wildlife species such as birds, small butterflies, and unique tree species which will be explained to you by the professional ranger.

Once you see the gorillas you will spend 4 hours with them. Remember that, you will see the gorillas that are being habituated and thus they are not yet fully used to the people and thus you will get a chance to participate in the activities that researchers do to make gorillas get used to the people such as the naming of the gorillas, calling them, collecting samples and others. After four hours you will return to the park headquarters where you started the activity and then earn yourself the gorilla habituation certificate and you will be driven back to your lodge for the overnight stay.
