When one talks about gorilla trekking whether in Uganda or Rwanda, it basically means following mountain gorillas. This involves a group of tourists who hike hills and beat the bush trying to follow and find a given family of mountain gorillas. Tourists are always guided by an official guide from Uganda Wildlife Authority in Uganda and or Rwanda Development Board for the sake of Rwanda. It is this trained guide that will lead the group of tourists to where the gorillas will be. During gorilla trekking, the guide will definitely do his work of identifying other animals, birds and trees to make the journey or trek enjoyable. He will always be in touch with gorilla trackers or what we call the advanced team who will keep on directing him to where a given gorilla family will be at that particular moment. The fact that gorillas leave in mountainous or hilly areas, they have to trek or hike to find them hence the term gorilla trekking.
