Keep alert as you may here the young ones making noises as they swing from one tree to another, and when you finally come face to face with them, you will be fascinated by the sheer size of the silverback (the dominant male). It is an unusual feeling sitting there within this thick rainforest aware that you are with a couple of the very few surviving mountain gorillas.  in case you have some extra energy you will have a guided walk in the afternoon along the Munyaga River trail where you will see the beautiful waterfalls, a diversity of vegetation cover several birds plus an array of colorful butterflies.
