Gorilla Tracking for PWDs
Thanks to the creation of stretcher beds and sedan chairs supported by four handles, it is possible for Persons With Disabilities to track gorillas too. Upon these beds, you will be ferried into the forest by four able-bodied men.
As you take in the beauty of the park, the ranger guide accompanying you will explain the fascinating adaptations of wildlife species that are unique to this gem. You will also discover the surrounds in search of forest elephants, buffaloes and other forest species and learn of their incredible struggle against the elements of Africa's harsh wilderness.
You will get up close and personal with lots of birds especially fish eagles that soar over rivers in search for food. In the end, you will see how these absolutely social, superbly adapted gorillas interact with each other to spot out rival gorillas spying on them.
A few things to bear in mind:
Ensure to purchase your trek permits in advance, there is a limited number available for each day.
As you enter the rain forest, the temperature drops and it gets cooler. So carry warm clothing and rain jackets.
