For example bird watching, gorilla trekking, Chimpanzee tracking, wildlife safaris, city tours and cultural interactions among the local peopel.The virunga volcanoes harbors a bigger number of gorillas and tracking is easily done on the slopes of the mountain that is surrounded with bamboo. It’s a place where the late Dian Fossey is believed to have carried out his studies on the features of the endangered Mountain gorillas for over 20 years.

To much joy may driving you closer to them but it’s advisable that you keep some distance between you and them for security reasons.
