Trekking mountain gorillas in Rwanda can last from 30 minutes to 7 hours depending on movements of these great apes. If you are not physically fit to carry heavy bags, you can hire porters to help you carry at about 10-15$.
No matter the many hours you will spend in search of these gorillas, you are given only one hour in their presence as you watch them feed young ones, groom each other, play especially the infants and other behaviors.
