  2. During Gorilla trekking
  3. After the Gorilla trekking

The combination of the above three points make up what is considered as Gorilla trekking duration. These all happens in the day when you are doing the gorilla trekking after leaving your lodge where you spent a night from. Please note that you have to get a lodge which is near your trekking sector. Many travelers especially self-drive guests tend to book the lodge which is not on the same sector where your gorilla permit indicates. Bwindi impenetrable national park has for sectors where Gorilla trekking is done those are Ruhija, Buhoma, Rushaga and Nkuringo. These sectors are far from each other.

Depending on the location where the gorilla family is located or was found from. Sometimes the rangers will communicate with your driver guides to come and pick you up at certain point. You will then come back to the park headquarters where you will share memories with other travelers and the guide on how the Gorilla experience was. The park always organizes the trekking certificates for all the trekkers who have successfully trekked the gorillas. This ceremony takes around 10 to 20 minutes then you drive back to your lodge for refreshments.

You can budget for other extra evening activities if you wish. Gorilla trekking duration is one of the key things to consider when planning for your Gorilla safari in any country where Gorilla trekking is done.
