Extend your East African safari with this independent 5-day/4-night adventure that's sure to be one of the high points of your life as you trek into the rain forest in search of these gentle giants. Join expert trackers and guides to search for gorillas in their lush native habitat on two separate trekking expeditions, each of which includes one hour in the company of the gorillas.
