Day 3 and 4 : Lopé National Park - Gorilla Tracking

Accommodation :
1 Night Mikongo Camp - 1 Night train \ 2 Breakfast \ 2 Lunch \ 2 Dinner
Activities : Wildlife Viewing, Bushwalk, Hiking, Gorilla Tracking. Swimming in freshwater.

After an early breakfast and briefing at your hotel, we drive off to Mikongo rainforest in Lopé National Park where we’ll spend the next two days. The journey is exciting with beautiful views to see, the vehicle can be stopped at any time to take good pictures. Up on arrival in Mikongo bush camp, set off for the western lowland gorilla tracking inside the Mikongo rainforest.

Enjoy gorilla tracking the highlight of the trip, which may last the entire day. We trek the gorillas through the rainforest guided by experienced trackers. The walking can sometimes be tough and long, but when you catch a glimpse of the magnificent silverback, any discomforts will be quickly forgotten. When the gorillas are sighted, visitors will be guided to within 6 metres from the gorillas. For conservation purposes, time spent with the gorillas is limited to one hour.

Gorilla trekking is unpredictable. It's difficult to foresee how many hours you will hike. The gorilla excursion can take from 1 up to 4 hours. Expect to walk along distance in steep and muddy conditions, sometimes with rain overhead, before you encounter any gorillas. A good physical condition is recommended.
After tracking on day 11, come back to the hotel and relax. Take a sleep while waiting the night train at middle night for your transfer back to Libreville.
