It is 08 people are allowed to visit a gorilla family each day. There are 12 habituated gorilla families in the Volcanoes National Park for trekking therefore 120 people each day in the bamboo making photography much easier.

After the briefing, you are allocated different gorilla families that you are able to track some of the families are near the briefing area and other groups require driving a distance before the start of the hike. Regardless of the gorilla group allocated to you, there are always higher chances of sighting the gorillas in their habitat either feeding in the forest or playing around with their young ones.
