MOUNTAIN GORILLA TREKKING ETHICS.

It’s important to note that mountain gorillas occupying the national parks of Rwanda, Uganda and Democratic Republic of Congo have a main purpose to satisfy the human exposure. Some have been assimilated into a habituation process that has made it possible for gorilla trekking enthusiasts to actually explore these gentle apes because through the habituation process they slowly adopt to human presence.
There are some few societal interactions that could be not as significant to the missioned tourist but we advise that they should take heed because every step of a safari counts and contributes equivalently to the ultimate experience.
