    Hallo.
    We are 4 girls that lives in Tanzania, Tanga at the moment. We are very interesser in doing a gorilla track. We only have a long weekend to do the tracking and we have a few questions.
    Do you have to book far in advance? When do you recommend to do the trip? We are wondering if it’s possible to do gorilla tracking for two days?
