Best time to go gorilla trekking

Best time to go gorilla trekking. It is paramount to put in mind that Mountain gorillas can be tracked throughout the year because their movements are not affected by changing seasons. The best time to go gorilla tracking is in the dry season where the vegetation is not thick and the ground trails aren’t very slippery.
