The village provides tourists experiences beyond wildlife viewing, the people, culture and how they live.
The village also gives a chance to the visitors to enjoy the eight different local dances, listen to Gorilla songs, local food preparations, visit the local healer, visit the king’s place and get to hear all the old stories. After the cultural entertainment, you will return to the lodge for dinner and overnight. Overnight at Da Vinci Gorilla Hotel
