Uganda Gorilla Trekking

Uganda allows the adventurous traveller to experience a more adventurous level of safari. It is the original Eden, with over 1000 species of birds and wildlife found nowhere else. Get up close and personal with mountain gorillas in their natural habitat. Every day, only eight visitors are permitted to view each gorilla family, and our expert guides will explain the etiquette involved in meeting a massive silverback.

Travel to Africa for a once-in-a-lifetime encounter with one of the planet’s rarest animals. Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is home to half of the world’s mountain gorillas. This dense rainforest in the southwest of Uganda is a World Heritage site with incredible biodiversity. Under 350 mountain gorillas live and play among the mossy undergrowth of the forest floor, surrounded by forests and lakes and dominated by the dramatic Virunga mountain range.

Best Time to Visit Uganda for Gorilla Trekking

The best time to visit Uganda is during its two dry seasons: December to February and June to August, when conditions are especially favorable for trekking to see mountain gorillas and chimps.

Game viewing in national parks is also excellent during this period, as well as between February and March. From September to early October, large numbers of wildlife can be seen at waterholes.

Temperatures barely vary throughout the seasons, ranging from 24°C to 30°C, allowing you to visit Uganda all year. At any time of year, the country is also excellent for bird watching.
