Uganda gorilla trekking 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.
Spending time with a gorilla family, whether mountain or lowland, can be a life-changing experience. Tourism in East Africa’s remote rainforest areas of Tanzania, Congo, Uganda, and Rwanda directly contributes to the conservation of these critically endangered species and their habitat.
The experience necessitates a reasonable level of fitness because you will be hiking in humid conditions through dense vegetation and along steep, at times muddy, mountain tracks. Clothing and footwear should be suitable for these conditions. This helpful infographic will help you decide what kind of clothing to bring for your gorilla trekking adventure.
