Uganga Safari

Gorilla Trekking

Uganda Gorilla Trekking Safari

Uganda’s unspoiled wilderness offers an incredible opportunity to witness the world of mountain gorillas up close. The gorilla trekking adventure is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that guarantees a lasting impression on your mind. Prepare yourself for an unforgettable journey that will take you deep into the captivating world of these magnificent creatures.

One of the highlights of this adventure is the mystical Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, a UNESCO World Heritage Site draped in ethereal mist. The forest is home to almost half the world’s remaining mountain gorilla population, making it one of the most critical locations for gorilla trekking.

To help you explore the forest, you’ll be accompanied by expert trackers and experienced naturalists who will guide you through the lush expanse. The journey promises to be an intimate experience that will unveil the captivating world of these gentle giants.

You can also participate in the exclusive Gorilla Habituation Experience, which provides an in-depth understanding of gorilla behavior during their habituation process. This rare opportunity allows you to spend extended time with gorilla families and observe them up close.

Your participation in this adventure also contributes to the conservation of gorillas. The fees from trekking permits directly contribute to safeguarding these endangered species and preserving their natural habitats.

About Gorilla Trekking

When you trek for gorillas in mountainous rainforests, you must be ready for long walks on steep, narrow paths and through dense jungle. A guide will lead you, clearing the way with a machete. It’s essential to be fit and have proper gear, including hiking boots that fit well and protect your ankles, double-layered socks with cotton inside and thick outside layers, and knee-high gaiters.

Knowing that gorillas can get sick from human illnesses is critical, so you can’t go on a gorilla trek if you have a cold or other contagious disease.

When to Go Gorilla Trekking

If you plan to go gorilla trekking in Uganda or Rwanda, the best time is during the dry season. This season happens twice yearly: from December to February and June to September. Although it’s still quite humid and wet during these periods, it’s the most comfortable time to trek. Just make sure to wear good shoes that can handle the mud!
