Gorilla Trekking in Uganda
Mountain Gorilla Trekking in Uganda is an ultimate experience that everyone should try in a lifetime.
Uganda boasts of having more than half of the remaining mountain gorillas in the world. In Uganda gorillas are seen in Bwindi Impenetrable Gorilla National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park.
Gorilla Tracking Safari organizes both short and long gorilla trekking tours in Uganda. Our gorilla safaris not only include tracking the rare forest giants but also may be tailor made for you to include other special interests; bird watching, wildlife safaris, chimpanzee tracking and community tours in the neighboring national parks of Queen Elizabeth, Lake Mburo, Kibale Forest, Murchison Falls National Park.
Uganda Gorillas are found in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park in south western Uganda. Bwindi has half the number of mountain gorillas remaining in the whole world. Bwindi is the only national park in the world where chimps co-exist with mountain Gorillas. To visit Uganda gorillas, one needs a gorilla permit that costs USD600.00 per trek.
Mgahinga National Park is the other Park where Uganda gorillas are found. It is one of the parks in the virunga ranges shared between Uganda, Rwanda, and DRC.
Gorilla tracking in Uganda is a captivation and unforgettable experience which more than repays the effort needed to reach Bwindi and to trek through the forest. Bwindi has thirteen habituated gorilla groups that are tracked by tourists. Three of these are in the vicinity of Buhoma and one at Nkuringo. Uganda gorillas can also be visited in Ruhija and Rushaga regions of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
Gorilla habituation experience is another way of spending more time with Uganda gorillas. Gorilla habituation experience in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is an initiative aimed at giving more time with gorillas to those who can afford. Gorilla habituation experience permits cost USD1500.00 per trek in the southern part of Bwind Impenetrable National Park and each gorilla family under habituation is visited by a maximum number number of 4 people.
