Gorilla Tracking in Uganda

 
Nicknamed the ‘Pearl of Africa,’ Uganda radiates natural beauty with exquisite greenery, deep tranquil lakes, soaring mountains, and perhaps the greatest natural treasure of all — half of the world's last remaining mountain gorilla population. Joining a group to trek and see them is one of the most exhilarating and heart-warming wildlife experiences possible.

Where to See Gorillas

The once-in-a-lifetime experience of seeing the regal mountain gorilla on a trek is one of Uganda’s major tourist draw cards. It is in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Mgahinga National Parks that you can spend a privileged hour in the company of a family of critically endangered mountain gorillas.

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

Resting on the edge of the Rift Valley in south-western Uganda is one of the country’s oldest and most biologically diverse rainforests — the ‘impenetrable forest’. These dense, misty jungle slopes form the better part of the magnificent Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and encompass one of the last remaining habitats of the highly endangered mountain gorilla. The park is also home to several primate species, including troops of chimpanzees, monkeys, and baboons, herds of roaming forest elephant and the rare giant forest hog, however it is the magnificent mountain gorilla that takes centre stage here.

Unforgettable Trekking Experience

There are limited numbers of day permits and mountainous and heavily forested terrain make for a challenging hike to see these incredible creatures. However the unforgettable experience of sitting in the presence of these incredible creatures that share 98% of our DNA is one not to be missed. David Attenborough described the experience as having ‘more meaning and mutual understanding in exchanging a glance with a gorilla than any other animal’. High praise indeed, but we have to agree — it is truly one of the most endearing and lasting wildlife exchanges we’ve ever had.
