Tour Details

For many tourists, the gorilla tracking is the highlight of their trip and often a reason to travel to Uganda. In Uganda, you can visit the Gorilla’s at Bwindi Impenetrable Forest NP and Mgahinga Gorilla NP. Bwindi is Africa’s oldest rainforest and has beautiful ridges, steep valleys and waterfalls. Be prepared for some steep hikes though. Buhoma is the most accessible track, whereas in Rushaga you can find the largest number of primates. Mgahinga is the path less traveled. Occasionally the gorillas cross to Rwanda, but don’t worry as you will get a replacement ticket for Bwindi.

Home to one of Uganda’s most beautiful tropical forests, Kibale National Park is a haven for chimpanzees and other wildlife, which makes for a great safari tour. Witness first hand the density and diversity of primates, including endangered species in their natural habitat. The northern section of the park experiences plenty of rainfall during the months of March to May and September to November, so be sure to take along a raincoat during those wet months. A simple bus ride from Kampala will get you to the park any day of the week.

Day 3,Bwindi National Park

The highlight of your safari: a meeting with the gentle giants of Bwindi! Especially hikers will love the tracking in the beautiful ecosystem of the park. Expect to walk a long distance in steep and muddy conditions, sometimes with rain overhead, before you encounter any gorillas. But it will definitely be worthwhile as you observe them closely while they eat, play and rest. A unique and unforgettable experience! The mountain gorillas in Bwindi are part of a worldwide population of just 800 individuals. The gorillas we are allowed to track belong to one of nine habituated family groups. For up to five years each, these groups have undergone an extremely delicate process that allows a few privileged visitors to interact with them in the wild. Experienced guides will accompany you, many of who have been involved in the habituation process. Your group will be allowed a maximum of one hour with them – a look into one of these magnificent creatures’ eyes brings home the bond that exists between them and us.
