Gorilla Trekking and Wildlife Safaris in Uganda

Uganda Wildlife Safaris – Budget Gorilla Trekking.

A safari through Uganda is not complete unless it combines gorilla trekking and wildlife safaris encounters. Uganda s one of the very few African gorilla safari destinations that offer clients a lifetime opportunity to track mountain gorillas and a lot of exciting wildlife species on a single safari.

Uganda is a special destination for mountain gorilla trekking and this is because it’s the only country all over the world with the highest number of these gentle giants. Uganda is home to more than half of the remaining population of gorillas which makes the country an ideal gorilla trekking destination.  Mountain gorillas can be trekked in two destinations and that’s from Bwindi’s impenetrable National game park and Mgahinga Gorilla national game park.

Bwindi impenetrable Impentrable National Game Park

If your dream is to look into the eyes of mountain gorillas, then Bwindi’s impenetrable national game park is the best destination to make your dreams come true. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is located in southwestern Uganda on the edges of the Rift Valley on the border of Rwanda and the democratic republic of Congo, covering an area of 331 square kilometers within the Districts of Kabale, Kisoro, and Kanungu

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park is home to now nineteen Gorilla families that can be tracked by tourists in a day, each family can be trekked by only eight tourists per a move intended to conserve the gentle giants. The gorilla trek can take anywhere from 1 hour to eight hours and the search starts from where the gorillas were last seen the previous evening. When found, each visitor is allowed not more than one hour to spend some time with the gorillas taking a picture and short videos to share with loved ones back home.

Mgahinga Gorilla National Game Park is located in southwestern Uganda bordering Rwanda to the south and Congo to the west and only 14 kilometers from Kisoro town. Mgahinga Gorilla National Park is the smallest of all national parks in Uganda. The park was created to protect the mountain gorillas that roam freely within the Virunga region. Many tourists visit the Mgahinga National Park for gorilla trekking. Currently, there is only one habituated gorilla group that can be visited by tourists and that’s the Nyakagezi Gorilla Group.

Africa gorilla trekking safaris become more fulfilling when it’s combined with an encounter with other wildlife species in other Ugandan national parks. In most cases, a gorilla trekking safari would take a maximum of these days to encounter mountain gorillas and for clients with extra days on their hands and a thirst to explore other parts of Uganda, more exciting destinations can be added to the package.
