Gorilla Trekking Safaris - Rwanda and Uganda

Gorilla Trekking Safaris in Rwanda and Uganda are some of the unmatched adventures on your East African holiday. We organise adventurous and affordable Gorilla trekking tours in Volcanoes National Park of Rwanda and Bwindi Impenetrable forest in Uganda. Be part of the next adventure holiday for these gentle apes in their natural habitats. Trekking the Mountain Gorillas through the unbeaten jungles, tourists are guided by ranger guides following whispers, the nests and clues in the undergrowth. Here they decide on the most direct routes, slashing at the creepers for clear pathways. The arduous hike and unforgiving jungle are all worth it in the sight of the Gorillas – The most awe-inspiring creatures with unforgettable life-affirming experiences. There are restrictions on the daily number of hikers searching for the Mountain gorillas in their natural environment due to conservation. As such, people intending to track gorillas need to book their permits in advance, at least a month before.

3 Days Rwanda Gorilla Trekking and Golden Monkeys

Visit Rwanda and take a tour of Volcanoes National Park on a 3-day adventurous trip with the Mountain Gorillas and endangered Golden Monkeys. You will hike through the jungles on your first trek in search of Gorillas, and then the second day will be tracking the Golden Monkeys. All treks start at the same time from different points, but we select a group for tourists depending on their fitness and how much time they would like to spend in the jungle. From your overnight stay, you will report to the briefing centre at 7:am to learn about your Gorilla family and take precautions on how to behave when you find the Gorillas.

Volcanoes National Park - Rwanda

The Virunga Mountain jungles are alive with the calls of colourful birds, with sunbeams at times breaking through the dense foliage of the forests. With the sweat pouring from the jungle temples, the Mountain gorilla groups oblivious to the tourists below are at peace. The jungles are protected by armed guards from any form of poaching, and these wonderful creatures live the charmed life for which Rwanda’s Misty Volcanoes National Park is rightly celebrated. Fewer than 1000 are believed to be alive, with around 400 living in the verdant great Virunga Mountains, a chain of six extinct volcanoes straddling the borders of Rwanda, Uganda, and DR Congo.

Gorilla Conservation; Protecting Volcanoes National Park and the forest habitat supports a wide diversity of wild animals. These include elephants, buffalos, and bushbucks, a wealth of bird life and related insects and plants. The local communities have been engaged directly in conservation efforts, to help gorilla tourism and mitigate negative conservation impacts. Community initiatives, such as the Iby’iwacu Cultural Village, allow tourists to get a glimpse of the traditional Rwandan people’s way of life. These contribute directly to alleviating the poverty of the local communities that live in proximity to the park with its endangered Mountain Gorillas. These various community projects, which are partially funded by tourism revenue, provide tangible benefits that help support local people and reduce conflict between people and gorillas.

Gorilla Trekking in Uganda

Uganda holds almost half of the remaining Mountain Gorillas in the world in its Bwindi Forest. On the other hand, Mgahinga National Park, which shares the border with Rwanda and DR Congo, has a single Gorilla family available for trekkers. Any Uganda wildlife safari is highlighted with Gorilla tours. The intimidating presence of our near-rare genetic connection makes the feeling of seeing mountain gorillas in the wild fantastic. Gorilla trekking is easily among the top ten most famous and most sought-after activities in which tourists spend the better part of their travelling budget in Uganda. Getting the chance to spend a fleeting, awkward, beautiful moment with a mountain gorilla in its natural habitat is worth it.

As many times as possible, people’s life dreams revolve around the beautiful aspects of nature. An encounter with mountain gorillas in their natural setting in the African jungle is such an everlasting experience. In Uganda, gorilla trekking in the jungles of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, a UNESCO Natural World Heritage site, is just that. Bwindi’s mountain gorillas are a hot commodity. From afar, it’s hard to distinguish a mountain gorilla from another ape. The mountain gorilla is a largely vegetarian animal that typically eats 60 species of plants and 85 pounds of food a day. Their range is vast – about 8 to 40 miles daily.
