This is a fully guided 3 day excursion to visit the mountain gorillas of Bwindi, Uganda. With the help of highly trained guides you will find yourself face-to-face with these amazing animals that seem so human that they will take your breath away!
Mountain Gorilla’s are naturally afraid of humans and will flee or aggressively charge to protect themselves and their group. The gorillas you will meet will have undergone ‘habituation’, where over a two year period the group have come to accept the presence of humans in their environment through daily peaceful contact.
The long journey and trek through the dense and natural rain forests is worth every minute for the privilege of spending time with these fascinating and most endangered mammals. Youngsters may show off and huge silver backs may beat their chests, but nothing beats just witnessing a gorilla family as they go about their daily business, playing games together, and enjoying their all too fragile world. It is no wonder that gorilla trekking is often referred to as ‘the most memorable safari in the world’.
This tour is priced for a stay in a mid range lodge, however can be tailored and arranged to suit your specific requirements, travel dates and budget. By taking this tour your money will directly help in the conservation of this very special mammal. Thank you for caring.
Please be aware that Gorilla permits in Uganda and Rwanda can only be issued to participants aged 15 and above. However, we can make other arrangements for members of your party under this age to allow adults to participate in this great adventure!
