Uganda Gorilla Trekking Highlights
- Bwindi Impenetrable Forest
- Gorilla tracking
On this Uganda Gorilla Trekking tour, you will visit mist-covered mountains in search of the largest living primates in the heart of Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Enjoy excellent gorilla-sighting opportunities in Bwindi; Africa’s oldest rainforest.
Pick up from Entebbe International airport upon arrival and transfer to hotel for overnight stay. (Bed only)
After breakfast drive to Bwindi Forest, located in south-western Uganda. It is world-renowned for its excellent gorilla-sighting opportunities – the forest is home to half of the remaining mountain gorillas on earth. This gorilla experience takes place among a rugged landscape of dense jungle, cascading waterfalls, sparkling mountain streams, deep valleys, and steep ridges.
The untouched forest has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its breath-taking natural beauty and unique ecological significance, and aside from the amazing gorilla interactions, there are other draw cards such as a network of forest walks, over 340 species of bird to spot, and a variety of brightly-coloured butterflies to identify. Arrival will be in the late afternoon with dinner and overnight at a safari lodge. (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner)
Wake early for a hearty breakfast to give you the energy needed for gorilla trekking. Report to the ranger station for registration and a talk by one of the rangers. The guides will then take you through the bush, pushing your way through the undergrowth, to track the gorillas. (Please note this trek can take from 30 minutes to 5-6 hours). A reasonable degree of fitness is required, as well as a sturdy pair of walking shoes. Sit in the forest among the gorillas, listening to them ‘talk’ to one another, and marvel at the sheer size of the dominant male, the Silverback. It is an extraordinary feeling sitting in the dense rainforest knowing you are with a few of the last remaining mountain gorillas. It’s amazing to think there are only about 650 of these beautiful creatures left. (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner)
