Gorilla Tracking in Uganda

Travel to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park for a unique gorilla tracking experience. This park, consisting out the oldest forest in Africa (about 25,000 years old) is pristine and has an amazing biodiversity system. When visiting Uganda, a gorilla tracking activity will probably be high on your list. A truly unique experience that is only possible in a few places in the world.

The national park is divided into 4 parts (Buhoma, Rihuja, Rushaga and Nkuringo district) where more than 400 mountain gorillas live in different families. In this ancient jungle, besides mountain gorillas there are also 9 other monkey species, different bird species and butterfly species.

A tracking in search of the mountain gorillas is an unforgettable experience. We recommend that you bring good shoes, clothing and protection gear. The hike to the mountain gorillas can be challenging and vary in distance as the groups move every day. Once you have reached a family, you will have an hour to stand face-to-face with this majestic animal.

If you are less mobile, please let us know beforehand. There are possibilities to have a face-to-face encounter with the mountain gorilla even when you have limited mobility. Though, we must be informed in advance to make necessary arrangements.

To avoid the extinction of the gorilla and also to prevent mass tourism, a visit to the mountain gorillas is an expensive activity. Gorilla tracking requires a permit that costs $700 p.p. In addition, there are costs for the accommodation, meals, guide and safari car. Is seeing the mountain gorillas on your bucket list? And do you want to make this wish come true? We will take care of everything so you don’t have to worry!
