Uganda Gorilla Safaris

  • Multiple treks through Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest offer close-up encounters with mountain gorillas.

  • Chimpanzees and other primates live in the trees of Kibale Forest National Park.

  • Multiple gorilla tracking expeditions with expert guides maximize photo opportunities with the endangered mountain gorillas.

  • Ecotourism provides opportunities for protecting gorillas and their forest homes and for helping the local people.

Expert guides accompany travelers as they rise early in the morning to trek through dense jungle habitat looking for signs of mountain gorillas. Other wildlife travelers may spot include lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant, antelope and other primates

A recent census by the Uganda Wildlife Authority identified 400 mountain gorillas in Bwindi National Park bringing the overall population estimate to 880, an increase from the 786 estimated in 2010. This exciting news brings hope for the future of mountain gorillas.
