Gorilla Trekking Safari in Uganda

Overview

The Africa Gorilla they call it but down here in East Africa we know it as the gentle giant, the mountain gorilla. The 3 Day Gorilla Trekking Safari in Rwanda takes you deep into the Eastern African mountain forest to meet the last of the endangered mountain gorillas. This experience is tough for the faint-hearted but the rewards are something you’ll talk about for the rest of your life.

You’ll be picked from a Entebbe Airport, 30 km from the capital of Uganda Kampala, then drive 8-9 hours or fly south west of the capital into the gorilla territory, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, where you’ll stay in a great jungle lodge setting. You’ll track the mountain gorillas the next day and also experience the African jungle scenes away from modern civilization. You will also meet the shortest people in the world with an authentic and unique culture that you will get to experience through folk songs, dances and food.

Highlights

  • Drive/Fly Entebbe to Bwindi Impenetrable NP
  • Gorilla Trekking in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable NP
