Uganda - Gorilla trekking
Uganda, known as the Pearl of Africa, is one of only 3 countries that is home to the magnificent Mountain Gorilla, sadly, a Critically Endangered species. As part of the conservation efforts, the numbers of visitors per day allowed to ‘visit with’ a Gorilla family are limited.
While Mountain Gorillas are massive, powerfully strong primates, they are generally gentle and shy creatures. They are also social creatures and tend to stay in groups, led by a dominant male, which is a Silverback. Coming face-to-face with a gorilla and having a chance to observe a family in action in its natural setting, makes for an unforgettable experience. With armed and trained guides escorting you, a trek through the forests and wilderness of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is itself an incredible experience, only to be crowned with the opportunity of spending time observing the Mountain Gorillas.
A reasonable level of physical fitness is required in order to undertake this trek, but every moment of the tough trek will be worth it once the mountain gorillas are sighted!
