Uganda is home to over half of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas, making it one of the best places to go gorilla trekking. Visitors can experience these majestic creatures up close, watching them in their natural habitat and learning about their behavior and conservation efforts.
Gorilla trekking in Uganda requires a permit, which can be obtained through the Uganda Wildlife Authority or a tour operator. Visitors then go on guided treks through the forests of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park to reach the gorilla families. Treks can take anywhere from 1-8 hours depending on the location of the gorillas.
Gorilla trekking in Uganda is a unique and unforgettable wildlife experience that offers a chance to connect with nature and learn about conservation efforts.
