Overview

This 3 day Uganda Gorilla safari, will take you for Gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park which covers an area of 321 sqkm and is among the oldest forests lasting over 25,000 years. You will be able to trek one of the 12 habituated mountain gorilla groups.
Besides the Gorillas, you will also have an opportunity to see other primates such as the Red tailored monkeys, Chimpanzees, baboons, black and white colobus monkey among others. This forest is also home for 120 mammals, 51 reptiles, 310 butterflies’ species, 27 species of frogs, geckos, chameleons, 163 tree species, 104 fern species, 1000 flowering plants, as well as over 350 species of birds such as the hornbills and the Turaco!

Gorilla trekking takes around 2 – 8 hours, which is worth it as those into hiking will have a great time climbing up and about the rolling hills, and going through the lush vegetation.
Depending on the availability of the permits at the time of your confirmation, you may do gorilla tracking from Buhoma, Rushaga and Ruhija.
