Uganda-Home of Gorillas
No African Safari tour is complete without seeing the Mountain Gorillas! There are only 700 – 880 Mountain gorillas remaining on earth. The majority live in the Virunga Mountains that straddle Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Most of the gorillas live a wild existence, far from human reach. However, a handful of groups have been habituated and can be tracked and observed by small numbers of visitors under the watchful eyes of park rangers.
Uganda offers a life time chance and memorable experience of coming face to face with the mountain gorillas in Bwindi forest national park. When tracking these mountain gorillas through the jungle by foot, we ensure that our travellers keep their distance and respect that these creatures are in their natural habitat.
Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park is best known for its outstanding gorilla tracking, but it also provides refuge to elephant, chimpanzee, monkeys and various small antelope and bird species.if you a book a Uganda safari without Gorilla trekking then you will have missed an opportuinity to see these rare and threatened gorillas.
The variant biodiversity is supported by the fact that Bwindi is extremely old and also its slopes extend over a broad altitudinal range of 1447m above sea level, enabling habitats ranging from lowland forest to Afromontane vegetation.
