Gorilla Trekking in Uganda

Uganda, often referred to as the 'Pearl of Africa', is a country of striking beauty and home to the deepest crater lake in all of Africa, Lake Bunyoni.

Its national parks and wildlife reserves boast over 300 species of mammal and more than 1000 species of birds, though Uganda's major attraction is the approximate 600 remaining mountain gorilla.

Gorillas in the Mist

Trekking to see the mountain gorilla

Trekking safaris are a wonderful experience, allowing you the opportunity to have a close encounter with these gentle giants of the jungle in their natural habitat. From a base at Lake Bunyoni the trekking takes place in Uganda, Rwanda or Democratic Republic of Congo, dependent on local conditions and the availability of the gorilla permits. Uganda presents a unique experience for overland camping safaris and gorilla trekking safaris to get up close and personal with our closest living relative.

Morning Charlie, Just wanted to comment on the truly amazing trip I had. Everything was so well organised and everybody was committed to working together to make sure it was a memorable trek. I chose to have a porter who couldn't be faulted and I would definitely recommend this service. The time with the gorillas was beyond belief. They were so close and relaxed but one roar and you were reminded who was in charge. Thanks Charlie, another striking trip to savour over. ”
