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. You will need a gorilla permit to do the trek to see the gorillas, which we organise for you. The permits are vital in helping finance patrols that are responsible for protecting the gorillas from poachers.
Uganda presents a unique experience for overland camping safaris and gorilla trekking safaris to get up close and personal with our closest living relative.
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.
