Safari Highlights

The mountain gorillas in Uganda are part of a worldwide population of just 800 individuals. The gorillas we are permitted to visit belong to either one of ten family groups, habituated for gorilla trekking.

For up to five years each, these groups have undergone an extremely delicate process that has gradually brought them to tolerate the presence of humans for a brief period every day and allow a few privileged visitors to interact with them in the wild. The gorillas are by no means tame, and are completely wild animals. However, experienced guides will accompany us on our tracking, and will help us locate the group’s whereabouts. The time taken to track the gorillas can vary enormously - from one to seven hours.
