Gorilla Trekking in Africa

Track and observe gorillas in
their natural habitats, deep in
the rain forests of Uganda,
Rwanda and Congo. This experience
is one travelers will never forget.

Gorilla Trekking

Gorilla trekking projects offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to track mountain gorillas in their natural habitat, to see how these great apes live and interact. Long poached for bush meat and illegal traditional medicine, these magnificent animals are highly endangered, but due to gorilla tourism and increased awareness and protection measurements, they are slowly becoming safe.

Gorilla Treks in Congo, Uganda & Rwanda

In Rwanda, the best place to see gorillas is Parc National des Volcans, while in Uganda gorillas can be found in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.

In the Republic of Congo, gorillas can be found in the volcanic forests areas of Virunga National Park, which lies along the border of Congo and Uganda.

Gorilla Safaris

Visitors to gorilla families should only ever go with a trained guide to ensure that the gorillas are not disturbed or frightened. Human interference is kept to a minim to avoid upsetting the gorillas, but visitors are able to see the gorillas up close and spend time observing these amazing animals.
